For us, it's not just about being women in business. It's also about being entrepreneurs and succeeding in a competitive economy. The most important lessons we've learned:
WORK HARD + PERSEVERE
Never take your eye off the ball.
You must be yourself and have confidence in who you are, and when you are feeling uncertain, fake it until you make it.
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
Recognize and admit your mistakes as soon as possible. Take time to look back on these mistakes and learn from them.
INSIST ON "WE" VS. "I"
Assemble teams with different strengths to propel the organization forward faster.
