Ambitious, Educated Women: This is YOUR Time
I have some very good news.
If you’re an ambitious, working-age woman in a developing or emerging economy – Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East – there has NEVER been a better time in history to be you. This is your time.
Here’s why: “Four forces are working together to create this extraordinary and unprecedented time for you.
- You have an education. If you are a college graduate, you have a higher level of education than many women in your country have ever had.
- You are needed. Companies, markets, your country, and the world economy have a significant need for educated, skilled and motivated entrepreneurs and employees.
- You have new opportunities. Growth, technology, and innovation are disrupting traditional business models and people everywhere are rejecting the status quo. These disruptions are creating many opportunities for you to act on.
- You believe in yourself. The most powerful force of all is your belief in your own capabilities. Women today can participate at any level of business. We also know that we can have both careers and full home lives if we want them. We can design our careers and our lifestyles in the ways that makes us feel the most fulfilled.”
– UNDETERRED: The Six Success Habits of Women in Emerging Economies, p. 4
In his seminal book, Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell adds to our understanding about a person’s success, the importance of a person’s culture, location and time in history. In the book, he repeatedly shows how where a person lives, when they are born and who they surround themselves with has a profound effect on how successful they ultimately are.
I believe that this is that moment in time for working-age women from emerging economies. There will never be a better time than this for you to fully participate and prosper in a career or business of your choosing. New jobs are being created every day. You can create your own job and grow a business that creates many more jobs. At this moment in time, the opportunities available to you are unprecedented. All that is needed is that you take advantage of them.
There will never be a better time than this for you to fully participate and prosper in a career or business of your choosing.
In my new book UNDETERRED, I show you how women just like you are creating and leveraging opportunities in 29 different countries. You can also read the chapter for free when you sign up with your email here.
Don’t miss out on this unprecedented moment in time. Now is your time, but the next move is yours. Take your place in the rising global economy!
