Survival Guide for the Woman Entrepreneur/Small-Business Owner
More than 28 percent of United States businesses are owned by women. These businesses, defined as organizations with 51 percent of shares owned by a female, have doubled their rate of increase over the past three decades; However, only three percent of these businesses have hit a recorded revenue of $1 Million.
Though economic forecasts may call for further downsizing, most female business owners have reason to be optimistic. Independent, women-owned businesses employ almost eight percent of the total American workforce and have a combined annual economic impact of almost $2.86 Trillion.
