First though, as I always do each birthday, some self-reflection:
I recently learned what kind of entreprenuer I am: A Tenacity Jane.
Here'e what that means:
Roughly one in three women entrepreneurs is the type Tenacity Jane.
As a Tenacity Jane¸ you may be struggling with cash flow or other concerns in your business right now, but your passion is undeniable. You believe in what you are building and are working hard to help it turn the corner. As a result, you may be feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or worried -- specifically when it comes to business finances and cash flow.
You may also be working more than you care to right now, but you're determined to do what you need to do to make your business a success. It's important to realize you're not alone, because Tenacity Jane is the most common of the five types. Equally important, the challenges you are facing right now can be overcome. Many of the women we've interviewed have told us that they've been a Tenacity Jane in the past, but ultimately they brought their dreams to reality and created highly profitable businesses.
Well, that sums it up a bit - but I feel like I'm moving out of that stage and into another Jane stage, which they say can happen. What kind of Jane are you? Go here to find out: Jane Out of the Box.
