- Being a female entrepreneur is just like being a male entrepreneur, with a few tweaks.

- You need to pick yourself up daily and pursue your dreams and not let them be buried under the rubble of pregnancies, recoveries, weaning, child care, family meals, homework, house work and so on.
- Your dreams are valid.
- If you’re not passionate about it, don’t bother.

Focus and take their dreams even more seriously, fight to keep following those dreams and be business-like in all their dealings.
