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.
