    Von Tobel speaks of fear, and the need to stare it down and move beyond it, which she feels is the number one impediment to not only women becoming entrepreneurs, but men as well.

    In her Huffington Post article, LearnVest CEO Alexa Von Tobel: What Women Do That Holds Them Back, Bianca Bosker, asks Von Tobel, how women can get it done.

    In What Women Do That Holds Them Back , it posits, “The best advice I ever got was from someone who once said to me, “If you knew what it takes to create a startup you’d never start.” That was the most real sentence I ever heard. If you knew everything that it takes to start company, you wouldn’t get out of bed in the morning…..I think the best advice is to really build the smartest and best team, then take great care of people on your team. That love makes people excited to work and it’s the committed, passionate people that help create magic, which is what you create when you’re the CEO of a startup.”

    See Alexa Von Tobel on the Gayle King Show (Oprah Winfrey Network)

    Good Luck.
