Female entrepreneurs, it’s time to raise our voices.
Why? Because this our current reality:
Women are expected to be quiet, polite, and differential.
Women are expected to look amazingly perfect – all while putting on a façade of a perfect life, marriage, home, and children.
Women are not supposed to be troublemakers. We are not supposed to create conflict and rock the boat.

Women are supposed to love our children but not try to change the world for them.
Our society does not trust women – from making decisions about what’s best for our bodies to not believing us when we accuse men of rape or sexual harassment.
Women are supposed to be small – physically, mentally, and emotionally – and not take up space.

It’s time for female entrepreneurs to lead the charge – to raise our voices and to have a bigger presence – and use our platforms and businesses to make the world a better place for all humans (for generations to come).
You see, female entrepreneur, we are leaders. We are changemakers. We are here – not to be silent – but to be a strong voice and to advocate for a better world.
Our world is at a crossroads. We can stay on our current path filled with sexism, racism, xenophobia, climate change denial, voter suppression, and other injustices. Or we can take a new path – one of love, compassion, human rights, equal rights, and green policies.
I vote for the new path. How about you?
You see: Female entrepreneurs can be the shepherds who bring this world to love, enlightenment, justice, and equality.
It just starts with saying yes. Bravely. Continue reading
