They mainly area as some women cannot think like men. To be a successful entrepreneur as a woman, you don't need to be a tom boy as such - but rather to think, behave and act like a man at times. It can feel like survival of the fittest.
Men have a different wiring in regards to the way they think. Many men just see business like they are playing chess (or going to war). Women get emotional involved in business. However there are some women who are great entrepreneurs and their skin has to be at least 10 time tougher than their male counterparts because they do get a bashing from both sides. However, on the whole it is the men that come out at top at the moment!
The nice thing about being in business for one's self is that there is no corporate glass ceiling to break.I think women like that very much.
But! sadly it would seem that men still may just have the handle on it.
Women also don't make as much as men, and it may just all come down to,
men are more aggressive.
Women have been very consistent in the last few years, but they still have some catching up to do.I have a great amount of respect for any woman, who go's out an becomes a entrepreneur and does well for herself.
Perhaps historically men have been the more famous entrepreneurs and certainly male traits lend themselves well to this occupation. That said, the world and lifestyle choices are definitely evolving and of the entrepreneurs that I know, all but 1 are female. Recent years of such an evolution has coined the phrase 'mumpreneurs' representative of all the mothers who are joining the trend of running a business enterprise in addition to family commitments. I note that there is no definition being for dads who do the same (dadpreneur?), so perhaps this recognises that being entrepreneurial is more typically associated with men and no other titles are needed. As the gender and equality gap slowly reduces perhaps we'll see more powerful women emerging in this business arena.
I am not sure what the statistics are, but I am finding that most of my new clients are women, which makes me think it's pretty equal between men and women.
Well more men are in the media with Donald Trump and Richard Branson. However I think there are many women entrepreneurs that may not have made the "famous" media and are very successful. Just need to look out for them!
These days anybody with a vision and some determination can go out and create a life for themselves. Men and women can and have made it, it just takes dedication and hard work and those who are willing to do it reap the rewards regardless of gender.
