Did you know that businesses founded by women show significantly better financial returns, more than twice as much per dollar invested, than those that are male-led?
Yet, only 34% of businesses in Australia are owned and operated by women. Why is this the case? The short answer is – the Confidence Gap.
Do you consider yourself a risk-taker? I hope your answer is yes! Taking risks is a part of life and being able to make major decisions is pivotal for any business owner.
However, if you aren’t afraid to take big risks, you’re one of the few women who actually consider themselves to be risk-takers. It’s sad but true. Women take fewer risks than men do in business. However, while women don’t tend to take traditional risks, I have no doubt that women are, and can be, fabulous risk-takers.
