What do you wish someone had told you when you were first starting out in business? “As they say, ‘My mother never told me there would be days like these.’ Every day, I read about, speak to and hear from women interested in going into entrepreneurship or creating their own future for flexibility. While you have options for what you want to do, the culture you want to create and the business you want to be in, starting a business is not for the faint of heart or those with limited energy. We should tell every woman some hard truths: It is hard, back-breaking, endless work. It is also rewarding, challenging, inspiring, exciting, terrifying, energizing and enervating. Be prepared for the whole range of experiences and responses, not just the victories.”
