Sháá Wasmund: why I love being a woman in business

In celebration of yesterday being 'International Womens Day' I wanted to share with you all the reasons why I love being a woman in business:

  • I'm my own boss. I have no one else, other than those I trust and respect telling me what to do.
  • I get to put my son to bed nearly every night - even if I do work for 3 hours afterwards.
  • I am responsible for making my dreams a reality.
  • I am able to work with lots of supremely talented women (and men!).
  • I am frequently asked to address conferences to talk about social media, starting a business, running a business and being a woman in business. As you know, I love to talk!
  • I wake up every day looking forward to going to 'work', no matter how challenging the day might be. How can that be called 'work'?
  • I love being able to make a small difference, even in just one person's life. For me, that's what it's all about.
  • I am constantly inspired by the women I meet who are running their own businesses and juggling families too. There is no doubt that women are the ultimate multi-taskers.
  • I see no ceiling strong enough to hold me down.
  • And finally, I love all the men who have supported me along the way - and there have been many of you. Chris Eubank, Barry Hearn, Sir Bob Geldof, James Dyson, Nick Davis, Justin Randall, Dan Wagner, Theo Paphitis, Tosh and of course Pops AKA Sir Richard Needham. Thankyou.
