Women owned businesses are on the rise faster than in the past. I think it’s partially because women feel more emboldened than ever before. It’s also because owning your own business allows for some flexibility that an hourly job doesn’t always give you. It’s also a way to innovate and bring new ideas to life.
Inc. magazine “Women are opening up new small businesses at a faster pace than men. But they’re facing higher hurdles to making them successful than their male counterparts.
About one in five small businesses majority female-owned, and the number of such firms also grew by 22% between 2007 and 2015, according to a recent report published by the Federal Reserve Banks of New York and Kansas City.
More than 970,000 small firms now have majority female ownership. The Fed defines a small business as a company with 500 or fewer employees. That’s far fewer than the 3 million male-run firms, a number that grew by about 6% over the same period.” Not more than the number of businesses being opened by men, but still so many more than even as few as 10 years ago.
As we posted before, Central Comm has noticed that more of the calls for virtual receptionist and e-commerce support are coming in from women owned businesses. The National Association of Women Business Owners is growing and innovating along with the women who own these growing companies. They say ” I am amazed by how innovative my NAWBO sisters are in their pursuits. They have launched some incredibly fresh and exciting business concepts, products and services that are so on the mark—and even ahead of their time—in today’s world. They inspire me to be more innovative—to believe that good enough never is and to continuously push the envelope—when it comes to my own business, what I offer and even how I interact with my customers. There’s no one way or best time to be innovative; it can happen at any time in ways large and small.”
As a company which employs both men and women, and has always had a health respect for the contributions that women make in our company, we applaud women and hope to see both men and women starting new and innovative businesses in the coming year. We hope you chose us as one of your trusted business partners.
