The number of female entrepreneurs in America is growing exponentially. Right now there are over 114% more women entrepreneurs than there were just twenty years ago! Over the years I’ve been inspired by a lot of women who have built their own businesses and offered guidance and support to other female entrepreneurs.
I truly believe that the most important part of being an entrepreneur is being of service to others. I put together a list of the 13 most incredible female entrepreneurs that you may want to follow (I just LOVE each and every one of them!).
