Women Entrepreneurs: Multi-task Your Way to Success
A woman’s skill at multi-tasking could be the key to her success as an entrepreneur, or so believes Kevin O’Leary, an investor from the popular TV show “Shark Tank.” That’s likely not news to most female small business owners but hearing it from an influential investor like “Mr. Wonderful” might prick up a few ears in the investing world.
Mr. O’Leary has invested in 27 small businesses in multiple sectors. Over half are run by women, and only his women-led businesses are making money. According to a recent article, he asked one CEO why she thought the companies led by women were doing better.
“She said to me, ‘You know, if you want to get something done, give it to a busy mom,'” he recalled. “It kind of makes sense, right?”
He then added, “One thing’s for sure: We should be elevating women to the CEO position because we’re getting better returns,” he said. “You don’t need another reason in business. In my case, the numbers speak for themselves.”
So, female small business owners, keep on multi-tasking your way to success!
