Women entrepreneurs are taking the business world by storm, increasing the amount of women owned businesses more and more every year. What is driving women to become entrepreneurs? There is a method to their madness.
- Work-Life Balance
It is very beneficial to have a good work-life balance. First of all, you get to spend more time with family and friends. You also have time to do things you enjoy outside of work that spark creativity, like reading or getting out to exercise, etc. This will reduce stress and help make you more productive at work as well as being healthier.
- Pursue a Passion
This one actually ties into having a good work-life balance. Women are working for themselves to live out their dream. You know what they say, do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.
- Be Their Own Boss
This encompasses the first two and then some. Being your own boss is definitely the biggest benefit of working for yourself. You can make your own hours, work from almost anywhere, pursue your passion, and so much more.
Maybe the question should be, why aren’t MORE women becoming entrepreneurs?
