New Delhi (India), March 7: Until a while ago, it was a known stereotype that women were incapable of running a successful business. That they should focus on taking care of the family, children and home while the man earns and runs the household. Women were perceived as emotional and incapable of entering the harsh business world.
However, every woman defies this preconception and prejudice in today’s world. Several women have taken steps in this direction by entering the business field. Starting from the ground up, learning everything, planning and re-planning and persevering even in the face of adversity.
The Vocal for Local app has successfully helped thousands of women revolutionise and scale their businesses. Change, opportunities, reinvention, and convenience are all part of Vocal For Local.
