Corporate Chicks Fly

It’s An Epidemic
The surge of women leaving the corporate world is now being called The New Women’s Movement.  Women are feeling overworked, unappreciated, and unfulfilled. More appealing than “having it all” is  ditching the corporate ladder and office politics. Frankly, many women now believe corporations are    inherently flawed and limiting.

What Women Want
High on the list of what women want is freedom, flexibility, fulfillment and being in alignment with    their personal values.

Upward Trends
A significant number of women are leaving the corporate world, now being called “opting-out”, to    become their own bosses. Three recent U.S. trends confirm this movement and the success women  entrepreneurs are finding… even during a recession.

  • The number of women-owned businesses grew to 11.3 million, five times faster than average
  • Business revenue for women was 8% higher than average
  • Women are now majority owners in 38% of businesses

Along with a number of other upward trends, it’s easy to see why women-owned businesses and the  people they employ are now being called an economic engine. Go Women!

I was there once myself. After nearly 20 years in a successful corporate career, in 2002 I ditched my corporate job and became an entrepreneur. It wasn’t an easy decision, yet one I wish I’d made sooner.

My own experience has made me passionate about helping women just like you make the transition from employee to entrepreneur. I’d be delighted to help you take a smart first step and make a savvy decision about leaving your corporate career to become an entrepreneur.

Call or email me to schedule a Are You Ready?  free consultation. We’ll explore whether you’re ready to fly the corporate nest now, in the future, or if it’s not a good choice.  I look forward to talking with you soon!
