Have you heard the big news? WOMEN ARE BETTER AT BUSINESS THAN MEN! Before you start asking why, let’s start with the elephant in the room: there are actually more male entrepreneurs than females worldwide. The obvious reason is that women until recently did not or could not object the role the society has expected them to play and thus spent most of their time raising children, taking care for the home, while leaving the ruthless business development arena to men. However, with greater access to education, the redefinition of roles in society and girls and women finally daring to break the chains and reach their full potential, which has no limits. Let’s get back to business. It’s an arena where RISK TAKING IS PART OF THE PROCESS and according to studies men are more inclined to take risks when compared to women. However, in business, IT IS ALSO ABOUT INTUITION AND LUCK. Men lack intuition, especially when they are young or until they really connect with their inner self. You don’t believe it...talk to men in the situations where they have to make a decision, any decision...they have this gut feeling, but they ALWAYS NEED JUST ONE MORE CLUE to act. This is why they keep banging their heads into walls. And it hurts. It’s not a coincidence that most economic crises in the history arisen due to men taking too much risk, being too greedy, and protecting their egos. We can only wonder what would happen if they would listen to their INTUITION, A TRAIT THAT MAKES WOMEN TO THRIVE IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 75% of businesses are male-owned. With such a high number of men involved, it’s easy to assume they are also more successful. But is it true? In absolute number, they just might be, but our analysis reveals that they lag behind their woman peers in terms of revenues, job creation, employee satisfaction. In addition, women have proven to be more effective leaders, and tend to have a larger appetite for growth, not just in terms of revenue and market share, but in a much wider definition of growth which includes other metrics (job satisfaction, transparency, equal opportunities, inclusivity, development of human resources).
A study done in 2017 by Fidelity Investments found that women earn higher returns on their investments and save more than their male counterparts. Women earn higher returns on their investments than their male counterparts by about 0.4 percent. This number may seem small at first, but can have a “significant impact” over time, the study says. Now, if you, women, want to boost yourself and claim leadership, you might need some preparations and tools to navigate through the madness of life.
