Women in Business & Entrepreneurship



Never in history have women been more successful or more empowered than they are today. The growing prevalence of female entrepreneurship of all races didn’t happen by accident.  It’s proof that legislation targeted at women and minority small business owners had an effect. The small business jobs act of 2010 and the Women’s equity and contracting act both of which seek to help businesses headed up by women win more government contracts.  It helped to put women owned businesses and minority owned businesses at a competitive edge.  The progress for minority women has been particularly swift.  With business ownership skyrocketing 265% since 1997.  Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and take a leap of faith for your future.

The internet offers you a wealth of opportunities to start your own business, often with little to no cost.  By focusing on your strengths you’ll be able to build a client roster and get your online business started.  These businesses can be done full or part-time.
