For decades, women have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for permission to implement their goals, ideas, dreams, and visions but not anymore. Women are now capitalizing on the most important elements of entrepreneurship, which are a willingness to take a risk, intentionally meeting the needs of humanity, and long-term productivity. Women have always innately been capable of producing. We were created to produce, nurture, cultivate, and bring things into maturation. Currently, there are more than 11.6 million businesses owned by women, employing close to 9 million people, and generating $1.7 trillion in sales since 2017. These numbers and percentages are consistently elevating each year. Nevertheless, most importantly as women we have finally come to terms with who we are and have allowed our distinct differences to work in our favor. So often, we have allowed society, tradition, and religion to categorize us or even cause us to perpetuate attributes of our male counterparts. One example to use is the term entrepreneur. An entrepreneur is the male version of a business owner, but entrepreneuse is the female version of a business owner. Preneur is male and Preneuse is female. The detailed and distinct qualities of who we are should be embraced and not abandoned. After learning the difference, I as a female nonprofit, faith based business owner have taken great pleasure in embracing my differences and not being a coward about being a Female. I additionally started a movement called iPreneuse™ to bring awareness to just how important we are to the economic society, worldly production, global consumption, and consistent transferring of wealth. These things are not just for one group, category, or people. Women can and will continue to contribute and retain in the grand scheme of economics.
