In previous generations, there existed a cliched mentality in some quarters that a woman’s place was in the home while her husband played the role of breadwinner by going out to work and earn a living for the family. The success of numerous female entrepreneurs on a global scale in recent times should once and for all have buried this misguided notion as a myth.
There is no shortage of case studies to demonstrate how women from all backgrounds have defied narrow-minded stereotypes to build business empires from the ground up and become self-sustaining millionaires in the process. Some have taken the traditional entrepreneurial route of conjuring their own business idea while holding down another job (or multiple jobs, in some cases) and growing this into a globally successful enterprise, while others have branched into the business world after finding fame and accumulating wealth through other vocations.

Obviously, a lot of these might last only a few years or operate to a localized level, but the degree of self-belief and dedication it takes just to get the business off the ground is highly commendable. The pride in backing yourself to take that brave entrepreneurial step should outweigh any disappointment that would come if the venture does not work out as planned.
