Learning from the best

Learning from the best

Following on from Black History Month, I just wanted to draw together some of the take-home tips for business success I was able to gather together from the leading lights of the current wave of Black businesswoman entrepreneurs and educators:

Be led by your passions and what interests you

“I got to where I am today because I’ve always been interested in technology and saw a problem within the industry and wanted to solve it.” — Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, founder of social enterprise Stemettes

Celebrate the small wins

“Celebrate every win regardless of how small it may seem. Small victories compound into big progress.” — Yvonne Bajela, founder of Impact X Capital

Adopt a growth mindset

“Having a growth mindset is so important to achieving your goals.” — Kike Oniwinde, founder of the BYP Network

Create a clear vision

“Vision is the guide that directs all successful leaders. You should be able to come out with a vision and plan on a roadmap to success in any organization you want to lead.” — Bianca Miller-Cole, founder of the Be Group

Get out of your own way

I firmly believe that we all have the power to do so many different things. We just need to give ourselves permission, and get out of our own way.” — June Angelides, founder of Mums In Tech and co-founder of Female Founders Online
