•Women business owners contribute nearly $3 trillion to the U.S. economy and create or maintain 23 million jobs.

• If women-owned businesses were their own country, they would have the fifth largest GDP in the world, ahead of countries including France, the United Kingdom, and Italy. If women-owned businesses were their own country, they would have a greater GDP than Canada, India and Vietnam combined.

• Women-owned firms with revenues of $1 million or higher are more likely than other women-owned businesses to market their products and services nationally.

• Women-owned firms are growing at twice the rate of all firms. • One in 11 adult women is an entrepreneur.

Women make 80 percent of all purchasing decisions in the United States, and women entrepreneurs exercise that powerful purchasing power both at home and in their businesses.

 

I think this is great news! No matter what anyone says, stay focused on your goals; not your trials and tribulations.
