When you think about the word ‘entrepreneur’, qualities like leadership, fierceness, and hard-working might come to mind. But what about the quality of kindness? 

The theme of collaboration over competition has surfaced over the years changing the way entrepreneurs do business. This shift is caused by major changes in the industry like the fact that women have grown to represent over 42 percent of all American businesses with over 250 million women entrepreneurs worldwide. And psychologically, women report experiencing more compassion in their lives than men report doing. So, it’s time to change the way we think about business. 

Amazing things happen when entrepreneurs shift from a self-centered, aggressive approach and choose to be sympathetic and have compassion in business. In honor of World Kindness Day, we decided to dive into how kindness goes a long way for entrepreneurs.

- Kindness leads to success - Taking the previous points into consideration, kindness leads to success within your business and personal life. You are creating genuine connections that last longer than a simple business deal. This becomes the community that supports you and cheers you on through the hardships and celebrations. 
- Kindness helps everyone’s health - Being kind can improve anyone’s mental and physical health. If you’ve ever had a job experience where your boss or colleague took a toll on your stress levels, you’ll know how important it is to be compassionate. If the people you work with are feeling anxious or overwhelmed, it can hurt business because they lack motivation and a sense of fulfillment. Stress also leads to negative health effects like heart disease and higher blood pressure. When a work environment starts impacting health in such ways, many people are quick to leave and find new jobs in more company culture-centered places.
