The Fourth of July Meaning for Women Entrepreneurs

July 4, 2013

Business Advice for Women Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners


The American flag has been a symbol of American freedom since July 4, 1776. According to historians, the recognizable colors and symbols have meaning. The white in the flag’s design signified purity and innocence, the red stripes represented hardiness and valor and the blue signified vigilance, perseverance and justice. The stars are a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which humankind was aspired from time immemorial; the stripes are symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun. As I pondered these colors and symbols, I feel they have meaning for women entrepreneurs as well.

Our entrepreneurial goal began as a pure light beam connecting our mind and heart. We are inspired to start something new, to take a fresh idea and breathe life into it. The red is the color that penetrates our entrepreneurial journey as we struggle through disappointments and setbacks. Blue is the shade we rest in when we have persevered to a new level of success for what we’ve accomplished.

Throughout our business journey we are led by the stars and divine goals to set the world on fire with our passion and purpose. Individually blessed and gifted we bring a significant meaning to what we do and who we help. The stripes of entrepreneurship are the rays of hope we rest our eyes on knowing with hard work and valiant effort we will achieve the financial rewards we seek.

Today’s blog post is to reignite the entrepreneurial spirit within you that was created from a pure light and purpose, which has stood the test of time and tribulation and has been rewarded for perseverance and vigilance. On July 4th in 1776, not only did we gain independence from the British, we ultimately gained freedom of choice.

I hope you look at the beautiful symbol of freedom flying high everywhere during Independence Day celebrations and see how it reflects on the career path you have chosen for your life. May you remember the purity of your deepest goals, the hardships you’ve been through and the peace that comes from all the big and small success you have achieved over the years. We are blessed to be Americans and we are blessed to be women entrepreneurs.
