Women-Owned Businesses

Women-owned businesses rock!

Women Owned Businesses

Here’s some fascinating statistics about women-owned businesses from the National Women’s Business Council. There are 7.8 million women-owned businesses in U.S. and nearly 2/3 of those businesses have full-time paid employees. In a ten year period, women-owned firms grew 44%, which is twice as fast as that of men-owned firms. What’s interesting, and true for me, is that 77% of women founded their own businesses, and of those, 72% had never owned a business before. Also intriguing is that 58% of women small-business owners don’t have a bachelor’s degree.

Women, you rock! I applaud the courage it has taken to make all of this happen.

I am certain there are more of you who want to make this shift. What’s stopping you from joining this amazing contingent of women?
