Women from all walks of life have proven that it is possible to become a successful female entrepreneur in this age where innovation, business knowledge and creativity are key components of the business landscape. These examples of how to overcome adversity show that a simple dream can be recognized and turned into a great achievement. Kimberly Rosales, a successful entrepreneur and the founder of ChainMyne, shares her knowledge and offers eight essential pieces of advice to help women entrepreneurs succeed.

An idea is the foundation of everything. All it took to be a successful entrepreneur was an idea. This is the beginning point for any idea, no matter if it’s for a product or service. The motion is created by turning that idea into an actual business. Rosales says, “Explore innovative concepts. Do not be afraid to innovate and get creative.”

Do not be afraid to fail. If you are unable to overcome disappointment, you will not be able to pursue the things you’ve always wanted and desired. You have officially made it possible for disappointment to win, no matter how amazing your business idea may be.

The greatest mistake you can make as an aspiring entrepreneur is to allow fear of failure to stop you from achieving your goals. Believe in yourself, and have faith. You will have high and low points when you run a business. While success is a good part of a business, so are failures and challenges. All of them are part of building a company.

It is important to be independent. You don’t have to depend on men to be successful. However, they can still be great guides and information sources. Do not be afraid to be your own boss; it is important to have the passion to achieve your goals and dreams.

Entrepreneurship is more than just about the money, fame and glory. Many of the most successful female entrepreneurs are those who have made a positive impact on the world. Being a successful entrepreneur is more than just making money. It is about creating jobs, giving back to the community, and being socially responsible.

Hard work is the key to success. All successful business owners share a common thread: their drive and their willingness to work hard. Be determined to succeed and willing to work hard. Rosales adds, “Nobody wins by just contemplating an idea. Focus, dedication, and drive are essential.”

Learn how to adapt to changing times. You must be flexible in an extremely competitive world that is constantly changing. Successful businesses thrive because they are able to understand the needs of their customers and the market. Your business can provide what the public wants if you adapt to the demands of time.

Perfection is the highest standard. Successful women entrepreneurs emphasize the importance of giving your all in everything they do. You must be your best to be a successful entrepreneur. Although it can be difficult at times, the rewards are well worth it.

It’s not necessary for female business owners to behave like men in order to be as successful as their male counterparts. However, they do have to build a stronger network, something many don’t.

Research has shown that entrepreneurs with a larger network, which includes professional advisors, are more likely to grow their businesses faster and better than those without a large network. Rosales states, “Research shows that women entrepreneurs and business owners have a tendency to have fewer contacts than men in many economies.”

Both genders have a tendency to seek guidance from their closest contacts, which are their personal connections. In fact, women are more inclined to seek out direction from friends and family. Men, on the other hand, tend to rely more heavily upon the advice of their friends. Men also tended to rely more heavily on other sources of information, such as their workplace or expert guides.

The vast majority of entrepreneurs with broader networks and those who emphasized non-private advisors (such business or professional) tend to have higher levels of internationalization, development and other goals. Female entrepreneurs and business owners can be at a disadvantage, as they often have smaller networks and rely only on private advice.
