Navigating Entrepreneurship with Confidence and Networking

1. Believe in yourself: Starting a business is a challenging journey, and it's essential to have confidence in yourself and your ideas. Don't let anyone discourage you or tell you that you can't succeed.

2. Network: Building a strong network of mentors, advisors, and peers is critical to success. Seek out opportunities to connect with other entrepreneurs, attend networking events, and participate in professional organisations.

3. Stay focused: It's easy to get bogged down in the day-to-day operations of running a business, but it's important to stay focused on your long-term goals. Regularly reflect on where you want your business to go and what steps you need to take to get there.

4. Embrace failure: Failure is a natural part of the entrepreneurial journey, and it's essential to embrace it and learn from it. Don't let failure define you or discourage you from pursuing your dreams.

5. Seek out support: Starting a business can be lonely, and it's essential to have a support system in place. Seek out support from family, friends, mentors, or peer groups to help you navigate the ups and downs of entrepreneurship.

6. Inculcate your learnings to your subordinates: Experience is the best teacher. And the best way to leverage your learnings is to share the lessons with your team. 

7. Don't be afraid to ask for help: No one knows everything, and it's essential to seek out help and guidance when you need it. Don't be afraid to ask for help, whether it's from a mentor, an advisor, or a professional organisation.


As CEO, I know first-hand the challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship. By staying focused, embracing failure, and seeking out support, young female entrepreneurs can succeed and reach their full potential.

Entrepreneurial Confidence and the Power of Networking

Believe in yourself and your idea: Confidence is key in entrepreneurship. Believe that you have what it takes to turn your vision into a reality.


Network: Building relationships and connecting with others in your industry can help you gain valuable insights, resources, and support.


Stay focused and persistent: Starting a business can be challenging, but staying focused on your goals and persistent in the face of obstacles can help you achieve success.


Seek out mentors: Surrounding yourself with successful and experienced individuals can provide guidance and support as you navigate the entrepreneurial journey.


Continuously learn and grow: The business world is constantly evolving, so stay informed and continue to improve your skills and knowledge.


Don't be afraid to take calculated risks: Entrepreneurship often involves taking risks, but make sure to weigh the potential rewards against the potential drawbacks before making a decision.


Collaborate: Collaborating with others can bring new perspectives and resources to the table, helping you to achieve more than you could on your own.

Just focus on your goals no matter what.

Unwavering Focus: The Determination to Reach Your Goals

I believe every entrepreneur has to be associated with at least one globally recognized networking platform for their growth. Women especially need not quit at any point due to household chores or any other reason. We need to keep going and try our best.

Credit, Mentorship, and Networking in Entrepreneurship

Here is some piece of advice for young women entrepreneurs:

1. Take credit for your work and look for mentors where you can find them. 

2. Choose your prospective investor audience carefully and understand their expectations.

3. Develop a robust network; become a technical expert; hire people who are good in the areas you are not.

4. Be strong, work hard, and never give up.

5. With the need for change on many levels of our society including business, politics, etc., now is the best time for women to influence and lead businesses.

6. Take yourself seriously or others won't. Tell your personal story to add credibility to what you are currently doing and striving to do in future. Proudly take a seat at the table, any table. Know you have something to offer that is unique and important. Know that you are not alone, but also that you as an individual stand on your own very valid merits.

7. Work hard, be resilient and don't get caught up on the "glass ceiling."

8. Speak up, push in, don't hold back. And when you get discouraged, do it again.

9. Own your power.

10. Advocate for flexibility for working mothers. Very challenging to balance mom and work-life balance. To have both makes for a happy long-term driven employee striving for the company’s greatest achievements.

Tanu Singh, Founder, Signum Hotels & Resorts
