In this episode of Take a Breath, hosts Debra and Wendie are joined by special guest Frida Labra to discuss her entrepreneurial journey and the challenges facing women in business. Frida is a 20-year-old entrepreneur from Mexico, who currently works with her father to run their family business.
Besides being an entrepreneur, Frida is part of the Nehemiah E-Community and is currently working with Jamil Rosales, the center director for the Nehemiah Project in Mexico.
Frida notes that sexism is one of the major challenges she has faced as a woman entrepreneur. She recounts the story of how a client refused to do business with her company, simply because she is a woman, and insisted on talking to her father instead.
Frida says that this experience made her realize that there are still many people who believe that women are not capable of running businesses successfully. However, seeking God’s intervention and patience has helped her to overcome this challenge.
“You cannot control other people, but you can control how you respond. You respond with love, you respond with kindness, you respond with respect regardless of how they act.” Wendy adds.
Another challenge women face is not believing in themselves. The dismissal of our importance and the value for what we’re doing can send the wrong message to others. As women in business, we must learn to value what we do, so that others can respect us as well.
Identity and destiny are two very important things that we must discover for success. Knowing who we are and what God’s plans and purposes for us are so that we do not think of ourselves as smaller or insignificant.
Remember, when you put God first, He will direct your path. He will open doors that no man can shut and give you the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to be successful.
