Now is the best time for women to start their own business. With the amazing advances in technology and working patterns, we can create our own American Dream. And since it's the Fourth of July (Happy Birthday, America!), I'm going to tell you four amazing reasons why!
There is a huge shift in America right now. Every day more and more people are starting their own businesses and leaving the 9-5 behind. One of the biggest reasons for this is how accessible entrepreneurship is.
Entrepreneurs don't necessarily need to attend college. You can start working online today, using the vast resources on the internet and following your passion. I'm actually going to give you a list of jobs you can start up right away to start making an income online.
But opening your own business comes with its own set of precautions. You need to ask yourself some questions… and answer them honestly. A bit of introspection, and checking your finances, can save a lot of heartbreak later on.
People who start their own businesses tend to be respected at a much higher level than those working a static job. Entrepreneurs also need to be good at networking, both in person and online. And finally, I'm going to tell you how you can start getting amazing and legitimate testimonials from your friends and family!
