My advice to the female entrepreneur

A short essay, as requested by a student

In my experience, men and women have that same inner voice that says “this is a brilliant idea — the world needs this, and you’re the person to make it a reality.” And men and women both have the talents to create those visions. The difference I see is that women ALSO have that inner voice that says “but make sure you take care of everyone else along the way.” While taking care of others is something we should all do, for women, that so often becomes “put other people’s needs ahead of your own — including your vision.”
