My Thoughts On Success As A Small Business Owner

Reflections on International Women's Day: 7 Things I've Learned as a Successful Woman Business Owner.

My name is Priya Anand, and I run a women-owned small business in Boston, Massachusetts, called Boston Graphic Design Studio, Llc. As we celebrate International Women's Day, I take pride in reflecting on my accomplishments and how far I have come. Through seven years of ups and downs, failures and successes, I've learned how important it is to be resilient, build a supportive community, take risks, embrace failure, practice self-care, know your worth, and celebrate successes, big and small.

I believe in telling the truth about what it's like to be a woman in business, and I hope to inspire and empower other women to achieve success on their own terms by staying true to themselves and surrounding themselves with support.

Happy International Women's Day!

Firstly, I want to be honest with you. It hasn't been an easy journey. There have been ups and downs, setbacks and successes, moments of doubt and moments of pure joy. But through it all, I've learned so much about myself, my business, and what it takes to succeed as a woman in the business world.

Today, I'm surrounded by people I love and who love me. I run my own business and do work that lights me up to my very core. I feel that what I do matters and makes a difference in the world. But it wasn't always like this. In fact, my life for a long time was very far away from this picture.

It's important that we tell the truth about our lives as women. Not just to show up the glossy Instagram picture about how perfect we all are because truth? Perfect is boring and it's just plain untruthful. So, without further ado, here are the 7 things I've learned from my 7 years in business:

1. The importance of resilience. No matter how many times you fall, it's important to get back up and keep going. Don't let setbacks define you.

2. Building a supportive community is key. Surround yourself with people who uplift you, support you, and believe in you.

3. Be willing to take risks. Sometimes the biggest risks lead to the biggest rewards. Trust yourself and take the leap.

4. Embrace failure. Failure is not the opposite of success, it's a part of success. Learn from your failures and use them as a stepping stone to grow and improve.

5. Self-care is crucial. Running a business can be all-consuming, but it's important to take care of yourself too. Take breaks, prioritize rest, and don't neglect your mental and physical health.

6. Know your worth. Don't undervalue yourself or your work. You are capable of achieving great things and deserve to be compensated accordingly.

7. Celebrate your successes, big and small. It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and forget to celebrate your wins. Take time to acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem.

I hope these 7 lessons inspire and empower you, no matter where you are on your journey.

Remember, success looks different for everyone, and there's no one-size-fits-all formula for achieving it. But by staying true to yourself, being resilient, and surrounding yourself with a supportive community, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.
