I’ve been running my own web design studio for over 6 years. Being the boss is tough, and being the boss when you’re a woman is even tougher, I have to work twice as hard to appear credible . (author’s note: I acknowledge the complexity of using the term ‘woman’ and I’m referring to anyone who wants to identify with the term ‘woman’ in this context).
I run a small, busy agency, I lead a team of people, close deals, draw up contracts and I deal with clients and their evolving needs. Dealing with clients means I have an incredible amount of responsibility sitting on my shoulders and it’s hectic.
