    8 March is a significant date for women around the globe. International Women’s Day is a day dedicated to championing women’s achievements and causes to accelerate gender balance. This year’s theme is #BalanceforBetter, a call to action for accelerating equality in business, politics, media coverage and wealth.

    Equality in having fun is as important as well!

    As the voices on equality grow even louder, so are the voices for greater participation of women in entrepreneurship! Given that women make up about half of the global population with longer life expectancy than men, it makes perfect sense to tap into the talent of women and hone it for obvious economic and societal benefits.

    The idea that women are only limited to the boundaries of kitchen and house chores has long faded into obscurity and has been relegated to jokes and memes. Instead, women entrepreneurship is progressively being regarded as one of the key drivers of economic growth and sustainable development.

    In fact, the word ‘shepreneur’ has been making its rounds as a buzzword on the internet. It’s only fitting to give more weight to this noun so that it can be a rallying flag for aspiring women entrepreneurs!

    Another reason to be a shepreneur - what better way to leave a personal stamp in the progress for equality than taking charge of your destiny with your personal branding?
