    Traditionally, women have not fared as well as men in the workplace, with most women earning just three-quarters of what their male counterparts make. But, for the last 20 years, more women have started their own businesses than ever before. More and more women are seeing self-employment as an attractive career option and are choosing to set up their own businesses.
    As well as providing an opportunity to create a challenging and rewarding career and develop financial independence, running a business means developing new skills across a range of different disciplines. Moreover, you also have to deal with finance, marketing, administration, legal issues and other specific areas.
    Successful female entrepreneurs often have particular personal characteristics as well as business skills. They seem to have good problem-solving skills and are highly creative, energetic, tenacious and not afraid to take risks.
    Questions to ponder:
    1. Do or did you have a woman leader as a mentor or are there specific women who inspired you and why?
    2. What are some patterns you’ve noticed over the years about women at work, and things they could be doing better to advance their careers?
    3. What has been the most significant barrier when females do business? Have you been confronted with gender-related roadblocks in your career?
    4. How do you think companies would benefit from having more women at the top?
    5. If you are a woman, do you want to have your own business. Why? If you are a man, do you want your partner (wife, lover) to do their own business? Why?

    Enjoy and have a fruitful discussion!
