‘Do not stand in the line to get a job, start your own thing’

Jordanian entrepreneur Penelope Shihab has been listed as one of 100 powerful and influential Arabs around the world by Arabian Business magazine. She gives a lot of credit to her country and people, including Bedouins whose indigenous ways have given her ideas that evolved into a line of biotech productions that, she says, are making a good success in Britain, where she has settled with her business. She believes that Jordan has a lot to offer to entrepreneurs. “I cannot say that I could find all the facilities in the country. Here in Jordan, we do have very good education; good schools, and good universities, all of which are good resources,” she said. To her, the country is a good place to start entrepreneurial activities because the Kingdom “is good for research and development, we have talented people and skilled professionals that allow us to be the kitchenette for start-up projects in the region.” Being abroad, the businesswoman misses certain things in her home country. She says Jordanian women, unlike their peers in the West, are privileged to have supportive families. “Women in Jordan do not realise how lucky we are! We have our families’ continuous support in getting good education and to secure good living conditions. While in the Western world, families tend to be less supportive. We should take advantage of this and use it to grow. “In my opinion, women in Jordan are very strong, very determined, and very persistent! I encourage every Jordanian woman to find her passion and to start her own thing; do not stand in queue waiting for job opportunities or the government.”    Source: Jordan Times
