We all know about the ‘old boys club’ a mutual society for men in the business. In the same way, female entrepreneurs must boost the sisterhood by making introductions and highlighting their peers’ credentials to key business contacts.

6. Get to the point

Think facts, not feelings. Don’t get distracted.
