Business advice from 3 inspiring female entrepreneurs

Arianna Huffington Start Business Advice Arianna Huffington on ryrob

Arianna is a co-founder of The Huffington Post, author of the recent New York Times best-seller The Sleep Revolution and stepped down as Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post to pursue her new wellness startup, Thrive Global, which will offer wellness trainings and workshops on stress reduction. Here’s her business advice for entrepreneurs who want to start a business for the first time:

“If you’re going to start a business, you need to really love it, because not everybody is going to love it. When The Huffington Post was first launched in 2005, there were so many detractors. I remember a critic who wrote that The Huffington Post was an unsurvivable failure.”

“When you get reviews like that and detractors like that, you have to really believe in your product. When you really believe in your product, you are willing to deal with all the naysayers and persevere.”

Sophia Amoruso. Start-Business-Advice-with-Sophia-Amoruso-on-ryrob

Sophia transformed Nasty Gal from an eBay store into a multi-million dollar empire with her own clothing line that was named the fastest growing retailer in 2012. She’s also the author of the New York Times best-seller #GIRLBOSS. Here’s her best piece of business advice to aspiring entrepreneurs who want to start a business:

“Don’t give up, don’t take anything personally, and don’t take no for an answer; you never know what you’re going to learn along the way.”

“The people who told me no, were the people that eventually told me yes; so don’t forget it.”

Tara Gentile. Business Advice and How to Start a Business with Tara Gentile on ryrob

Author, speaker, and the founder of What Works. Tara works with business owners to help them transition into more profitable business models, more compelling messaging, and more influence. She’s featured in Fast Company, Forbes, Inc, and DailyWorth for the work she’s done with her clients. Here’s Tara’s take on the biggest mistake new entrepreneurs make when they want to start a business:

“They wait to get started. They wait until they have more information, more experience, more, more money, and a more perfect version of whatever they have created.”

“All that waiting means they’re not really learning. When you’re an entrepreneur, the best way to learn is to do something, to put your idea into someone’s hands, or to talk to the people you want to serve. Stop waiting and do… something.”
