There are dozens of types of businesses and business expertise in our world. Whether you’re an artist or organic herb farmer, a software programmer, or an entrepreneur with a great social idea to better the world – you always need a plan. It’s hard to do meaningful work without the financial backing to make changes or grow and you can’t do that without a plan! Between the cost of materials, equipment, space, employees, marketing, and a host of other ‘little things,’ the average independent businesswoman may go out of business within its first year of operations, causing hundreds of fantastic ideas and inventions to gather dust, without understanding best business practices.
With most women owned businesses, decisions for what business to start or grow is realized based on what they already know about. You will have access to others in your field to share ideas, networks and cost saving measures that you may never have thought of. You are on a level field with all other members. Every member has free reign to use the common tools, materials and templates and receive support for the efforts that you put into your plan. All we ask is that each of you respect the efforts of everyone, follow through with your agreements and prepare a short quote or video that we can use after your experience that will highlight what you learned during this process.
