As a successful woman in business, what advice would you give to aspiring female entrepreneurs?

We are facing some of the most complex challenges the human race has seen. It will take all of us to make a real difference in creating a future that is better than the present.


The world is full of opportunity. It is full of problems to be solved that make life better for people.  Many of these problems are commonplace meaning solutions are scalable.


Too often businesses lose their “why”, their raison d’etre, and focus on profit. Always remember your purpose or reason for going into business. Focus on solving a problem, people (customers and staff) and possibility; the profit will come.

Being in business allows flexibility in the clients you chose to work with, the type of work you focus on and how you spend your time. It is one of the most empowering things you can do, as once you know you can create your own success, nothing can stop you.

In the words of Nike “Just do it”. Don’t over-think it.
