GIRL BOSS

EMPOWERING GIRLS

TO START BUSINESSES

Who me? No, I could

never run my own

business!

If you think you’re the only one who

struggles with self-doubt and selfconsciousness,

and that this means

you could never make a success of

your ideas, you are 100% wrong.

Women at all levels are plagued by

their inner critic and the voices that

say, you can’t do this, you’re an idiot,

you’ll look stupid. The difference

between those that go after success

in life, and those who settle for

less than their potential, is not the

absence of fear, it’s the decision to

feel the fear and do it anyway.

Do What You Love

Is there something you’re really

good at, and which you love, but

which you don’t think you could do

as a real job? Perhaps you’d love to

organise events or help people get

healthy? Maybe you want to make

a living from your creative work?

Are you good with computers?

Do you dream of working with

kids or animals? What about your

community – can you see a need

that isn’t being met, a way to make

a difference, an opportunity to help

people? You can create a business

out of what you love - there are

enough examples out there to

demonstrate that you can make a

living out of virtually anything, if

you’re smart about it and prepared to

work for it.

A World of Opportunity

The internet makes it possible to

reach an ever wider audience, so

that here in South West Wales we

are not limited by our location.

There really are no barriers to what

you can achieve, other than your

own limiting beliefs. The truth,

although it’s sometimes hard to

believe around here, is that there's

an abundance of wealth out there,

and plenty of people with money

to spend. Believing this is the first

step. Figuring out how to reach

them – that comes later.

Time is Precious

Money isn’t the scarce resource –

it’s Time that is truly precious. We

spend our time every day, year in

and year out, and yet we can never

earn it back. Your time is precious,

so you owe it to yourself not to put

your dreams on hold, waiting for the

perfect time: that time is now.
