Four Quick and Crucial Tips for Women Entrepreneurs:
- Use the art of inquiry. Do not go in as a know-it-all. Ask questions. Form relationships- -it’s what women do naturally.
- Find the influencers. There are certain people that others listen to. Find those people and cultivate those people.
- WIIFM– “What’s In It For Me?” We all are motivated by something that is for us. If you need something, talk to your influencers and find out what they need and help them get that. Once you offer to help them, when you let them know what you need, they will be more likely to help.
- Ask for help. This opens doors. When you allow yourself to be vulnerable and take yourself off the pedestal, people are more likely to want to help you.
