While the number of women-owned firms continues to grow at twice the rate of all U.S. firms, women report that self-promotion remains one of the most challenging endeavors.
Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Are you an entrepreneurial woman longing for a breakthrough? You’re not alone.
“It’s all too common for entrepreneurial women to resist promoting themselves and their businesses. When asked why, many say they don’t want to appear selfish, self-serving, or “sales-y,” according to Krista Carnes, marketing specialist and founder of Booking Authors. While the number of women-owned firms continues to grow at twice the rate of all U.S. firms, women report that self-promotion remains one of the most challenging endeavors.
The result? Many entrepreneurial women struggle to find ideal clients and customers, make sufficient money, or feel satisfied in their lives and work. In short, they need a Prosperity Marketing Mindset® - an empowered system of beliefs and actions that foster meaningful and authentic connection. With a prosperity mindset, every communication can build supportive relationships, attract great clients/customers, and create new opportunities to help others while you grow your business profitably.
