For the last couple of years, more women have been opening businesses than men. Most of them create small, home-based businesses. This isn’t surprising because, since 1970, a quiet revolution has been taking place when women were seen leaving home and entering the workforce, but now they are seen going back home to become entrepreneurs.
Owning a business benefits women, especially moms, for they can set their own hours, pursue things that interest them and work from the comfort of their homes. The business sector is no longer male-dominated. Statistics show that there has been a significant growth of women-owned businesses and this is linked with old issues confronting female workers. Issues such as gender inequality, gender pay gap, and career opportunities are among the issues that contribute to lower job satisfaction.
Experts see that women do things differently in the business sector, and this is very welcome. Many career-oriented women view the corporate world as flawed, limiting their potentials and capabilities. Since they need funds to start their own business, most of them start with small ventures.
The good thing is that you can see a good number of them being successful in their startup. If you are also thinking of opening a new business, you should read these facts about businesses owned by women who dare took the risk. It is certainly a numbers game, and check out how ladies fare in the business sector.
