So many female entrepreneurs feel the need to hustle harder to close the gender gap, to be the perfect partner, friend, daughter, employee, etc.—while also growing their business. The burnout that comes with that is tragically under-addressed.
For proof, just look at the fact that the #EntrepreneurBurnout hashtag has just 100 posts, while #EntrepreneurLifestyle has 5 million, or #EntreprenuerHustle has 15K+. It’s time to stop glorifying the hustle hard mentality and instead, address this mental health challenge that many female business owners face.

One of the most popular mindset topics among new entrepreneurs is imposter syndrome, which makes this a powerful topic and hashtag to weave into your content. Use it to reach the entrepreneurs who are looking for support in navigating this challenging feeling.
This entrepreneur hashtag represents another common business goal—to be your own boss. As a coach, you’re the CEO of your organization, and you can teach others to do the same, no matter their business or industry.

You can also use this one to search out potential clients or relevant conversations on Instagram. Find those budding entrepreneurs and engage with authentic comments and shares.
I love this play on the traditional term, go-getter. Use this hashtag in posts that explain how to set better goals or how you help clients set—and achieve—their big, scary goals. You’ll reach clients that are ready to take action with this one, so don’t forget to bring it into your strategy.
If you’re running a business just to run a business, you won’t succeed. Just like if you’re posting on social media just to check a box, your content will read as inauthentic (and boring). You need to bring intention to everything you do to make it more real, engaging, attracting, and to stay motivated. #IntentionalBusiness will tell followers and potential clients that you’re purpose-driven—and will help you reach entrepreneurs who are also running their business with purpose.
Using Instagram effectively is all about building a community, making followers feel like they belong. By adding the word “club” to your hashtag, you invite new potential clients into your community.
Searching this hashtag can also help you find determined women in the club that still might need support along their journey.
Use this entrepreneur hashtag to share wins—both your own and your client’s. If you reach a milestone, jump over a roadblock, or simply show up on a really hard day, share it with your audience to motivate them to do the same. When you do, use this hashtag, because that’s what #SheConquers is all about: the collective female business community rising up and breaking down barriers side by side.
If you focus heavily on mindset in your business coaching, this hashtag is a great one to add to your repertoire. Women searching or following this hashtag are likely thinking about and already working on their mindset as a female CEO—when they find you, they’ll see what you can help them take that even further.
Just as a rising tide raises all ships, successful female leaders aren’t competition—they’re our community, our advocates. If your client is living their best life and you are too, let’s share that abundance. Use this when sharing photos of you and your business besties or when sharing client success stories!
