(Ebook) What Are You Waiting For? A Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs on Starting, Growing, and Managing a Successful Business Nick Bowersox | February 28th, 2017

Women start over 1,000 new businesses every day in the United States. During the last decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown five times faster than the national average, according to the 2016 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report from American Express Open.

According to American Express Open’s 2016 Report: 11.3 million U.S. businesses are currently owned by women. Together, these businesses employ nearly 9 million people and generate more than $1.6 trillion in revenue. One in five firms with revenue of $1 million or more is woman-owned.

About half of the 200,000 designers and writers who work on crowdSPRING are women building their freelancing businesses.

It’s a great time to be a woman entrepreneur.

To celebrate this, we partnered with Jill Salzman, creator of The Founding Moms, to create an ebook for women entrepreneurs that want to start a new business or grow an existing business while raising a family. We met Jill about six years ago and have been big fans of her work with The Founding Moms Community ever since. Jill’s energy and drive to help women around the world is remarkable, and we’re thrilled to work on this ebook with her.

This book will help you learn how to:

  • Discover your great business idea (Chapter 1)
  • Measure whether the market is big enough (Chapter 2)
  • Name your new company (Chapter 3)
  • Get a great logo (Chapter 4)
