Melina Druga interviewed nearly 100 female entrepreneurs and asked them several career defining questions including the one people don’t talk about: Did you struggle when starting your business?
The businesswomen did not disappoint, speaking candidly about failure as well as success, self doubt and what the process of launching a business taught them.
Despite coming from various walks of life and different regions of the world, the women experienced similar struggles and learned comparable lessons.
In addition, the majority were mothers, some even grandmothers, who needed to strike a balance between business and family, and most did not start their professional careers with the intent of becoming small-business owners.
