Why is this? I think some of it is the lack of role models which is really key for all of us, but it is also african scammers who are sometimes afraid to ask or to aim high. Successful women entrepreneurs are the ones who step up to the plate and ask for what they want. They know that a male counterpart will do exactly the same thing and the worst that can happen is someone says ‘No.’ Look at Sara Blakely, she did not stop when people said ‘No’ to her; she kept going. The rest of us need to do the same.
