‘As we celebrate International Women’s Day my advice for women entrepreneurs is to not be afraid to seek mentorship, or be a mentor yourself. Feel empowered to take ownership of your career and nurture it. Remember those lessons you learned from your mentors and use it as advice to propel forward. It is important to also remember to take care of yourself and never sell yourself short. Remember this as we as women work towards a more equal future. At GoDaddy we champion the everyday entrepreneur and want people to feel empowered that they have what it takes to be a small business owner.’
