The Unexpected Impact Of Birth Control On Female Entrepreneurship

Today marks the first day of March and the start of Women’s History Month, a time to recognize the contributions that women have made to our nation.

Can we please stop fetishizing ‘entrepreneurship’?

I don’t know when calling ones self an ‘entrepreneur’ became a thing… But it’s gotten to the point where the word ‘entrepreneur’ used in common conversation has become a pretty massive red flag for me. I know exactly zero successful people who think of themselves in this way. The restaurant people think of themselves as restaurant people, the trucking people think of themselves as trucking people, and on it goes. There’s a real perception out there right now that starting a business without any real industry knowledge is a viable route.

Opening a business is for when you’re the real no-bullshit deal and you want to get paid accordingly. It’s not a shortcut. Every overnight success any of you are thinking of was years in the making. EDIT: I should be really clear… If you can sell almost any business is a viable possibility for you. You’ll be looking at the business from the perspective of ‘I could sell that…’ and that’s a very solid way to pick out businesses. It is definitely not what I’m trying to talk about. I’m mostly talking about people who…
