Small Businesses Need Your Advice
December 17, 2008
Are women more entrepreneurial than men? We’ve had twice as many women apply than men for the Small Business Stimulus Package so far.
Of course, it’s by no means a statistical indicator that women are more likely to start a small business, perhaps they are just more willing to share the details of their current or future business. Whatever the reason, we have some women who need your help with their business ideas.
Virtual Assistant Business – Dee was recently laid off from her job and is in the middle of starting her own virtual assistant business to support her family.
Craft Supply Business – Sara has identified a potential need for a craft supply store in her hometown and is building her marketing plan.
Both of these ladies want to build a business of their own, and they are both enterprises that could potentially help create jobs in a time of economic turmoil. Sara will create business for her suppliers and may need to hire someone to help out in her store. Once Dee has customers for her business, she would like to hire other administrative assistants that have been laid off.
Please stop by the small business section and offer these enterprising women some words of advice or encouragement!
