  • 1. Welcome to Virtus Social Media
  • 2. Women Entrepreneurs
    The challenges that they face and how to overcome
    Presented By:
    Virtus Social Media
  • 3. Entrepreneurship – Think about it!
    “Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your life like most people won't, so that you can spend the rest of your life like most people can't.”
    Struggle is an inevitable part of an entrepreneur’s journey. That is why venture capitalists have coined the term “sweat equity”- the ownership that comes with the sweat of your eyebrows.
    For a woman, there could be several challenges hindering her way up the business ladder – Can you name a few?
    As an entrepreneur, you will realize that there
    would be no less stones and boulders blocking your path!
  • 4. Why To Be An Entrepreneur
    There are an estimated 6.7 billion people
    on our planet.
    1/3 rd of the huge population live in India and China.
    There are over 462 million people below the age of 15 who will want a job soon.
    Entrepreneurs create jobs – provide people with livelihood. Without a livelihood, everyone would be living a direction-less life.
  • 5. Are You Ready For It
    Check if these are your reasons for starting
    a business, you might want to think again!
    • “My job sucks. I will start my own business!”
    • 6. “Time is running out! I need to do something, probably my own business!”
    • 7. “I have a great group of friends and we have a lovely idea; let’s start a business!”
    NO, these are not ample reasons to dive in.
    “Building a company is not like planning one giant tree; It is about creating an entire forest someday.” – SubrataBagchi

  • 9. Oseola McCarty
    Oseola McCartywas a local washerwoman in Hattiesburg, Mississippi who is known for being the most famous benefactor of The University of Southern Mississippi.
    McCarty’s great deeds came into limelight after it was announced in July 1995 that she had established a trust through which, at her death, a portion of her life’s savings would be left to the university to provide scholarships for deserving students in need of financial assistance. The amount was estimated at $150,000, a surprising amount given her menial occupation.
    Her story inspires everyone to learn the simple qualities of leadership. Entrepreneurship is not about starting a new business, it is about creating a legacy and an instance for others to follow. She created such wealth amidst the toughest of situations, for the benefit of the following generation.

  • 13. You couldbe the next!Ask yourself a few questions:
    Did you take important decisions in your
    life or did someone else decide for you?
    Did your enjoy it irrespective of the outcome?
    Can you make friends with a stranger?
    Are you comfortable talking about yourself?

  • 14. And Finally…
    Did you actually go through a presentation or listen to someone’s experience before you fell in love? A romantic book might have helped in some way, but your decision did not depend on the book’s content. No amount of discussion would help you know ‘love’ more than your falling in it!
    My tips can help you get an idea before you start your own venture, but the actual experience is on enactment. So go, and just do it!
