Women Entrepreneurs Celebrate Women in Small Business MonthATLANTA –October 16, 2007 – Female entrepreneurs are taking the economy by storm. Not only do they own approximately 9.1 million small businesses in the United States, but they are also starting them at twice the rate of their male counterparts. October is Women in Small Business Month, and hundreds of women from Girls With Goals are joining in the celebration.
“Women In Business Month unites the tens of thousands of women entrepreneurs around the globe,” explains Erin Hurry, president and founder of Girls With Goals. “It is a special and important occasion for powerful and visionary women to gain strength and inspiration from each other.”
Founded in 2002, Girls With Goals (www.girlswithgoals.com) helps women-owned businesses gain more market share by offering the business tools needed to empower women to start and/or expand their business. Members also have access to free workshops, an online community, online store set-up, G-Cards, Business Resource Center, G-Fitness and G-Towns in their local community.
Nationwide, women-owned businesses have grown steadily in each of the last ten years. Women in Small Business Month calls attention to the success-minded individuals who are dedicated to igniting their business and, according to Hurry, fueling their souls. “They’re women too independent to oblige by the 9-5 corporate world, women who value and love their independence in creation, women dedicated to fulfilling their roles as both mother and professional, and women who are not afraid to make their own mistakes and fearless in picking up the pieces,” she says
Hurry emphasizes on the importance of recognizing the success of women in entrepreneurship. “Becoming a female entrepreneur does not only reinforce the importance of a woman’s position in society,” she says. “But it also makes greater progress towards overall economic and social development. Women are responsible for the achievements of increased economic growth, improved productivity, improved distribution of income, and improved employment rate, that’s why we need to celebrate these Girls With Goals.”
Women-owned firms in the United States provide jobs for 18.5 million people and generate sales of nearly $2.38 trillion annually. Women now make up 41 percent of the individuals with a net worth of $500,000 or more.
