In the past few decades, women from around the world are coming together to achieve many milestones within all kinds of industries - moving shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts.
Naturally, this must make you want to join the ranks of these women and become a challenge for these men as well - but you need to keep in mind that being a female entrepreneur is no walk in the park. There is still a lot of discrimination and what works for others will not necessarily work for you. You will have to forge your own path and stick with it through the end.
Fortunately, there are a few female entrepreneurs who have used their fierce determination to start up their own businesses and make them prosper into one of the best companies around the world.
To start a business, you need a consultant with decades of experience, and we just happen to know one, Ginger King. She has over three decades of expertise and is well-known worldwide in the beauty sector. Ginger King is a highly-awarded cosmetic chemist who is an expert in all facets of beauty, including retail, production, R&D, marketing, sales of decorative raw materials, and consulting. Breakthrough Award Judge for Allure Magazine since 2017 and Brain Trust for New Beauty Magazine since 2020, are some of her mentionable achievements.
Since 1995, King has been working towards creating beauty products from concept to finish. After holding a number of patents in cosmetic formulations, she has developed thousands of products such as skincare, haircare, sun care, etc. King developed Joico ‘ICE SPIKER’, Freeze 24.7 Ice Shield, SPF 15 face wash, and the Avon Advance Techniques Color Protection series.
In 2020, King had invested around $50,000 in order to launch her self-funded FanLoveBeauty - a cruelty-free, natural, clean, vegan beauty inspired by her mentor, Daymond John of Shark Tank. King is also the first person who introduced the very first vegan lip balm, ‘Stage Balm For Lips’, to public speakers. Some of her most notable works also include being the CEO and President of Grace Kingdom Beauty, which is a cosmetic product development firm in New Jersey where she works on consulting for cosmetic brands, contract manufacturers, including raw material suppliers.
Throughout her career, King has held various management positions with Jason Natural Cosmetics, a natural cosmetic brand and was even the Beauty Consultant for Estee Lauder, Elizabeth Arden, Chanel, Men’s Fragrances, and many more. Moeoever, as a keynote speaker for brand launches, she has spoken at several trade conferences on product innovation and development.
For years now, King continues to deliver her exceptional capabilities - and here are some ways you can learn to do the same.
Acquiring Business Skills
It is rare for entrepreneurs to get everything right from the beginning. Most need to develop through determination and hard work.
Before starting your business, consider developing basic entrepreneurial skills - attend seminars, start a book on entrepreneurship, connect with people who are starting their own business or have already started it, etc.
Managing Your Time Wisely
One of the biggest struggles of female entrepreneurs is that they often deal with time constraints.
This is largely due to the fact that they have to deal with different responsibilities both at their home and workplace. Granted that it can be quite overwhelming but if you take the time to manage your responsibilities in an efficient manner, you will find the ideal balance that will help you to take care of your family while allowing you to thrive in your professional life as well.
