Why I Don’t Like Being Labeled a Female Entrepreneur

Originally published on AllBusiness.com.

No, this post isn’t about gender identity—it’s about how arbitrary I find the labels “female entrepreneur” and “woman entrepreneur.”

People like to create two categories for business owners: entrepreneurs and female entrepreneurs. I have never understood why the two have to be separated.  Haven’t we reached the point in our society where we’ve stopped delineating between the capabilities of each gender? (Watch the videos in the Always’ #LikeAGirl campaign for tear-jerking examples.) Can’t we just focus on the subject of entrepreneurship without breaking it down further?

When Analog Marketing Goes Where Digital Can’t

While I wouldn’t say that I’ve been anti-analog marketing, I have built Egg around the perks of reaching customers online…that is, until now.

If You Don’t Know What You Want for Your Business, How Can You Get It?

Originaly published on AllBusiness.com

The other day, I was chatting with someone I hadn’t seen in a while. She asked how my business was doing.

“Business? Er, it’s fine.”

My reply shocked me, because normally I grin and say, “Really well, thanks!” But lately I’ve been feeling a little adrift in terms of what I want for my business, and therefore business hasn’t been booming like normal. I realize it’s my own damn fault.

I’m a big believer in setting intentions and making what you want a reality. I do it in my personal life, so why wasn’t I doing it for my business? Can you relate?

5 Things We Micropreneurs Really Want for Christmas

Originally published on AllBusiness.com

As I’m making my holiday wish list on Amazon and sending it to my mother (Don’t judge! Don’t you wish your mom still sent you fuzzy socks for Christmas?), I’m thinking about those less tangible things I’d love someone to give me that are perfect for a micropreneur like myself (someone who operates a business on a very small scale).

If Santa is reading this, here are the things this micropreneur hopes to find in her stocking on Christmas morning:
