Johanna Mukoki identifies common barriers facing businesswomen, and what to do about it

Making it as an entrepreneur takes hard work, dedication and a delicate balance between the different spheres of your life. The co-founder and group CEO of Travel with Flair, Johanna Mukoki, identifies common barriers facing businesswomen, and what to do about it:


Whether you’re in a family, married, a single mom, or a high achieving woman on your own, you need a stable, functional home so you can thrive in your work life.
Many women are unhappy in their later lives because they sacrifice a lot for their kids, and then their kids leave them. A happy mom is a mom who is living to her fullest potential.
Never make your partner feel like they must compete for attention with your business – when you’re home you need to be fully present.
Listen to your body and do what is needed. Many women do not look after themselves. We always give more of ourselves to others and we don’t do much for ourselves. You are not useful if you’re lying in hospital for a couple of weeks, having had serious surgery, while you could have done it with a few tablets – if only you had gone to the doctor sooner.
You need to know the people you are raising. Ask your children about their highs and lows so that they condense all their emotions in one day. You will be able to help them along because kids are very honest at a young age. If you teach them to talk you never have to worry about their well-being.
