Any Women can do well in business by using their skills, ingenuity, creativity, charm, intelligence, experience and knowledge base. But not all women can get ahead in business.
But what makes the difference between a Woman who can keep their job or business ticking over and one who can really excel, grow themselves and the business to new levels and make an exceptional impact?
Some of the traits and techniques below can really make you stand out from the rest!
If are you told “no,” that doesn’t mean you should give up on your vision. Persistence, perseverance and the belief in yourself and your idea will help you get ahead in business. If people doubt you, or try to talk you out of ideas you have your heart set on, then keep focusing on it to make it happen.That passion alone will go a long way.
Having confidence in your ideas, vision and yourself will set you apart and raise your profile in business. The old confidence trick – acting with confidence, even if you do not have it – can get you ahead. Even if you are unsure how to do something, if you show confidence in your ability to do the task, and make time to learn it, you will notice results.
“Even if I’m completely unsure, I’ll pretend I know exactly what I’m talking about and make a decision” – Anna Wintour
It’s all in the execution
You could have any business idea, but the strength of the idea is only as strong as the execution of it. What will set you apart from others is your launch, your marketing, creativity, networking, word-of-mouth, and promotion of your idea. Once you get your idea out there, assuming your idea or product is quality, you should be able to watch your business grow.
Be a Networking Queen
That’s right! You are a natural networker, so use your social networks – both on and offline – to build professional relationships with other women and business leaders. Don’t view others as your competition, instead everyone is your business partner when it comes to social networking. The more connections you make, the larger your audience for promoting your business to. Connect with media, influencers, bloggers, business groups, your clients and customers – anyone and everyone!
