I love surrounding myself with a tribe of incredible women who encourage me to hustle harder and bring nothing but positive energy into my life. Most of them even happen to be entrepreneurs as well! They inspire me every single day to work harder and I know together we will all continue to leave our own legacies. Here are some words of wisdom, encouragement, and personal stories from these powerful ladies to inspire you to elevate your game!

Female Entrepreneurs: Inspire Your Hustle

“Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another. We’re strongest when we cheer each other on.”
– Serena Williams, world-renowned tennis player and founder of “Serena,” an independent clothing collection

“[How much have your fans, and their opinions, influenced the way you work as a businesswoman?] Take, for example, my makeup line. There were a couple of opinions that other people might not have loved to hear, but they were really important for me as learning tools. I’m truly listening to these people and watching everyone’s tutorials on YouTube, and watching all these makeup artists use my products. I’m like, ‘Okay, we gotta fix that, guys. That’s something I really did not think about.’ I take their advice to heart. I want to do better.”
– Kim Kardashian West, television personality, model, and founder of KKW Beauty

“If I tell you all the people who told me I wasn’t going to act, or sing or dance, or I wasn’t good at it…I would be locked in a house somewhere doing nothing. The truth is, nobody knows what’s inside of you. Only you know what’s inside of you. Only you know what you can accomplish, and what you’re capable of.”
– Jennifer Lopez, singer, dancer, actress, producer, and founder of J.Lo by Jennifer Lopez

“Now that I understand some of the risks that come with procedures like the one I had [breast reduction surgery], I have completely reshuffled my priorities and become a major advocate for beauty in its most natural form….And if there’s something I prefer to hide or highlight? I can enhance features with makeup, or direct the eye elsewhere….For those, like me, who have allowed internet trolls to dictate how you view your face or body, I have one thing to say to you: do not, absolutely not, allow keyboard gangsters to steal your shine. There is a reason they are trying to dim your light and it’s because they want what you already have. Do not allow these words to get to your heart, your soul, and your mind. It is all poison and you already are its antidote.”
– Hrush Achemyan, celebrity makeup artist and founder of Styled by Hrush

“As mothers, we are building great cathedrals. We cannot be seen if we are doing it right, and one day it is very possible that the world will marvel not only at what we have built but at the beauty that has been added to the world by the sacrifices by invisible mothers. So I had found my why. My why is what I’m building in the walls of my own home.”
– Amber Ridinger-McLaughlin, entrepreneur and founder of Lumière de Vie, Lumière de Vie Hommes and DNA Miracles
