Know your numbers!
Whether you’re analyzing your cash flow, pitching for funding, or figuring out how much you can afford to pay your first employee…it’s all about math!
It’s a fact…girls (even today!) suffer more from math anxiety than boys, according to recent studies. As we found businesses at the highest rate in history that becomes a real problem. Knowing your business math and feeling comfortable with financial decisions are keys to running a successful venture.
Furthermore, women remain under-represented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), which are growing industries.
But this week, sheBOOM is going to be a math-anxiety-free zone, as we educate and celebrate the women who care about their figures (and we’re not talking about hip and bust size!)
Did you found a company in a math-related field? Accounting, financial services, investment advising, data analysis, market research, or other? Do you have a great story to share about how overcoming a fear of numbers helped you grow? Or, do you just have financial/money advice to share with other women entrepreneurs? We’d love to hear from you! Just reach out to us here.
