A congress of fired up women ready to take over the business space in Africa.
On Saturday, 4th of May 2019, The Girl Entrepreneur will be hosting the Maiden Edition of its show, Girls who mean business.
The Girls who mean
The show is born out of a passion to see more thriving and blossoming businesses being run by African entrepreneurs. We intend to start a revolution that will transform the entire business climate in Africa with special focus on women.
We believe that time’s up for women being known for owning mediocre businesses and we are organizing these series of shows to see to that.
Via this talk show, we intend to fortify attendees with information, opportunities and ideas to create their dream businesses.
The GWMB show is a learn and share avenue for women to talk, network, pour their hearts out about the challenges they’re facing, then, glean practical ideas to scale through the milestones.

Who we are is more important than what we do. This is so true. Most of the time, we are so action-driven that we fill our lives with activities and bombard our to-do lists with tasks to accomplish within a period of time… and sometimes, we become burdened and discouraged when we can’t accomplish some of these things we set out to achieve.
At the beginning of every year, we come up with a list of goals, resolutions, and action-plans. Most of us are so performance oriented that we don’t pay attention to the most important thing in life – who we are! For who we are is what influences what we do.
Are you running a hobby or a business?
Last week, we touched on some practical steps to take in growing your small business and believe that the post would be incomplete if we don’t write about the differences between running a hobby and a business. The reason is, a lot of small business owners are running their hobbies and think they are running businesses. No wonder there are increased frustrations, poorly structured, and failing businesses as more people step into the entrepreneurship shoes.
This February, we talked a lot about growth and we will like to wrap the series up with a discovery we made on Facebook, the number one social media channel used in 129 out of 137 countries in the world. Facebook despite the outrageous competition, has been able to keep its head above the waters and retain its position as the top social media channel in the world. Certainly, this will inspire you to become a growth-oriented individual as well as help you stay ahead of your contemporaries.
