It takes a whole lot of patience and perseverance to be a business woman. Most have families and extended families. Perseverance because you sometime have to be receptionist, mail clerk, marketer, human resource person, janitor and secretary. I have my own office and I have to be all of the above.
Patience because you have to deal with all types of clients. Some know what they want but most only know what they don't want. Some are easy to work with while others will give you Hell. They expect miracles with just a little investment and they want it yesterday!
