Women Entrepreneurs – Resources

Women entrepreneurs are driving many businesses today, in industries as diverse as technology, medical devices, beauty and skin care lines, and more! We offer resources for women entrepreneurs, to help you use your hidden talents and ideas to start a business or expand your existing one.

Have you always dreamed of starting your own business, being your own boss, and working on a product or service you’re truly passionate about? If so, you’ll want to read our blogs from women entrepreneurs to hear their stories, get ideas and advice, and become inspired by their successes.

Whether you are looking for ideas for a home-based business selling products online, or you need advice on whether to incorporate, you’ll find resources for women-owned businesses here. Maybe the idea of starting your own business seems daunting, but we even have advice on how you can take a short-cut to becoming a successful entrepreneur by buying an established business from a retiring business owner. How’s that for thinking outside the box?

No matter what future path you’re mulling over, we are sure to have experts in our WEW networking groups that have “been there, done that” and can lend a helping hand, solid guidance or just a sympathetic ear.

Browse our resources for women entrepreneurs in this section, and be sure to join our group for more networking opportunities and advice for women entrepreneurs as new initiatives, blogs and information are posted.
