Women have created more businesses and contributed more than $40 Billion Dollars in revenue over the last 10 years. This unique trend is not really a trend, but is now becoming the standard. There are more women in business than ever before and across all demographics. However, with this increase, also comes the reality that there is a need for more foundational support in order to be successful.
