Why Women Should have a Career?


Growing urbanization and industrialization has necessitated women to work. Inflation has caught on these days and recession at present is giving a tough time to people who are finding it difficult to meet both ends. In a family both husband and wife have to work to maintain a decent standard of living and provide good education and medical needs as well as other amenities for their family.

Women now aspire for a challenging life. They know they have to work, and career seems to be a better option rather than taking on any job to supplement their income. It is a difficult choice as they have to manage both their home and work. The responsibility of taking care of children can make a career difficult to deal with. Nevertheless, they want to utilize their talents to best extent possible.

Many women choose to be single and prefer a career. They divert their time and energy into a profession of their choice.

  1. Amitabh Shukla,
    Want to commend you for a job well done. I bumped into your site and believe you me, I have more than been thrilled with the indepth you have researched on the subject of entrepreneurship. I have recently ventured into a business of training the community in basic computer packages and related services with the view of empowering the community with computer knowldge as well as raising their awareness. I live in a community that is riddled with so much poverty and high level of dependence syndrom. So instead of me and a few others appearing to have something to share, this thought came into me that I start something of this kind at village level and build my way up.
    Just by reading some of the topics which I have so far read from your site, you talk of a mentor? am already seeing one in you.
    I invested all that I could raise in a handful of computers and some office equipment, and hardly left anything aside for working capital. Its an uphill task but I wont let go. I am determined to forge ahead, and now beginning to learn from you, I will see to it that I dont make some of the common mistakes that other startups have made without mentors.
    Best wishes in your work.
