It’s a fact: women-owned and women-led businesses perform better. And that’s why going global is such an appealing avenue of growth for women entrepreneurs and business owners.
Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary says:
O’Leary speculated that the women’s outperformance is due to more effective time-management skills and an aptitude for setting achievable quarterly goals. The women-run firms in his 44-company portfolio reach their goals 90% of the time, compared to 65% for men-run firms, he says. He believes these strengths lead to higher employee morale and better results.
Other strong possibilities on why women entrepreneurs perform better beyond pushing boundaries:
- Smarter decision-making that follows from more diversity of thought; women challenge stale ways of thinking, re-examine facts, generate more innovation and sharpen performance.
- Greater efficiency with money.
- Taking more carefully calculated risks (forget the myth that women are risk-adverse!).
