See Published Stories

Everyone has to start somewhere. Some entrepreneurs start with a bang, quitting their jobs and diving into business head first. For others, the loss of a job or a personal crisis lead to an idea born from necessity (a need from income) and entrepreneurship finds them. Share your business start-up story to help encourage other aspiring entrepreneurs. You get to talk about your business (and include a link) and feel good knowing your success might encourage another woman to go ahead and take the entrepreneurial plunge, too.
