Anna Molnár is a business coach for female entrepreneurs, with an immense passion for languages and literature, a special analytic eye for complex situations, and a huge drive to get the best out of people and their companies. I help ambitious businesswomen to make themselves and their companies blossom by creating a solid and healthy business strategy, so they work smarter instead of harder. I also help them create real impact, high income, and time with loved ones.
What is your story and what led you to join the entrepreneurial world?
When I turned 40, I felt a turning point in my life. I had it all: a nice job, a nice partner, a nice house, etc., but I wasn’t feeling fulfilled. I felt the need to create something valuable with all my talents, experience, expertise, and passion. I realized that I wanted to create my own company so that I could help other women to live their best life. This is how Blossom Empowering Events was born.
What have you learned in your entrepreneurial career?
My entrepreneurial career has taught me so much about myself, my hopes, and my fears. It has also taught me that we all need support, no matter what level we are. It’s essential to surround yourself with a support system, where it’s safe to ask questions and be vulnerable. This way you can really overcome the hurdles on your way, instead of just ignoring them and making them worse.
What is one thing you still really want to do in your entrepreneurial career?
I would love to help Japanese female entrepreneurs to thrive. I love Japan and Japanese culture. It would make me enormously proud if I could help Japanese women to be more independent while respecting their traditions.
Looking back, what is one thing you would do differently?
Asking for help a lot sooner. Every week that goes by unresolved is a week too much.
What would you advise women starting their journeys in the entrepreneurial space?
Surround yourself with people who believe in your capacities. Make a serious plan for your business and be flexible while executing it. Get into the action, ask questions, fail, learn, and get going again. And don’t forget to enjoy the ride! Be professional, but don’t be too serious. Enjoy the creativity and the freedom that comes with being an entrepreneur and inspire others to do the same!
What are common challenges women face in the startup world and how can we tackle them according to you?
Common challenges are perfectionism, procrastination, wanting to please everyone, impostor syndrome, difficulty talking about money and asking for a sale, being too humble, wanting to do and be everything for everyone, and being overworked… to just name a few. Awareness is the first step to tackling them all. Understand what your most common pitfall is and work on overcoming it.
