In spite of a few ups and downs around 2008, gold is now hitting a high point. It represents one of the most stable investments because it is always worth something. Financial experts, investors, entrepreneurs, banks and other financial institutions estimate that in just a few years the value of gold will increase to nearly $2,500 an ounce. Whereas various stocks are always at the whim of an unsteady market, gold is solid—especially when you’re actually investing in solid gold. That’s the important thing to remember when considering how gold benefits female investors and entrepreneurs in particular.

Setting up a Solid Gold Portfolio

In 2001, an ounce of gold was worth around $260; in 2011, it was nearly $2,000 per ounce, and its potential continues to grow for very simple reasons. Gold is tangible. You can easily touch it, see it, smell it, even taste it if you want. Gold isn’t as transitory as other currencies. Women who choose to base their portfolios around gold are investing in something that won’t disappear or become worthless. There are industries that pay a premium for gold. This means that the woman who chooses to think outside the piggy bank and invest in gold has all the capital and leverage she needs for any entrepreneurial venture.

It sounds a little trite, but the fact of the matter is that women know jewelry. They know when a necklace, ring or bracelet has a valuable setting. They know when a piece of jewelry is really worth something—and yes, many women begin investing in gold through jewelry. That knowledge is far-reaching, however. From there, many female entrepreneurs diversify their gold portfolios by researching all the different types of gold available to them.

They begin purchasing gold bars and coins as well as jewelry. They go online and learn about trading gold. They set up gold IRAs to protect their current investments while buying even more. The really amazing thing about women investors and entrepreneurs who opt for the golden path is the way they come together, work together, and grow together. This sense of sisterhood and teamwork is undoubtedly one of the main reasons why they’re set to outgrow their male counterparts by the time gold reaches its stellar price in 2014.

Merging Sisterhood and Success

There are myriad companies founded by women, for women; many of them began with just a bit of gold. Women with an entrepreneurial spirit banded together, pooled their resources, and just like that, they started their own portfolios. A little jewelry, some gold coins, some brilliant trades, and suddenly they’re financial geniuses. They have money, revenue, security, and the knowledge to help other women who want to become entrepreneurs, too.

So many people eschew the idea of investing in solid gold. Because of the risks they take and their keen insights into the future of their investments, more female entrepreneurs strengthen their portfolios to the point where they’ve become the queens of the financial world.
