You don’t have to be a man to be a successful entrepreneur; women are as equally great or are better entrepreneurs. In the past, entrepreneurship was once considered a man’s domain; but in today’s society you’ll find that many (although not enough) of them are run by women too. According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, more than 9 million U.S. firms are now owned by women, employing nearly 8 million people and generating $1.5 trillion in sales. Although our society has evolved and more women are embracing entrepreneurship, they often face challenges and are still looked down on when it comes to running a business.

Despite the challenges and mishaps, women remain strong and continue to grow in number as years pass by. From lawyer firms to tech and fashion to beauty; women start businesses in many categories. No matter what line of business women entrepreneurs are in, they see that there are many changes that need to happen in the specific field. Women entrepreneurs strive to bring those needed and refreshing changes to it. And because of this; women tend to bring a brand new perspective, attitude and skill set toward business like creativity and organizational skills, which often helps make them better entrepreneurs.

Below are 7 reasons why women make better entrepreneurs than men:

Women are more honest.

Let’s be honest (ha); women are not afraid to open up and talk about their fears or sharing their failings because they have a less ego attached to the success or failure of the business. Women typically rather address issues firsthand than ignore them. In short, women are more open and honest about what is going-on and that makes it easier for others to help.

Women are not afraid to ask for help.

Women entrepreneurs are not afraid to ask others for help and constantly ask questions when they need it. As a result, this helps to prevent numerous problems from occurring because help was asked for. Getting help from others not only gets the job done right but also allows entrepreneurs to grow and learn more.

Women possess strong communication skills and social intelligence.

Women show more empathy, which allows them to form and make more connections with those surrounding them in their work. While most men are working only for the financial aspect, quite a few women work to take pride in helping others as well. Because of this, many women entrepreneurs have the ability to create long lasting relationships in their business.

Women are perfectionists.

Women entrepreneurs make sure the job is done right. They believe taking their time is way better than rushing to get it done – this allows them to produce much high-quality results.

Women value relationships and well-being more than business.

Unlike men, wealth is not their primary focus. Women entrepreneurs will always put the health and wellbeing of their spouse and family as their main priority. If they have to choose between the business and the family, the family always wins. Men typically prioritizes business first then health and wellbeing in order to support the family down the line. Many times, because of this, by the time the business is financially successful the family may have moved on because they were not a priority.

Women are great multitaskers and are very organized.

Naturally, women can handle more than one task at a time, while still keeping organized. Because of this, many women entrepreneurs can work on various areas of the job at once without any trouble.

Women possess creativity.

Women have creative minds – they often think outside of the box to create things that will help to provide better services and make unique products.
