Didn't you know that women make the world go 'round?! October is National Women's Small Business Month and it's the perfect time to support women-owned businesses and celebrate the achievements of female entrepreneurs everywhere.
There are so many interesting facts about women-owned businesses, but here are a few worth highlighting. As of this year:
The U.S. has 12.3 million women-owned businesses (compared to only 402,000 in 1972!)
Women-owned businesses generate 1.8 trillion per year in the U.S.
40% of U.S. businesses are women-owned.
There are 114% more women entrepreneurs than there were 20 years ago.
How can you support small women-owned businesses? Very easily:
Buy from them
Promote their business on social media
Send them a referral
Celebrate their successes
Here are some of my very favorite small women-owned businesses. Some of the hardest working women you will meet. Check them out!
