If you look at women who are achieving great things, you will find they have a few traits in common.  When you can cultivate and recognize these traits in yourself, you’re equipped with the understanding of what it takes to get to the next level. Today, I want to shine some light on three traits of successful women entrepreneurs.

Successful Women Entrepreneurs are Passionate

Why is it important to be passionate? You can have all the skills, experience, and knowledge, but if you are not excited about what you’re doing, if you don’t love it, then that’s going to be hard to push yourself on to the next level.

The thing is, passionate people bring contagious energy into their space. It’s the kind of stuff people want to be around. If you bring passion and energy into your work, people will want to be around you. They’re going to join your audience because your energy makes them feel good.

Loving what you do gives you the necessary means to challenge yourself, and it brings joy to every moment of your journey.

Successful Women Entrepreneurs are NOT Perfectionists

Embrace imperfection. Gone are the days of trying to be perfect, and it’s refreshing. I don’t know about you, but if I’m scrolling along, and I see an imperfect Instagram feed, it catches my eye. If somebody shows up online to share a message with no regard for perfect hair and makeup, Fuck, that’s refreshing.

It is so good to embrace your authenticity. Stop spending unnecessary time and energy on making sure everything is perfect. People can see through that. Find joy in your imperfection, stumble on your words, post the blog with incorrect grammar, or write the first draft of your book.

You’re going to get better. Keep your head up and be the best that you can be. Just put it out there and move on. Find people who complement your mission in life. Successful women entrepreneurs know that it’s not possible to be perfect all the time, and they embrace that.

Successful Women Entrepreneurs Express Gratitude

The final trait of successful women is my favorite one. It’s inspiring to see women showing gratitude to their audiences, and the best ones do it all the time. They thank the people who are in their corner, acknowledging that they’re not doing this alone.

Every successful female entrepreneur has support from mentors, family, colleagues, and friends. By expressing gratitude to their people, they remind you to do the same for the people in your life. Putting gratitude down on paper creates so much positive energy.

Spotlighting your support system every day, whether it be in your gratitude journal, or on a post, or in a shout out video, is so important! The most successful women entrepreneurs express gratitude all the time. In return, they are welcoming kindness and respect and admiration.

People look up to those who express gratitude because they are a beacon of positivity. People want to be around that. Passion, imperfection, and gratitude are the traits I witness in most of the women entrepreneurs that inspire me. Now that I’ve highlighted those three traits, you’re going to see them in the people that you follow as well.
