Why Most Business Advice Doesn’t Work For Women

EmpowHer’d Conversations with Richa Jain,
Business Strategist & Mentor, India


Most of the Business and Career advice out there DOES NOT work for women. Instead, it sets them up for failure.

Women don’t quite realize that until it is too late. Or sh!t hits the roof.

Whether it’s the corporate world or the business world; whether it’s Yoga or seat belts, the “default” is designed for men. At the very best, they add on a touch of pink for women.

In this conversation we remove those blinkers. We talk about how women are ‘different’ from men and how to embrace and leverage our ‘differences’.

We cover

  • Why most career advice doesn’t work for women – esp the higher up the ladder you go
  • Why most business advice and courses ALSO doesn’t work for women – they fall flat
  • Why so many women are leaving corporate and starting their own businesses
  • The real issues holding women back in corporate & business; and why more trainings and advice directed AT women is not going to help.
  • What to do instead.
