“Growth can only be found at the edge of comfort. It is at this boundary that you learn fast, experiment, create, innovate and evolve. By design, it breaks you out of your mould and challenges you, but here you’ll find opportunities you never dreamed possible.
I could have never planned to be the founder I am today. There’s no secret formula, just start backing yourself.” – Natalie Doran, CEO, Lytehouse
“My advice to women thinking about becoming an entrepreneur is simply that ‘you can do it’. Most of us never actually hear those words out loud- we are more likely to have detractors and doubters, both growing up and in the work place. So in case no-one ever said it to you before, I’ll say it now. You can do it. And it doesn’t matter if you haven’t done it before, you can figure it out. You got this.” – Hazel Savage, CEO, Musiio
“Never underestimate the power of grit, determination and perseverance.
There’s a perception that many founders come from a privileged background. It wasn’t handed to me on a plate. My parents were first generation immigrants trying to make it in, and I was put through my paces in tough corners of the US public school system. I believe working hard and building relationships allows you to always learn and move forward.
Explore passions but be open-minded.” – Zeena Qureshi, CEO, Sonantic
