As I write this I am getting very close to turning 40 and what I have realized is that this new decade of life is going to be the best of all the years I have experienced. Turning 40 is exciting to me because of where I am and who I have become over the years. I feel like I am having a peaking experience and I am aware enough to enjoy it.
40’s is the new ‘time of our lives’. Here is a couple of reasons why…
- Because of experience I now know what I want in my life and what I don’t want.
- I am willing to put up with way less shit.
- I am much more direct with my words.
- I have way more discipline then I have ever had.
- My confidence has grow by leaps and bounds through life experience.
- My worth is no longer tied to what others think of me or if they like me. (recovering people pleaser here)
- I value things like self-care, health, sleep and taking care of my body.
And for all of these reasons women in their 40’s make some of the best entrepreneurs.
We know who we are. We know what we want. This makes it much easier to set goals, and get the things done that need getting done.
We aren’t broke. A women in her 40’s can start a business with a little less stress because they most likely aren’t still paying off college debt and living off of ramen.
We have discipline and consistency. These two characteristics are mandatory for being a successful business women. We naturally have more discipline and consistency because of practice and having experienced the results when we did not.
We are strong. Going through some hard times has made us stronger. We won’t give up when things aren’t going our way. We know from experience to keep on keeping on and things will happen.
Women entrepreneurs are some of my favorite people for these same reasons. All of you bad ass boss ladies out there, be proud of yourselves. You are a force.
If you are not yet an entrepreneur but want to become one this is for you…
