Celebrating Women’s Day with top tips for budding female entrepreneurs.


International Women’s Day is on March 8th, 2020. How will you be celebrating? In honor of this day, we’ve decided to focus on female business owners, especially those who are starting out. It can be daunting to start a business as a woman especially in what feels like a man’s world. That’s why we’ve rounded up some great tips for female entrepreneurs this International Women’s Day!


Don’t try to be all things to all people. When you’re a new business starting out, it can be tempting to accept every client/offer that’s presented to you. However, before you do, you should ask yourself if each project is going to help you get towards your goal. Does it align with your core focus? Having a focus will help you attract more of the business you really enjoy doing.


Tend to relationships

Any business owner, female or not, will soon realize that relationships are key. Connections can be made anywhere from the grocery store to your kid’s school, to a Facebook comment. Leverage your local community by getting involved. This will help to put your name and business out there. You should also connect with other female business owners for support – you never know how important your connections can be.


Find a balance

Women are often burdened with the task of taking care of the household duties and kids – all while working. While this may be doable in a full-time job, running your own business requires more hours. Longer days can take a toll on your family, so be sure to find a balance that suits everyone.


To help protect your hard work and new business, be sure to secure the right commercial insurance coverage. Have questions regarding your business insurance? Talk to the professionals at Unisource Insurance Associates to get started on your tailored policy today!
