It is no longer a man’s world

International Women’s Day has been recognised since the 1900’s, each year the 8th March is about celebrating women globally. Today’s society recognises the value that women bring to individual communities and collectively to the world.

There is still a commitment to the original aim, which is, to achieve full gender equality for women. According to the Global Gender Gap Index 2017, the gender gap is expected to be closed in 100 years. Yes, 100 years! But one things for sure it is no longer a man’s world.

The number of women in self-employment has grown consistently since 2001. The sky is the limit when you are your own boss and there is not a glass ceiling in sight. The flexibility that comes with self-employment allows women to balance their working life and personal commitments entirely how they wish. The element of freedom also means your mind has the flexibility it needs to make good decisions.

Could this mean self-employment is the dream for most women?

Cathi, an Approved Driving Instructor from Barnsley advised FBTC ‘I held down five Head of Department, of Foreign Languages posts. After 31 years working full time, nonstop, I needed more flexibility. 18 months ago, I contacted RED Driving School and embarked on my training. I am now qualified as an Approved Driving Instructor and very satisfied with my new life’.

Like Audrey Hepburn said, ‘Nothing is impossible, the word itself says I’m possible’.
