Do you know those women who seem to have a million things going on at once? So do I. I wonder how these women get everything done. Are they superheroes? Debatable. However, they’re more commonly referred to as entrepreneurs. They can juggle one hundred and one different tasks without dropping a single thing. It truly is amazing; one may even call it super human. I believe that being a woman is a super power in itself and this month we celebrate those superwomen entrepreneurs. This month is National Women’s Small Business Month.
To be an entrepreneur takes extraordinary skill. You’ve got to be on top of every small detail that most people would overlook. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing a few women entrepreneurs and I can tell you one thing they’ve all taught me: perseverance. The ability to keep going is probably the most important lesson I’ve learned from these influential women.
As I’m entering the midpoint of my internship here at MEPR Agency, I can honestly say that Kia Jarmon has been pretty super human in my eyes. She never misses a beat. She never half steps. She’s on it; 24/7. From her, I’ve learned to stay on top of my game.
Women entrepreneurs should be celebrated and acknowledged every day. What makes them so amazing is they don’t ask to be recognized. They simply do the work. They do so, not for awards, not for praise but because it’s what they love. It’s who they are.
Message: If you happen to come across a woman entrepreneur, or as I like to call them, girl bosses, salute them. Let them know how awesome they are. Let them know that what they do matters. It matters to me. It matters to all the little girls who pay attention. They see the hard work. They get inspired, they want to be a girl boss. At least that’s what my childhood looked like. I saw women every day who seemed to be busy all the time. I wondered if they ever slowed down. As I grew, I looked up to them. I saw the amount of effort it takes for them to do what they do and I knew then that they were the strongest creatures on Earth.
These extraordinary women are helping to shape this world. They are making history (HERstory) every day. They’re doing it right now as I type this message to you. The future is woman. The rise of woman will be the rise of the nations.
