#1 – The Passionate One – Passion is one of the most effective motivators when it comes to your business and your work – surround yourself with people who understand your visions, keep that fire in your belly, drive you forward and support your business journey through the ups and downs.

#2 – The Experienced One – Tips and tricks! When you’re staring at an enormous obstacle, this woman can help you see what’s possible, especially as a fellow female entrepreneur. Someone in your life who could also act as a mentor as you make your own way. Since women face unique challenges in business, it is critical to have this experienced entrepreneur on your side guiding you along the way and giving you that little help in hand when you need it.

#3 – The Networker – We all know the phrase ‘It’s not just what you know, but who you know’ A social butterfly in your life will help you expand your circle in ways you never imagined. This woman could give you the “in” needed to shatter the glass ceiling or enter a business opportunity that seemed slightly unreachable from your own network.

⁠#4 – The Industry One – Trying to talk business with someone who doesn’t understand your industry can feel like you’re interpreting a foreign language. Having a friend within your industry who understands the jargon and gets the ins and outs of your business world is always great. It’s a good way to keep each other up-to-date on insights you might have missed and staying ahead.

#5 – The Local Liaison – Reach out to a fellow female entrepreneur in your area and get out of the office! Connecting in real life over a coffee or glass of wine is always great for female entrepreneurs. Plus, in our global economy, having a local business friend is invaluable, especially when 90 percent of the interaction you might get in a day is through email.
