What about when we’re not employees, but we’re the employer – or entrepreneur?
We do this to ourselves, according to a 2014 Forbes article, Study: Women entrepreneurs pay themselves less. Interestingly, this contradicts a 2013 article by the same publisher Women Entrepreneurs Out Earn Men By 14%.
This may sound like venting, although it’s more than that.
Since we are in this position, we need to make a concerted effort to get out of it.
We women need to help each other.
Network with one another.
Share referrals (or leads) with one another.
Mentor one another.
Share resources with one another.
And mostly, get to know one another.
Through relationships with we grow, learn and succeed.
Is that too touchy feely?
Let me put it this way: By increasing our networks, we increase the chances to hear about incredible opportunities, gain personal introductions, and open doors.
