It's also important to build a strong team and create a positive company culture that values diversity, inclusivity, and collaboration, which has been my priority since Dreamtime Learning was formed.
Additionally, networking and seeking mentorship from other successful women can be incredibly beneficial in navigating the business world. Finally, learning and adapting as the business grows and evolves continually is essential. By considering these aspects, women can successfully start and lead businesses that make a meaningful impact on society and the community.
