We can always learn from each other, here are The Business Rules Men Don’t Share with Women.
1. Don’t put yourself down
Men are always talking themselves into deals, while women talk themselves out of deals. So you have to talk yourself up because you have so much to shout about!
2. No cold calls, please
Always get someone else to boost your credentials first before you ask for money. Men lay a base for each other so should we.
3. Support the sisterhood
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.
4. Stop the ‘but’ word
‘But’ is probably one of the worst words in the English language. If you think about it, once you say ‘but’ all that anyone will remember is what comes after it…
5. Know your ###
Nothing is worse than not knowing your numbers. You also need to know everything that there is to know about your competitors.
6. Get to the point
Think facts, not feelings. Don’t get distracted.
