How Female Entrepreneurs are Different

 

 ~by Haley Lynn Gray~ 

 

Women Entrepreneurs are Different

People who get out there and make their own business from scratch are called Entrepreneurs and they can be male or female. However, male and female entrepreneurs do things very differently when it comes time to run a business.

Female entrepreneurs tend to be more sensitive to the clients’ needs and her employees’ needs than a male entrepreneur will. Female entrepreneurs want to make sure their employees are taken care of so they do not have a high turnover among workers. Not only do they want to take care of their workers, but they will ensure their clients are satisfied and happy with the service they are receiving so they do not lose clients from poor service.

Not only will female entrepreneurs make sure their clients and employees are happy, but they are hard workers because they have to prove they can do the job just a like a male can do it. They feel they have to prove they are capable of the work and handling the business they are in.

Female entrepreneurs are generally more serious, more likely to seek and listen to advice, and are better at dealing with people than most male entrepreneurs are.

Male entrepreneurs are more interested in the growth of the business and the money side of things because they want to make a lot of money and make it quick. Males are more interested in the business side of the business rather than being there for the people that help run the business, such as the employees. They will also be very interested in getting new clients. However, they will not take as good care of these clients as the females will.

Both men and women have strengths and weakness when it comes to running a business, however, they both can do the job and get it done. Women tend to be there for her employees and clients more then men and men tend to want to make more money and not worry about their employee’s happiness. Both men and women have to build off of their strengths and learn from the weakness to make the business last and keep on working for a long time to come.

Women have the strength of wanting to talk and deal with the people but they need more help on the business and money side of things so they are willing to ask for advice. This does not make them bad entrepreneurs; however, it makes them very good at what they do.

    Female entrepreneurs are definitely different from their male counterparts on many, many levels.

    I think it’s true that the female entrepreneurs can definitely be extra sensitive to what a client feels or needs. However, that’s certainly not to discount the instincts of men, of course. I’ve met plenty of men who are very intuitive. But I think that what you said about women tending to be more open to seeking help and advice from other people than men do is dead on. There is a reason there for the stereotype of men not wanting to ask for directions.

      Thanks for your comment Agnes… It’s good to recognize and embrace our differences. If we have shortcomings, then we know what we need to work on.

Please let us know what you think!
