Inspiring Information about Woman Entrepreneurs

by admin on June 8, 2011

Woman are more and more becoming entrepreneurs.  Over the past few decades more woman are looking towards the path of entrepreneurship and pursuing their dreams of owning a business.

But why do woman strive to become entrepreneurs?  Is it because they just want something to do or do they feel a need to network with other woman?  What is it that drives woman to pursue becoming business owners?  More and more woman seem to be looking for that balance or harmony between their worklife and their family/personal lives.  They want their goals and aspirations to fit their lifestyle.

  • According to the American Express OPEN report, click here to read more:
    * As of 2011, it is estimated that there are over 8.1 million women-owned businesses in the United States, generating nearly $1.3 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 7.7 million people.
  •   *  Between 1997 and 2011, when the number of businesses in the United States increased by 34%, the number of women-owned firms increased by 50% – a rate 1 1/2 times the national average.

These are some very interesting statistics and very inspiring to women who are considering taking the jump into the world of entrepreneurship.

So now you can see why I am inspired to work with other businesses, women entrepreneurs to help other woman find their dreams.

I would like to share this great video from Savor the Success, a premium network for women entrepreneurs.

Here is a perfect example of what I just talked about above.  Here is a post from Entrepreneur that talks about a mom filling a need in the marketplace for personal hygiene products for boys.  How an Atlanta entrepreneur Marie Gelin launched Stinky Boyz, a line of sports-themed natural shampoos and body washes.

Why? “Boys are a truly deprived market,” Gelin says. Most boys share their deodorant and body washes with their father or end up using their mother’s products, she says. The inspiration for a solid product came from Gelin’s experience with her son, who would squirt her shampoo and body wash all over the shower: “a major waste.”
