Happy National Women's Small Business Month
Ok guys, did you know that #October is National Women's Small Business Month?🤷♀️
No, it's not a made up holiday - it's for real. And honestly it should probably be a 12 month thing (js). But since we only get a month, let's make the most of it, right?
Here are some stats you should know:
▶️In 1972, women only owned 4.6% of all businesses in the United States. As of 2019, women owned 42% of all businesses.
▶️There are nearly 13 million women-owned businesses in the United States, employing 9.4 million workers and generating revenue of $1.9 trillion.
When you own your own business it's not 9-5, it's 24/7 and you love every minute of it. (Yes, even those sales calls, Cheryl Burget!)
