At Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), we support the positive trend of empowering women in entrepreneurship. Specific groups including MyEO Women of EO encourage support as individuals pursue their unique entrepreneurial journeys. To celebrate Women’s Entrepreneurship Day on 19 November, we are sharing exclusive content from three WOMENtrepreneurs from different countries, which may inform others as they embark on their entrepreneurial journeys. Mary Evelyn is managing director of Bushwood Golf Club and a member serving as president of EO-Toronto; Deb Gabor is CEO of Sol Marketing and an EO-Austin member; Kim Parascos is CEO of iVolve Pty Ltd and an EO-Brisbane member.
In part one of this article, the three WOMENtrepreneurs discuss their paths that led to entrepreneurship, and specific challenges they’ve overcome to achieve success.
