The number of women-owned businesses increased nearly 3,000% since 1972 according to the “2018 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report” commissioned by American Express. Not only that but between 2017 and 2018 women started an average of 1,821 new businesses per day in the U.S. with women now making up a whopping 40% of new entrepreneurs, it’s clear that more women are turning to entrepreneurship than ever before – Forbes Magazine

To be able to charge what they are worth
To have more control over their future
To advance more quickly and on their own terms
To follow their passion
