The following quote from me was in response to a question posed by the editor of CEO Blog Nation on advice I’d give to young women entrepreneurs:

Stay true to your concept in the face of criticism

I think women face a major obstacle, no matter what their age, when they’re starting a new business: fear of criticism. Everyone faces criticism and skepticism when launching something new, but I think women tend to take criticism personally and have a built-in desire to please everyone. If you let critics sidetrack you and instill doubt about your business plan, you’ll spin your wheels and waste a lot of time. So my advice is to stay true to your concept in the face of whatever criticism you get. Use any skepticism or negativity about your ability to succeed as a challenge–prove them wrong!
