Female Founders: Erin Meagher of Beneficial Blends On The Five Things You Need To Thrive and Succeed as a Woman Founder
Money, money, money. That’s three. But it took a lot more money to get to where I am today than I knew it would. However, I’m glad I didn’t know beforehand because it may have dissuaded me from starting. There is something to be said for being a naïve founder! Nothing wrong with that. Also, owning a business isn’t just all about the business. You’re going to find things out about yourself that you either didn’t know or maybe want to know. I am ever-evolving as a founder, CEO and leader. You can’t just work on your business, you have to work on yourself too.
