Posted by on Apr 11 2006

According to a recently study, women-owned businesses without employees grew TWICE as fast (18%) as all small businesses without employees. You can see the study findings here:


Way to go! 🙂

Also, the SBA has created a website just for women entrepreneurs:

    Hi there! I found your web site and now your blog. I’m in Canada and like you I have just started a blog to see if it works. Let me know.

    I do small business consulting and am self employed, too. Now I have a disability in that I’ve had many strokes etc and havent’t worked for more than a year. Thank heavens for computers! I can type and the strokes affected my body not my mind or my positive attitude.

    I’d like to stat in touch. May I?

    There are a few typos in my comment. I should have done a preview! Now I know.

    I was reading your blog and wanted to thank you for sharing your ideas about women in business. I own a business as well and have found I have to have time each day to intentionally focus on the good things, on my goals, and on my effectiveness with my clients.
    Your article reminded me of a conference I attended for “Women In
    Technology” (WITI) in Los Angeles, CA last year. At that conference I had
    the awesome opportunity to meet Marcia Wieder.

    She and I spoke about overcoming fears to achieve our dreams.
    Although my time with her was brief, I learned from “America’s Dream Coach”
    about the importance of stepping out of my comfort zone so I could achieve
    my dreams. At that time I really did not know who this precious woman was
    but later learned she had been on Oprah and PBS-TV.

    Marcia’s brief touch on my life made a great impact on me. Recently I
    discovered her blog at http://www.dreamcoachdirect.com/ and
    a Maui Dream Retreat she is giving away!!! The Maui Dream
    Retreat includes a week in Maui with Marcia, roundtrip airfare, and accomodations!!
    I thought you might be interested in what she had to say as well.

    May all of our dreams come true!!

    Hi, Trudy and Gina,

    Thanks for your comments!

    I’m glad you’re finding the information in this blog helpful.

    And I agree with Marcia: we often have big dreams AND big fears, all combined together. I tell my clients, “It’s a package deal.”
