Do you Want to Become a Fempreneur (Female Entrepreneur) in 2021?

Let’s face it, 2020 was not our best year as women. We had to pivot, homeschool and many of us left the workforce entirely (some 2.2 million US women between February - October 2020). We were stressed, stretched and in need of change. As we move further into 2021, it’s time to regroup, recharge and come up with a new plan. We want more for ourselves professionally- a gig that provides greater flexibility and control.

So, what’s your plan? Could it be that you want to launch your own business this year? More and more women are making that exact move. In fact, 42% of all US small business owners are women.

Although the freedom and flexibility of an entrepreneurial lifestyle are very appealing, and many women want to become entrepreneurs, that initial leap into becoming a female founder can be scary. If you’re like most, you’re probably reluctant to give up that nice, comfy paycheck. Never fear. There are some things that you can do to ease your apprehension. And, as both an entrepreneurship coach and the author of Launch Your Inner Entrepreneur, I’m here to help with a few tips:

If becoming a female founder is something that you’ve always dreamed about, this may be your year. Remember, the most critical steps that you can take to make it happen are to formulate your plans and goals, work on shifting your mindset, and then, taking action. 2021 may well be the year of the fempreneur!
