Women entrepreneurship is said to be soaring. In the US, in 2021, 49% of new businesses were started up by women compared to 28% in 2019. Female entrepreneurship is also on the rise worldwide. But what makes a successful mindset as a female entrepreneur and that of a creative?

Passion and determination

Be passionate about your business and determined to make it a success. You need to be willing to put in the time and effort required to achieve your goals.

Creativity and innovation

Look for new and innovative solutions to problems that others may not see. You will need to take risks and try new things to achieve success.

Focus and perseverance

Stubbornly stay focused on your goals and persevere in the face of challenges and setbacks. You will need to bounce back from failures and keep moving forward and try new paths.

Strong leadership skills

You will need to lead your teams effectively. When you start out, it may just be yourself or one other, but as time goes on, you will need to communicate your vision clearly to others. They will look to you to be able to motivate and inspire them to achieve their overall goals.

Flexibility and adaptability

Adapt to changing circumstances and adjust your strategies accordingly. You will need to be willing to pivot your business model or strategy if it’s necessary to stay competitive and achieve success.

Continuous learning and growth

Creative female entrepreneurs are often lifelong learners, constantly seeking out new knowledge and skills to help them grow and improve their businesses. But what I have found over my last 20 years as a creative person is that the number one thing you need first and foremost is self-belief. No one is going to believe as much as you do in yourself and what you can do. This is all you! So get out there; the world needs more female entrepreneurs.
