Many say that while women are slowly but surely climbing the ladders of modern, men-ruled business world, there’s still lot to achieve in this field. NatWest Everywoman Awards’ spokesperson Emma Jarman says that the gap is gradually closing as more and more women are getting their feet wet in the entrepreneurial world of today. Many barriers holding women back are long gone, and women are more likely to get the financing they need to make their business grow, yet they still lack the same mentoring received by their male peers.
Studies show that women are more likely to succeed in their endeavors and that they’re able to build longer lasting networks of people and acquaintances than men, so they’ll have a better safety net around them in the case of a fallback. It is often said that a dollar invested into a business venture represented by a woman is a wiser investment that that into a male run business, as many women already excel in the field of business on a large scale.
With the younger generation the amount of women, driven by the financial security and freedom that comes with growing business, keeps rising as many want to be their own bosses and make their own career. More mature women look for a more stable forms of income, and are more likely to settle into something that doesn’t require a risk or an investment, even if that means that their income will stay low. But then again in the age bracket of 50+, women tend to start looking for a new challenges and the financial side of things gets more left out due to having paid their life until the end in the form of mortgages – or just wanting to show the world that they can actually run a successful business!
