The Power of Women in Business
According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, women own over 11.6 million firms in the United States. These 11.6 million firms employ almost 9 million people and have generated $1.7 trillion in sales as of 2017.
That is a significant portion of the US economic pie!
With that said, women-owned firms comprise only 39% of privately-held firms. Women are making progress in the world of business, but there is definitely work left to be done to boost the number of women in business ownership and leadership roles.
There are a variety of resources designed to help women aspiring to be small business owners overcome hurdles, whether it be a lack of funding, limited education, lack of training and mentorship, and so on. This article will outline those resources so you can find what you need to build a successful business.
