Welcome to the article on female entrepreneurs and business owners. In the corporate world, women have always been a powerful force, and their contributions have only grown over time. Every industry is impacted by the large number of women-owned firms in the world economy. We got a chance to discuss with AyeeSha Omadibi, Founder of Hustle Africa.
Women have persisted in breaking down barriers and making substantial progress in business despite obstacles including gender prejudice, restricted access to capital and resources, and cultural expectations. In this article, we will highlight successful women in business and entrepreneurship, offer helpful success advice, and celebrate the achievements of women who have broken down barriers and paved the way for future generations. Come celebrate with us as we give women more power.
Meet AyeeSha Omadibi of Hustle Africa:
What inspired you to start your business, and what challenges did you face along the way?
I’ve been a writer all my life. A creative writer who’s worked in marketing for close to a decade. It only felt right that I start a business to solve the problems I’d always helped people and businesses solve as an employee.
How do you balance the demands of running a business with your personal life?
I have help, I rely on every help I can get and I don’t hesitate to ask for help. I also have an extremely supportive spouse.
In what ways do you see your business contributing to the empowerment of women in your community?
We have been blessed to work with more women-owned businesses than men-owned businesses, and that’s why I can excitedly tell you how much growth these businesses achieve. As they grow, you see them empowering other women.
We also employ more women than men, because empowered women empower women. It’s our way of embracing equity and ensuring that women are not lacking opportunities. We give paid internship opportunities to young women who desire to hone their skills in this field. Finally we’ve offered full scholarship opportunities to 3 women at the first cohort of our academy.
What advice do you have for other women who are considering starting their own businesses?
Just do it. Do it afraid, but do it anyway. Don’t wait to have all the clarity you need. Clarity continues to unfold as you do. One of the perks of starting your own business that nobody ever talks about, is how self aware you become. It’s a thrilling journey. One you need to embark on. Don’t wait another day.
How do you envision your business growing and evolving in the coming years, and what steps are you taking to achieve those goals?
We’re working to connect the African continent with wholesome content. Whether it’s in the content we create, or in the businesses we support to connect with their customers. In the coming years, we will be known for profitable and wholesome content across the African continent.
