In Albania, it is difficult for a woman to enter the business world. However, do not get demotivated, you can do it! Let me share with you some insight on how to be a successful businesswoman.

Authenticity is attractive. Be clear on who you are and what you want from your professional and personal life. Authenticity is about living in the moment with conviction and confidence and staying true to yourself.

“No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.”

Eleanor Roosevelt

Celebrate your successes. Always remember to celebrate your successes and don’t sweat over the little things, just let it go and move on to the next challenge. We spend a lot of our time obsessing about the future. Yet, when you reach a significant goal, celebrate your win rather than immediately moving onto the next big thing. When you don’t take the time to celebrate your many accomplishments, soon you will not find meaning in what you are doing.

“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” 

Madeleine Albright

Draw your own line on. Make sure that every day you prioritise the tasks that really need to get done and then leave the office with confidence, knowing that you can spend time with family and friends while balancing life and work.

“Do less, be more.”

Elizabeth Grace Saunders

Dream big, create your own opportunities. Your dreams won’t simply come true on their own; you will have to reach for them. You’re in charge of your own career. Listen to your own heart instead of the words of others. Put yourself out there and open a window of opportunity.

“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.” 

 Ayn Rand

Don’t underestimate the power of your network. Stay open-minded and realise that you can learn from anyone. Make friends both within your workplace and amongst your clients. It keeps you going when times are tough. Relationships are very important, but it’s important to seek feedback from those relationships, people you trust, people you value. Think about the lessons that you’ve learned and the opportunities you’ve had. 

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” 

Audrey Hepburn
