These seven useful traits are what make up a successful woman in the workplace and in a relationship.
1. Be Completely Self Reliant
A woman who can take care of herself and does depend on everyone around her is a wonderful trait. It is okay to be taken care of and you should be able to allow yourself to be vulnerable, but also know that if needed you can do it your own, whether standing up for yourself, learning a new skill, or even just going to an event by yourself and holding your own. The ability to do things and accomplish them on your own is a trait that will carry you very far in life.
2. Be Ambitious
Dream big and run for them! You may not accomplishment exactly what you set out for but you can grow and learn along the way and may even run into something better. If you are running towards what you love and setting high standards it makes life more exciting and challenging, but also more rewarding. And who knows, you might just get to the dream after all, then it’s time to try a new challenge.
3. Know what you Want
A lot of people stumble around unhappy but never really making goals or deciding even on the simplest of things. Life is short, focus on what you want and let people know or make start trying to attain those wants with hard work. You may want and desire something that ends up being a mistake or it could be glorious but you’ll never know till you take the risk. Don’t worry about as much about what others tell you you want, because in the end it’s your life. Definitely be open to their opinions but go for the life you want, not the life and dreams you’re told to have.
4. Be Loyal
A loyal and trustworthy partner, friend, coworker is valued highly. If people know they can trust you, then you will be a major asset in your workplace or a closer friend or lover. Loyalty doesn’t always mean being a puppy dog and taking in all secrets like a vault and being a wall for others to talk to. Be careful you aren’t abused for your loyalty, but make sure you are respected and trusted rather than walked all over and talked at like you’re now their free therapist.
5. Do not be afraid to speak your mind
If you see someone hurt or racist or misogynistic comments that you disagree with, speak up. It is important though to be aware of your tone and the way you do speak up because you don’t want to yell or your voice be undermined, so say something calmly like, “I actually disagree and think….” Yes, this may hurt how you are seen or you may be more valued, but none-the-less speaking up for something you believe in is worth it, because life is too short to watch people bully others while you stand on the sidelines. Sometimes doing nothing says you think it is okay.
6. Be Intelligent
Think logically about your actions and voice. Whether you are making a fast-pace decision or thinking long term in to the future, be logical and rational about what could possibly happen. Use your intelligence of common sense and book-smarts throughout the day. Being impulsive isn’t a bad thing, but you can be intelligent and impulsive, so make sure and have a quick think before rash decisions or arguments.
7. Be Confident
The less talented person can be taken more serious if they have a vibrant confidence about them, and the shy but extremely more skilled individual could be overlooked with a shy and demure persona. The same can also be said for men being more attracted to the woman confident in herself. Confidence is not just a quality you are born with but a strength of mind and belief in yourself.
8. Genuinely Care about Others
One of the best qualities in the whole world is being able to put others before you. This selfless act shows love, care, strength, courage, etc. The world becomes a better place when even one person cares for another. This trait is admired in relationships, the workplace, in humanity, etc. Care for others, everyone has their own story with their own struggles they face everyday and a simple act of love is contagious.

The intelligent and genuine Marie Cammal graced Ladies Magazine with an inside view on
The intelligent and genuine Marie Cammal graced Ladies Magazine with an inside view on running her own NGO Sok Sabay. The day to day is never easy but very rewarding to see the lives of Cambodian children evolving into successful and smart Cambodian adults who are given kindness and opportunity to further their lives. Marie Cammal has a great gift of knowing what others are capable. She is an incredible woman in business in Cambodia and someone the Ladies team admires greatly for her courage and humble love.
Can you tell me what you do?
I have a shelter for mistreated children, so people who have been enslaved, abandoned, starved or in chains by the parents. It’s mostly domestic violence and the children come to my NGO. It’s like a boarding school. Kids go outside but also inside for school in a shelter. My NGO is called Sok Sabay. I have been running the shelter for over 20 years now. SO the first student I rescued now has her bachelor’s degree, 4 year lawyer degree, tourism, and one from rape. So I am quite happy.
How did you get to that level of success? How did you build it up?
I trust on their capacity. They are very clever so I push them to study. They study very hard during the day and also at night. They have math, biology, physics, chemistry and study until 8pm. They have holidays but otherwise they stay in the center. I run it like a big family, so the big teach the small; the small teach the smaller. So we are very open to music, classical music. Most of them play an instrument from clarinet, drums, piano, violin, recorder. We do local arts and have an art exhibition once a year. We are very connected to Singapore and get lots of funds through Singapore. We go once a year to a charity night in Singapore.
How did you come up with the idea?
It’s a long, long story, but I spent a few years in a refugee camp so an Asian refugee camp holding people from Laos, Cambodian, Vietnam, but to the Khmer refugee camp. So I really felt the Khmer needed my help of training as a nurse and tropical medicine. I learned Khmer at the university of London, so I spent a few years in South East Asia for refugee people then I studied to come to Cambodia and was back and forth from Cambodia for over two decades
And it’s just grown since then?
Yes, well I don’t take anymore. My last rescue were just one year ago. Last year I rescued 15 more children from the rubbage dump and that’s too much. I like to rescue one and increase the integrity of the shelter before rescuing another one. But last year was special because I went to a new rubbage dump where kids were starving, mistreated, parents with a lot of alcoholism. So I rescued them, but now I am very busy with Laos program at the moment and cannot rescue any more kids. Most of my children go to university. You have to push the students to give them a better life. They cannot go back to square one. They come from very extreme poverty, extreme domestic violence. If you give education to the youngest, they can change that community, they can change that family, they can buy a house and land for their parents and their parents can die in dignity. It is really to slow down the process of poverty in Cambodia. A better future, responsible citizens, they can vote, they can be part of the society and not put in apartheid. The poor people have no voice, but once you have education you have a voice as a woman.
For people who don’t know about this, what can they do to help?
Well of course funds are the best. If we have funds we can promote more education. Like, last year we were struggling, so we had lesser sports and things. If we don’t have money, we can’t fund our program. No work is silly; you have to be the best at what you are doing. They need to learn to push themselves to be better and want to be better. I am less like a mother and more like a coach.
What advice to you have for other women who want to do what you are doing?
You need lots of courage, lots of self confidence, lots of strength, and a little bit of crazy. (not sure how much *chuckles*). You know when you start you never know where you will end up. And when you start you are like I cannot do that, but when the children are there then you just do, you have to push for her, you have to push for him, and eventually you have to push for them. When you get old it gets harder because you are tired
What makes me happy is when they come to see me, they have a job, and you become like the moon. You become their uncle. And when they come back to see you once or twice every year, or two years because they know I am strong, I am for them, I will never cheat them, so I am like an uncle. I am their uncle. It’s kind of cool you know? Because then they get me thinking Wow! I have achieved a lot. Some of them are taller than me *laughs*. It’s an exhausting job and I work every day, but at the end of the day I am happy. You have to fight not only for you but for the mothers, the children. etc. You have to tell and teach people they are strong enough to stand for who they are. Help people to be strong, especially female. Start small, fight for yourself and fight for your people and then you will succeed. For me, where there’s a will there’s a way anywhere in the world.
Survival Tips for Female Entrepreneurs
How to get to the top
How to get to the top
1. Learn to say ‘Yes’
It’s not everyday that opportunities are presented on a silver platter so when it does happen, don’t be afraid to say yes. You can always figure out the who, what, when, where, how, later. Never let fear hold you back. Be open to new opportunities, you never know where it will lead.
2. Be Visible
Get yourself out there, get your product out there. If you won’t toot your own horn, who will? Let social media help you in getting the word out. Tap on the viral effect for optimal result
3. Identify Your Goal
Set accessible goals every step along the way, as well as, the timeframe within which to get there. This helps chart your overall growth and prevents you from getting derailed along the way.
4. Trust Your Gut Instinct
If something sounds too good to be true, then it probably is. Tune in to your inner sanity for a rescue line. Check with industry insiders for credibility of would-be collaborators or potential business partners
5. Have Fun
Yes, you work real hard but don’t forget to have fun while you’re at it. Otherwise, you’re more susceptible to burning out before arriving at the finish line.
