5 Amazing Quotes From Business Women

Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging. It’s being all in. – Brené Brown

It’s a common belief in business that you have to show no weakness in order to get ahead. In my opinion, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Being vulnerable in business is necessary as it allows you to connect with your audience in a real way. Showing vulnerability lets your audience see the highs and lows, wins and losses, and reality behind your business. This authenticity is relatable, making vulnerability essential in business.

Meet life as it shows up—not as you prefer it to show up. – Marie Forleo

Life very rarely goes according to plan. When things take an unexpected turn you have a choice to make, either fight it or go with it. It’s exactly the same in business. There will always be bumps in the road, detours in your five-year plan, and massive curveballs you never saw coming. Accept these as opportunities rather than obstacles and you will be amazed at how they can end up being the best thing that ever happened to you and your business.

It is not ‘what’ you do that makes the difference; it is the ‘why’ that puts a spring in your step, a smile on your face, and gives you a sense of fulfilment. It is the ‘how’ that makes a difference to others. – Naomi Simson 

Everyone who runs their own business has a ‘why’ that motivates them. For many of us working mums, our ‘why’ is our kids. Don’t get me wrong, my kids are a massive part of my ‘why’ and I wouldn’t have it any other way, but they aren’t my only ‘why’. It’s important to also do it for yourself because that passion straight from the source is what will truly make a difference in people’s lives.

Fearlessness is like a muscle. I know from my own life that the more I exercise it the more natural it becomes to not let my fears run me. –Arianna Huffington

Practice makes perfect, and just like everything else in life, it takes practice to be fearless. Taking risks and making big moves in your small business can be terrifying, but these steps are what will help your business grow. Just know that with every scary step you take, it makes the next one so much easier.

Done is better than perfect. – Sheryl Sandberg

Finally, one of the most important things for all small business owners to know is that done is better than perfect. So many of us refuse to take a step that will vastly benefit our businesses until everything is perfect. The thing is, it never will be. Life is messy, and your business is a part of life. Put yourself and your brand out there, because it doesn’t matter how perfect something is if nobody ever sees it.
