When we think of successful female entrepreneurs, we often picture powerful women who never sleep, always have a plan, can conquer the world while bouncing a baby on her hip, and look fabulous while doing it.
While that might be an exaggeration, the truth is, many successful female entrepreneurs share some simple yet powerful traits that have helped them achieve their goals.
Here are seven common traits of successful female entrepreneurs that you can adopt to help you achieve success in your own business.
7 Traits Of Successful Entrepreneurs
There are a few things that most successful female entrepreneurs have in common, and they’re not all about the hustle and grind.
1. Take Quick And Messy Action
Successful female entrepreneurs are known for their ability to take quick and messy action.
They don’t wait until they have all the information, all the resources, or a perfect plan. Instead, they take action quickly and make adjustments as they go.
This allows them to gain momentum and make progress toward their goals faster than those who wait for the “perfect” moment. Because, let’s face it, who has time for perfection?
2. Start With The End In Mind
Another common trait of successful female entrepreneurs is that they start with the end in mind.
They have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and they work backward to create a plan to get there.
This allows them to stay focused on their goals and make decisions that align with their vision.
With clear goals, they are able to avoid shiny object syndrome in their business and reach milestones much faster.
3. Unwavering Belief In Yourself
I always say that 80% of your success as an entrepreneur comes from your mindset and confidence plays a huge role in that.
Confidence is the key to success and successful female entrepreneurs have an unwavering belief in themselves.
They believe that they can achieve their goals, even when things get tough.
This belief gives them the resilience and persistence to keep going, even in the face of obstacles and setbacks.
4. Multitasking Like A Boss
Successful female entrepreneurs are masters of multitasking.
They can have a conference call while doing yoga, answer emails while making dinner, and finish a proposal while breastfeeding (yes, it’s possible).
They know how to make the most of their time and are not afraid to mix work and life.
5. Embracing Imperfection
They don’t strive for perfection; they embrace imperfection. They know that mistakes and failures are part of the journey and that they can learn from them.
They don’t waste time trying to be flawless; they focus on being authentic and true to themselves.
They are in touch with what aligns with them personally and professionally and they aren’t afraid to experience “learning lessons” to get to the next level in their business.
6. Building A Support System
Successful female entrepreneurs know that they can’t do it all alone.
They build a support system of friends, family, and mentors who encourage them, challenge them, and help them grow.
They know how to delegate and ask for help when they need it. And when they succeed, they celebrate with their tribe.
They truly believe in community over competition.
7. Practicing Self-Care
They know that self-care is not a luxury, but a necessity.
They take care of their bodies, minds, and souls. They exercise, eat healthy, meditate, and take breaks when they need to.
They know that they can’t pour from an empty cup and that taking care of themselves is the foundation of their success.
While these are not the only traits that successful female entrepreneurs have, they are very common. Which of these traits do you need to work on? Which do you already have?
