While they come from diverse backgrounds —business, the academe, media, travel, and entertainment, even the Good Shepherd Sisters— the inspiring stories of the 55 women featured in the book reveal the strength, independence, and determination to succeed as entrepreneurs.
Motivated by the need to provide for their families and unaffected by traditional gender biases, these women entrepreneurs have proven that their innate feminine strengths and hard work can result in success.
When a Filipina takes on the role of mother, and sister, she often chooses to prioritize her family over her career. However, times are changing —and her decision no longer means that she has lost the opportunity to succeed in the business world. I also believe that a woman’s tendency to nurture, collaborate, and be supportive of people, like she is with her family helps her achieve great results in business. A woman’s need to provide for her family may even be the prime motivator of her success, as it is with mine.
The stories about the women featured in the book should be a road map, as well as an inspiration for women who wish to succeed in the business. I would like to cite the Philippine Center for Entrepreneurship-Go Negosyo for its efforts to encourage women to follow their dreams and tap their potentials as they enter the world of business.
