According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, as of 2015, there are more than 9.4 million women-owned businesses in the United States, employing nearly 7.9 million people and contributing $1.4 trillion into the economy. When it comes to starting and growing a business, women entrepreneurs are crushing it.

- Listen to advice, but make your own decisions.
- Go global early [not in the article but Laurel Delaney’s advice :-)]
- Go for it!
- Be confident.
Learn what women entrepreneurs have done to crush it.
