Even if you can’t start big, taking small steps will help get you there.
“Women are starting more businesses because we have never been more educated, we have never been more networked, we have never had more access to technology and have never had more access to capital,” said a spokesperson from Inspiring Rare Birds which is running a two day conference to help support female entrepreneurs in June.

“Women in particular are starting businesses because they are searching for more flexibility in their working and home lives, both pre and post starting families.”

4. Write a business plan. The business plan is the place to iron out details. It also provides you with a go-to place if you find yourself wondering what to do next or which strategy to employ.
