With female voices often being drowned out, it is part of my passion to create platforms for female voices to be heard, clearly, and vocally.
The 7 Top Highly Successful Female Founders
(Quotes & partial quotes cited from Entrepreneur.com)
“I think entrepreneurship is combining a passion with the tenacity to problem-solve and the fearlessness to fail. The thing that I [would want to tell] people who are say, in a graduate business school class about entrepreneurship and expect that they’ll just go out and start a successful company is that being a successful entrepreneur is basically being the person who fails the least. It is just an exercise in a lot of different trial-and-error moments and failures. You have to assume that things are not always going to go the way you intended. But somehow, you have to adopt an unyielding sense of optimism.”
—Julia Hartz, co-founder and CEO of Eventbrite
“The worst boss I ever had told me that I intimidated him and he would appreciate it if I stayed silent in meetings. I realized implicitly that the worst bosses are people who try to make the people around them smaller and believe that business and life are a zero-sum game. A great boss does the opposite. She makes her team think big and amplifies their ideas. She gives people on her team outsized opportunities to excel and convinces them that they can reach higher and dream bigger for their career.”
—Jennifer Hyman, co-founder and CEO of Rent the Runway
3. Just Keep Moving!
“You just have got to do whatever you need to do in order to keep the engine going or mentally reset. Keep moving forward.”
—Payal Kadakia, founder of ClassPass
4. Get In Touch With Your Intuition & Think Creatively
“I also ask myself, what is the problem that you’re trying to solve? A lot of times as we think about creating solutions, we think about what do we have right now and how can we make it better? I think a better question is just wiping the slate clean and saying, how in an ideal world, if we could rewrite everything, what would we do?
We do an exercise here and we ask, how would Southwest Airlines do this or how would Starbucks do this? Thinking about other companies with totally different business models and how they might approach challenges.”
—Katrina Lake, founder and CEO of Stitchfix
5. Make & Offer Services or Products You Yourself Need
“When I was concocting new formulations, playing with different pigments to mix and match and blend and create something that matched my personal skin tone.”
—Pat McGrath, makeup artist and founder of Pat McGrath Labs
“The normal thing to do after your 100th ‘no’ would be to stop, but you just have to persevere! I’d continuously pour my energy into things that I could refine and fix, trying to find people who believed in my vision and would come along for the ride.”
—Melanie Perkins, co-founder and CEO of Canva
7. Keep Learning
“A lot of confidence comes from knowledge. It’s important for people who are starting businesses to be experts in their field, and that everybody needs to look to you as the person who knows it all — and not in a negative way.”
—Kathryn Petralia, co-founder of Kabbage
