The best thing about being a women must be that we are able to bring life to this world. I mean, what could be more powerful than that? What advice would you give your 15-year old self? I was a quite Happy 15 year old girl without much trouble in my head but one advice would be to not grow up to fast! And have a lot of fun before everything with responsibilities comes along. Was starting Soft Goat and the entrepreneur life an easy choice? Yes it really was. I don’t like to think twice about things. What characaristics/vertues do you think are important for a female entrepreneur to have? I think it’s important not to feel like you have any obstacles just because you are a woman. We can do anything just as good as anyone else! What do you think that women can do to empower each other? I think that women generally are really good showing compassion for one another and that is a power that I think men sometimes are in lack of. Do you think that women can empower one another more? I am very lucky to have friends, coworkers and really inspiring women in the same industry around me and who all empower each other but of course you can always do more! As a mother to a daughter, what do you think is important to teach her? I think it is very important to teach her to be independent and not afraid of life. For other women who wants to start their own businesses or companies, what are your tips? Ask a lot of questions, do your homework about the field you are about to enter and don’t be afraid to fail! You never know if it’s a good idea or not if you don’t try!
