The one habit that successful businesswomen and female entrepreneurs have is determination. Failure doesn't stop them, and any setbacks are needed to be dealt. They have faced investors shooting them down, patents and licenses not being approved, and losing money. Despite that, they never stopped.
SET GOALS AND MILESTONES
It sounds cliché to some but to succeed; you have to set goals. Lay down what you want to achieve. After all, how can you reach a target you can't see. Once you have hit your target, you raise the bar higher. Most of these women also celebrate the milestones along their journey, no matter how little they are. These little victories are assurances you're doing the right thing.
PUSH PASSION TO THE FOREFRONT
Women who run lucrative businesses have built it based on their passion. For example, Anita Roddick's passion for the environment led to her founding The Body Shop. Find your passion and let that be your guide. It helps to remember that all successful business owners have doubts about their capabilities. But all have committed to the idea 100 percent.
One of the most important things these women learned was how to say “NO”. The female species have been hardwired to say yes to everyone asking for help. But doing so will pull you in different directions, causing you and your clients to suffer. So just say yes to the projects you're excited about, don't be afraid to charge the right rates, and focus on finishing the job to your usual high standards.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Another key trait of successful female entrepreneurs is their belief in themselves. Self-confidence is what helped them to carry on despite setbacks and criticisms. It's also one of the best ways to capture the interest, trust, and respect of clients. But it's admittedly hard to be confident all the time. Doing things that may scare you will help you develop. For example, if you're uncomfortable with networking, attending one event a week and not leaving until you meet six different people can boost your confidence.
