Happy Global Entrepreneurship Week #GEWMakeIt

Today marks the start of Global Entrepreneurship Week where all over the world people will be holding and attending events around business ownership.  It's always a big week at The Women's Organisation, so in case you missed it, click here for a list of the events we are putting on to celebrate.





And just to give you a bit of extra inspiration beyond our events, here are some inspirational quotes from brilliant entrepreneurial women to spur you on this week:


“I have never worked a day in my life without selling. If I believe in something, I sell it, and I sell it hard.” — Estée Lauder



“I don’t believe in failure. It’s not failure if you enjoyed the process.” — Oprah Winfrey


“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes—understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.” — Arianna Huffington


“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” -- Helen Keller, author



“Presenting leadership as a list of carefully defined qualities (like strategic, analytical and performance-oriented) no longer holds. Instead, true leadership stems from individuality that is honestly and sometimes imperfectly expressed… Leaders should strive for authenticity over perfection.” -- Sheryl Sandberg, COO Facebook


“Don’t be intimidated by what you don’t know. That can be your greatest strength and ensure that you do things differently from everyone else.” -- Sara Blakely, Spanx

“You have to look at leadership through the eyes of the followers and you have to live the message. What I have learned is that people become motivated when you guide them to the source of their own power and when you make heroes out of employees who personify what you want to see in the organization.” -- Anita Roddick, businesswoman
