Women Can Be CEOs

When it comes to the business world there are more men than there are women. However, as the years continue to emerge we begin to see more women in the business world. Even though this may be true, business is still a male dominated world. More than likely you will see two women in a conference room, while the rest are men. At times women can be treated unfairly in the business world, especially if they are attractive. Some business men tend to think that because a woman is attractive she has no brains and does not have the full capability to become a CEO. This is completely wrong! So women how do we become respected in the business world? It's simple and I'm here to tell you how.

First off learn what you are talking about. Be able to carry a conversation with a man regarding the business you are in. Never be afraid to speak your mind on your thoughts regarding the business. Let it be known how you feel. If many people disagree with you; who cares, stick to your thoughts and give your reasoning. Don't let others bring you down. For instance, if someone tells you that you do not know anything keep your head held up high and stick to it. What others say should not mean a thing to you. Don't be afraid to be dominate in certain situations. Of course men will think you are a b*tch but it doesn't matter. If you know how things should be run then tell it how it is. Being nice in the business world all the time does not get you very far. Step up to the plate when it comes to projects. Even if you feel the job might be difficult, do it anyways and prove to yourself that you can do anything. In doing so you earn respect from many. If a man in your work place disrespects you in any form, keep it professional and let it be known you're not for it. NEVER degrade yourself as a woman by taking the easy way. You do not have to sleep with an executive to reach to the top. Respect yourself more and work hard at it! Knowledge is power and trust me it will get you to where you need to be. It may not come fast, but it will come. Continue your hard work and it will be recognized when it should be.

Many women are afraid to step up to the plate because it is so male dominated, but this should never stop you. Women can be good CEOs just like a man. It just all depends on your hard work and knowledge of the business. Keep your head up and never give up!
