It’s a new year. And with the onset of 2014 comes renewed resolve and myriad forecasts of trends to come. One of which, the ascendency of women in business and the premium placed on female leadership traits and competencies, does not seem to be a passing fad of 2013. In fact, a recent Forbes article enumerated 11 reasons female entrepreneurs should be optimistic about the future, citing data from The Athena Doctrine about how men and women leaders alike can benefit from deploying traditionally feminine qualities into their skill set.

Other signs that 2014 will witness successful female entrepreneurs include studies on how diversity of thought improves performance and increases innovation, women’s natural ability to leverage their extensive networks and their willingness to learn from their mistakes.
