Women Business Owners Need to Think Bigger

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on Women Business Owners Need to Think Bigger

If you’re a woman business owner who is trying to raise capital, Carol suggests that you think bigger.

In “3 Fundraising Tips for Women Entrepreneurs to Raise Capital,” Carol’s recent post on the Bank of America Small Business Community, she shares why women can miss out on opportunities by being too conservative in their projections and not investing in a great team.

Hey it’s Carol Roth, and Bank of America just came out with their 2018 Bank of America Women Business Owner Spotlight. It is chock-full of amazing information about the state of women business owners. And the great news is that women business owners are very optimistic right now about everything from the state of the economy to growth in their own businesses.

But the one area where women are still struggling is the area of raising capital. So I’m here to give you a couple of tips that will help make raising capital even easier for you. So if you’re a woman business owner or if you happen to know one – listen up.

The first tip is for you to think bigger. I don’t know why it is, but women tend to be more conservative, particularly as business owners – that means everything from the scope of their business to their projections. And having this conservative attitude does not jive well with investors who really want you to be going and scaling the business. So make sure that you’re presenting that front – that you’re somebody who is up for a bigger task.
