Men aren’t the only ones who can find success as entrepreneurs. There are plenty of women who are inspirational role models to follow as well. Here are some of the lessons we can learn from the work of these female entrepreneurs.
1) Sheryl Sandberg
She believes that there will not be any female leaders in the future. There will be only “leaders.” Her goal is to aim for the highest goals possible, no matter what may happen. She continues to inspire with this perspective, even after becoming a widow in 2015.
2) Sara Blakely
She shows us that one good idea can turn into a billion-dollar empire. Her perspective is that what you may not know is the best possible strength you can access. It might be better to do things in a different way compared to everyone else.
3) Arianna Huffington
She is the example that many bloggers wish to follow, with her site leading her to become one of the most-known names in journalism today. Her perspective is that the more you work against fear, the easier it will be to defeat it.
4) Melinda Gates
She shows us that working as a team can be just as beneficial as working independently. Along with her husband, she helped to build Microsoft into a tech empire. Her perspective is to be grateful for the ideas and skills that others have which point you in the direction you need to go.
5) Denise Coats
She believes that risk can be a good thing. Her perspective is that when you understand what causes risk, it becomes easier to find success. If you focus on a person’s positive aspects, it becomes much easier to find love for them.
6) Folorunsho Alakya
She believes that anyone can become anything they want to be. Her perspective is that you must take things one step at a time. She started by creating her own fashion label. Then she invested into oil to become one of the richest women in Africa.
7) Oprah Winfrey
