ARE FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS AN ‘ENDANGERED SPECIES’? 

WOMEN FOUNDED ONLY 5% OF THIS YEAR’S

BRW FASTEST GROWING COMPANIES

 

With the release on Thursday of this year’s Fastest Growing Company list by BRW, many

will be shocked to read that women are grossly under-represented in the companies that

have fast-tracked their growth and success for 2009.

 

Why are successful women in such short supply in corporate Australia?

 

This is a question that’s been keeping one woman who DID make the list, up at night.

 

“Women are clever, innovative and not limited by the ‘we’ve always done it this way’

mentality that is often cultivated in the ‘boys club’.  Women have a great opportunity to

challenge the ‘norm’ and fly under the radar as we accumulate our successes.” 

Explains

Roberta Faddoul, who, at only 32 is this year’s YOUNGEST female winner of the awards.

 

And challenging the norm is what Roberta is good at. 

Her company gave away over $7.2

million dollars worth of training in its determination to get a foothold in the competitive,

mostly ‘male-dominated’ world of Australian business.

 

Roberta is puzzled by the low representation of women in this year’s awards, and says

success for women (and men), is easy if you stick to your game plan, ‘buck the system’ and

do not follow the norm.

 

The 5 keys to her success are:

1.      Find a mentor – Her mentors include her father, George Faddoul, Sir Richard Branson,

Oprah Winfrey & Madonna

2.      Do what you love – be inspired and the money will flow

3.      Write down your goals – DREAM BIG – know where you are going – you’ll figure 

out the HOW, if your WHY is BIG enough

4.      Be innovative – think outside the box- better still reinvent the box.

5.      Invest in yourself – go to the seminars, buy products, read the books, keep up with

technology, cutting edge – in the next 5 yrs the biggest difference to where you are

now and where you want to be will be the books you read, the people you meet &

the seminars you take.

 

 

Roberta’s company Quantum Change Seminars is an NLP training company which also runs

seminars for other people wanting to learn the ‘secret’ to FAST TRACKED

success.
