In the past few decades women have been steadily gaining a presence as successful business leaders; and role models around the world. This surge continues to inspire other women entrepreneurs; as they follow their passions and forge ahead bringing excitement and change to our world.
Women entrepreneurs have had to overcome many obstacles and discrimination to obtain success, unlike those of their male counterparts. It wasn’t until 1974 that the Equal Credit Opportunity Act allowed women the right to get credit in their own name.
However, these struggles have provided them with the tenacity for change, a desire for improvement, and the ability to control their own destiny. These women are not only making changes in their lives but are helping communities around the world.
The State-Owned Business Report, commissioned by American Express reported an estimated 9.1 million women-owned businesses in the United States generating over $1.4 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 7.9 million people, as of 2014. This is an astounding rate increase of 68% since 1997. Women entrepreneurs around the world regardless of their age, income or education are initiating successful businesses at this very moment.
Join the movement, follow your passion and become the change the world needs. Empowered women empower lives.
