The 10 Best Websites For Woman Entrepreneurs, 2013
Despite the fact that the U.S. boasts over 8.6 million women-led businesses with a cumulative $1.3 trillion in revenues (not to mention that the number of women-owned businesses is growing at one and a half times the national average), one of the most oft-repeated challenges of women entrepreneurs is a perceived lack of support for their business ambitions.
Notes that Casserly does not believe in the supposed lack of support for women entrepreneurs, suggesting that perhaps the myth originates in the fact that women are reluctant to seek out assistance.
Women should include on their lists resources that are either neutral or geared towards men originally.
Drawing from the "100 Best Websites for Women," Casserly offers up the 10 essential websites for women who run their own business:
- The Boss Network is a group of business women who assist each other through networking, events, and discussions.
