It’s not a disadvantage, it’s an advantage…
Being a woman isn’t a disadvantage in the world of business except you say so. As women we shouldn’t always have to cry for space in the business world, instead take the bull by the horn and do the needful. Student? Young? Housewife? Nursing mother? No excuse is good enough…. What should women do?
Find out what you do well and turn it into a business. Start from home with some of the money you are wasting right now trying to keep up with the joneses. Stop buying those wigs ( funny enough most men are not so impressed with all those wigs and weaves we spend a fortune on, most don’t even notice.) and the latest Apple Iphones. Stop trying to look rich, instead invest in actually being rich.
Students should consider starting a business in school, Nigerian students have so much time on their hands doing nothing. Start as corpers instead of worrying about who would retain you after NYSC, that way by the time you marry or start having kids you already have a stable business bringing in stable income and with years of experience under your wings. If you are already married or getting older it’s all good, it’s never too late to start planning to be the best you, the world needs what you have. You already have everything you need to be the best woman you can be. Whatever you don’t have, you don’t need.
