Ellen Rohr, President of Bare Bones Biz, recently wrote a blog post that asked, “What Qualities Gauge a Woman’s Success in Business?” In the post she gave examples of women who didn’t worry about traditional business theory. They just jumped in and went to work. Here are some examples:
1. Mary Kay Ash. Everyone is familiar with the Pink Cadillacs given to women who meet their sales goals by selling large amounts of Mary Kay Products. She started her business because a man that she had trained refused to promote her. She didn’t worry about the numbers she went out and built a successful business and brand.
2. Sara Blakely. The founder of Spanx, built a brand when there were people reminding her about the barriers that could affect her success. She blocked all of that out advice and like Nike, Just Did It. Now she is worth a $1 billion.
3. Arianna Huffington. The founder of the Huffington Post, just followed her heart and did what she felt was best for her. The secret to her success is doing what she loves and not worrying about all the other things.
The one thing these women have in common is that they put on their big girl panties and went to work. They didn’t worry about what people said or the things that could derail their businesses they just keep going and they became successful women. Just keep going!
