To quote the International Women’s Day website, “An equal world is an enabled world.” So, we’re taking a moment on this incredibly important day to honor that message and highlight some of our amazing female entrepreneurs who’ve made their own way. They’re out there breaking glass ceilings and showing the world that they can do anything, in any industry, in any location. And, we dig that.
International Women’s Day 2020
Rather than settling for a seat at a table that didn’t suit their dreams, these female entrepreneurs went out and made their own table.
They’re ambitious. They’re hardworking. Frankly, they’re pretty damn inspiring.
Whether they’re occupying a male-dominated space, defying expectations or simply being the fearless entrepreneurs we know them to be (or all three!), they’re making strides toward an equal world simply by doing what they love. They’re out there defining success on their own terms — and they’re thriving.
In fact, because of these fierce fempreneurs, there are now 12.3 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., generating $1.3 trillion each year. Even more impressive, there are 114% more female entrepreneurs than there were 20 years ago. And, women of color started 64% of businesses last year.
Needless to say, women aren’t going anywhere. If anything, they’re proving one thing that’s abundantly clear:
Entrepreneurship has no gender.
There’s still a ways to go in order to create a truly equal world. But with amazing women at the helm like these fempreneurs, anything is possible.
To all the bold women out there making their own way, we applaud you this International Women’s Day.
Your devotion to your dreams and hard work is shining a light on just how amazing women are. And, if you’re a boss lady who’s just starting out, know that there are other female powerhouses out there who want to see you succeed.
A rising tide lifts all ships, and in the world of female entrepreneurship, nothing is more inspiring than empowered women empowering women.
Happy International Women’s Day 2020, gals. Because of you, our future is looking mighty bright.
