  4. Time Committment
  5. Failure

1. Fear

The fear of failure, and the uncertainty whether the venture will be successful is one of the many reasons many women do not start their own business. They get tied down to working for their bosses, working according to their bosses’ demands and schedules, and often struggle with balancing work and personal life. Often, this fear is baseless, but mostly this fear is a result of many other factors impacting a woman’s life.

2. Lack of Support

Often times women do not have the support from their loved ones to propel them into achieving their dreams. This is a difficult journey to undertake on your own, and with constant criticism and questioning, it becomes even harder to take the leap of faith. It is imperative that women build a support network that helps them towards fulfilling their dreams.

3. Finances

Let’s be honest, the biggest reason any of us ever goes to work is financial independence and the ability to support ourselves. In a cut throat environment, where living expense are constantly rising, both partners need to work to support a family. This is one of the biggest reasons women will not start their own business.

4. Time Commitment

We already struggle to balance our work and personal lives. Starting a new business is a lot of work, a lot of unpaid hours to initially set up and start up, a lot of wakeful nights, and research. Let’s be honest, it requires us to give time that we already don’t have. We get comfortable with our routines and it is definitely easier to continue to do that then stir the pot.

5. Failure

The constant questioning and fear of failure will hold us back from achieving our dreams. If you have failed before, then you are even more scared to take on a risky venture.

Combine all of the above and it is the kryptonite for most brilliant ideas that keep you awake at night. Most of those ideas then die on your pillow top.

falling stars

As the night sky lights up

With your bombs and missiles

Miles away I wish upon

A falling star

For every fallen

child of the war in Gaza.

As I breathe freely

While you scramble

For oxygen

I think of the fallen

Child of the war in Gaza.

 When I sleep in peace

At night

I think of

Every fallen child

In the war of Gaza.

The next time you

 wish upon a falling star

Remember it was

Once a child

In the war of Gaza!!!!
