100Level, Nigeria.
What does success look like to you?
I ask this because success means and looks different for everyone, and the roads we take to get there are rarely the same.

As a business and career coach, many people have asked me how I found my success and got to where I am today.
I am happy to share my story, but the thing is, my way isn’t the only way.

The African Proverb, "If you want to go fast, go alone if you want to go far, go together," has resonated with me on this journey.
In fact, the key to my success was hiring mentors and investing in myself as I built my business and sharpened my acumen.

There is incredible value in seeking out people to learn from their journeys.
So I reached out to five of the most inspiring female entrepreneurs I know to learn more about their roads to success, the failures they faced along the way and what inspires them daily.

1. Sarah Pendrick, Founder of GirlTalk Network (Instagram @girltalknetwork)
Business Success: Sarah is an international speaker, humanitarian and TV show host.
She is the founder of the GirlTalk Network, one of the biggest women empowerment platforms both on and offline.
What is great about Sarah is that she showcases how being a female entrepreneur doesn’t have to look just one way.

Key Advice For An Entrepreneur:
“The entrepreneurship journey has been hands down the most rewarding and difficult things that I have ever been through.
The difficult times will come, and when they do, be resourceful and committed to your dreams.
If you do this, you can get through anything that comes at you.

Always remember to ask yourself, how else can this happen and who else has done it?
When you make the decision to become an entrepreneur, and when you choose to be resourceful, you get to have everything.
Become resourceful, because if you do, you can do anything!”
Biggest Lesson Through Failure:
“I learned that failure is a choice, plain and simple.

One of my greatest lessons in failure has been to stay true to who I am and embrace the concept of “fail fast” to learn from it.
Consider this, the most innovative, life-changing companies stayed true to their ideas and vision, no matter what anyone else said.
Remember when people thought the internet couldn’t be possible? You must have certainty in yourself because there will always be outside opinions coming your way.”

Inspiration To Master Your Life:
“You get to be the CEO of your life.
You get to choose to decide.
Everything is a choice.”
2. Natalie Ellis, Founder, Boss Babe (Instagram @Bossbabe.inc)
Business Success: Natalie is a successful serial entrepreneur and the CEO and cofounder of BossBabe, one of the largest and fastest growing online movements of ambitious women and female entrepreneurs in the world.

Biggest Lesson Through Failure:
“One of my first ever business partnerships broke down so badly that we had to bring in lawyers to help decide who would keep the business and who would be bought out.
It was one of the most stressful things I’ve ever been through, I was literally fighting for something I’d spent so long building.

During this, I realized I only got into the business relationship because I didn’t have enough confidence in myself to go at it alone.
After it dissolved, I promised that I wouldn’t doubt myself and my abilities to achieve something ever again.
I came out of it stronger and know that actually, I am enough.”

The Journey to Success:
“I got so crystal clear on what I wanted to create in my life and took every single opportunity that I knew would get me one step closer.
For a long time, I didn’t know my exact path, but I knew the destination.
I was happy to take any road as long as it was heading in that direction.

I have found success through a combination of pure determination and resilience, alongside having incredible mentors and friends who saw the best in me and always reminded me of my worth.
Because of their support, I always say to go be that woman for another woman.”
