Women in business; Something that should have happened decades ago!

open 4 bizFemale entrepreneurs are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the business world today. Gone are the days of big corporations run by boy’s club. Women are now on the scene and they are stepping up to the plate. In fact, women are becoming an invaluable commodity in the business world, it's now difficult to imagine any industry without these intelligent, creative and talented individuals.

With more woman becoming active in the business world there are now more women-owned businesses than ever before. Many of which, arguably, are being run better than their male-owned counterparts.

There has long been a school of thought that women are more suited to business than men. These thoughts have stemmed from many positive traits, which it can be argued, women have inherently more of than men.

Women are known to be perfectionists and often more dedicated to their jobs than men. Further, many women tend to be more diligent and conscientious in their work duties. These are all qualities required from a successful business person. Qualities, that many women have in spades.

There is no doubt that women are sociable in nature. As an entrepreneur, many women have the ability to maintain the perfect relationship with their customers and colleagues. Often thinking outside the box, providing fresh and new ideas.

These are just a few of the skills many women hold over their male counterparts. Many of these skills provide an indication as to why women-owned businesses flourish and succeed. We have come so far in the last century, unfortunately, however, there is still a distance to go. At this point in time, there is a gap in the value society puts on work done by women, versus the same work done by a man. As an example, there is a distinct lack of women in top managerial positions around the world, with only 2% of the world's billionaires being women.

It’s time, we are ready for the next step forward. We want to see women really embrace themselves and their potential. An example of that is the amazing work Black Anvil Construction Supplies are doing in Grand Prairie, TX. Black Anvil Construction Supplies is a certified, Woman owned and operated business. This deserves special mention, not only is Black Anvil’s woman owner running a successful business, she is doing it in an industry that is traditionally even more male-dominated than most.

The CEO of Black Anvil Construction Supplies Lori Moncur worked hard to rise to her position. Starting as an accounts payable clerk, Lori learned the skills of the constructions supply industry while at the same time building a solid foundation in the financial aspects associated with running a large scale business. Today, Black Anvil Construction Supplies is a force to be reckoned with in the construction supply industry. If you want to see an example of a woman-owned business kicking some serious goals, get down to Black Anvil Constructions and have a look today.
