Resource for Women: Entreprenista

 

I have been searching for more resources for women who want to start their own business.  I found one that I like called Entreprenista.  Founder Tara Holling, started the site because she loves entrepreneurship, she is passionate about helping other women, and she became frustrated by building successful businesses.  Her entrepreneur Manifesto is awesome!

 

I am an entrepreneur. I am a dreamer. I am a visionary. I am a leader. I am a creative. I am a rebel. I am a firestarter. I am a wild card. I am a bold and courageous risk-taker. I am passionate. I am fierce. I am powerful. I am brilliant. I am wise. I am worthy. I experience success, and I experience failure. I experience joy, and I experience pain. I experience confidence and pride, and I experience self-doubt and fear. I call deep on my courage. I make mistakes with gusto. I live out loud. I leap before I look. I buck the status quo. I BURN THE DAMN BOX, and I burn the midnight oil. I run confidently and steadfastly and boldly in the direction of my dreams, and I do not-will not-must not accept defeat as an outcome.

I. AM. Unstoppable.

Three Lessons for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

7 Lessons for Aspiring Entrepreneurs

Sunday Steinkirchner recently wrote an article about what she has learned over the past 10 years as an entrepreneur.  Here are my favorites:

1. Find out what you want to do.  I think this is the most important one because if you don’t know what you want you will waste time wandering aimlessly into different situations.

2.  Just Do It. Fear can often be conquered by just doing.  If you start you will figure the other stuff out.

3. Keep Doing It. Keep playing the game! You never know what could happen if you don’t keep trying.

Being an entrepreneur is hard and requires courage.  If you want to live your dream you have to put fear aside and go for it.
