Three Tips for Latina Entrepreneurs
One quarter of entrepreneurs of the nation’s immigrants are entrepreneurs, despite the fact that immigrants make up just 15 percent of the U.S. population.
That’s according to National Bureau of Economic Research working paper entitled Immigrant Entrepreneurship. Cited on Forbes.com last year in an article about the same subject, the paper was written by William Kerr, the Dmitri V. D’Arbeloff, MBA class of 1955 professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, with his wife Sari Pekkala Kerr, a labor economist at Wellesley College.
If you seek to join or are among the ranks of entrepreneurs that make up that one quarter or are among the current operators of Latina woman-owned businesses, which have increased by more than 137 percent in the last 10 years, according to the National Women’s Business Council, here are three tips for Latina business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs:
1. Accept help when you need it, and be a mentor and support to those in need. We all needed help to get where we are today.
2. Be true to yourself. Think about what you value most in life, and shape a business that lets you enjoy those things. For many of us, time with loved ones is priority number one. Organize your life to set limits and take care of yourself. You’ll be happier and more satisfied with work and life if you do.
3. Never give up. Being your own boss isn’t always easy, but the returns are great. Take time to reflect on each day’s accomplishments, however small. Celebrate small wins, and learn from your mistakes.
Remember, that you do have what it takes. You’re fierce, capable and fabulous.
