Confidence and success go hand in hand.
Unsurprisingly, 2023 saw a significant increase in the number of women-owned businesses. Now is the perfect time to take your idea to the next step.
However, despite this increase, access to capital and ultimate success can still be more difficult for female entrepreneurs compared to their male counterparts.
CEO, coach, and best-selling author Eleanor Beaton is dedicated to helping women achieve their goals of becoming successful entrepreneurs.
Here are three small habits that will help you be more successful than most entrepreneurs.
1. Find friends
Women often make the mistake of trying to serve everyone. When growing your business, this mindset can quickly derail your plans. It's time to ignore the voices that are inconvenient for you.
Keep people in the room who support you and want you to succeed. These are your people.
Additionally, be sure to look for someone with the experience you don't have. Let's learn from them.
By referring to their methodology, you can make it your own. This is how you build confidence as a true entrepreneur.
2. Get out of your comfort zone
Make an effort to expand your horizons beyond your current scope. It's easy to maintain a sideways mindset when running your own business.
But if you stay here, you might end up stuck in a safe zone with little room for growth.
To grow, embrace flexibility. This doesn't mean sacrificing your vision or goals. Be open to trying new things and collaborating with others.
Even ideas that seem unpleasant at first can be the key to taking your business to the next level of success.
3. Enough is enough
Take your focus off abundance. It's all about profit. This mindset distracts from the real goal: business success.
You will also constantly be asking, “Am I enough?” and “Am I doing enough?”
Before you know it, you may find yourself spending more money and losing more money on ideas that don't work.
Instead, enough is enough. Stop second-guessing yourself and trust that you are heading in the right direction.
Steady growth is the key to success.
Are there ups and downs? yes! But they are on par with each other. This enough-enough mindset will help you stay focused, grow your business, and become a better leader.
Women entrepreneurs are exploding, and you can join them. Once you find your entrepreneurial confidence, you'll be set up for success.
