4 Challenges to Anticipate as a Successful Business Woman.

Funding.

Due to bias and other factors (we'll get to them below), women simply don't receive as much support when starting businesses as men do. Given that businesses are costly endeavors, funding is essential for getting one off the ground. It's a tough pill to swallow, but looking to your network, as well as groups that specifically support businesswomen, can help. The MadamèCEO - 1000 Businesswomen Campain is one example. This angel mentorship program specifically backs female entrepreneurs. 

Bias.

Despite the strides women have made across industries, they still face gender bias. No matter how successful you are or how many accomplishments you have under your belt, there will always be people who think women can't be entrepreneurs. Overcoming this often needs to come from yourself, but it can also help to seek out like-minded people, such as meetup groups and networks of female entrepreneurs and businesswomen (MadamèCEO community is a great place to start!).

Support.

Many people who "fail" in business do so because they lack the necessary support. In order to combat this, it's important to seek out mentors like MadamèCEO to help you grow professionally. Look within your own company, but go further, reaching out to people you admire on LinkedIn and using your network to meet new people who are successful leaders in your industry. 

Lack of confidence.

We touched on this above, but it bears repeating: a lack of confidence can kill your idea before it even starts. This is, unfortunately, a big problem among women especially. You need to project confidence in order to tackle the many obstacles you'll face. As with several of the other challenges, finding like-minded businesswomen and mentors is one way to help you boost your sense of self-worth. You also need to consciously make an effort to work on it, perhaps in therapy or simply learning to argue with your negative self-talk.
