Women have always been enterprising and great multitaskers but sometimes due to family restrictions or constraints their talent goes unnoticed. Also, not women want to come out of their “comfort zone.”
Times are changing though! In the last few years I have come across unbelievable number of women who are breaking all the barriers and taking risks. Some women have left their cushy, well-paying corporate jobs to try out new ventures, risk venturing in start-ups. There are innumerable women who felt suffocated in their monotonous jobs and hence decided to be entrepreneurs. There are homemakers who want to take risks and do something productive. Daily I read and come across women who are itching to do something creative, carve a niche for themselves. These women don’t want to compromise on their children’s upbringing yet want to explore new zones.
Women who as girls had dreams and which remained unfulfilled want to tap their hidden potential. It is not easy at all, juggling home, kids, and their dreams.
It is big risk and a tough journey. Any new venture, start-up is a big risk! It might work, it might not! It takes loads of patience, perseverance, and a lot of faith in self to keep things going. Its a struggle of few years and eventually it works! I have seen so many women start from the scratch and then succeed within a span of few years.
There are women who are working as entrepreneurs, tutors, writers, bloggers, home chefs, travel experts, beauticians, etc., etc.
So, what keeps these strong women going? Its the desire to follow their passion that keeps the fire within burning. Its the desire to fulfill their dreams that gives them motivation. I am myself in a dilemma sometimes whether I should go back to a full-time, decently paying job or keep writing, which is my passion! I know its not easy to carve a niche so easily!
There are days when I have doubts but the examples of all these wonderful women keep me motivated.
Way to go ladies..
