Fit your business into your life
Running a business involves long hours of work and this can be more complicated for women than men. If you do the bulk of the domestic care work, whether that’s caring for your children or looking after an elderly parent, you may need to ask for help while getting your business off the ground.

Find support and network from there

If possible, network with people in your local community and attend women in business workshops. It pays to be around like-minded, influential people as there are always ways of helping each other.
Launching a business can be tough whether you’re a male or female. However, many females can use social media and marketing as their strength – Reach out other women when you need help, hone in on your communication skills, and don’t be afraid to mark your business with a ‘woman-owned and operated’ stamp!
