Ladies: Start Your Business (vroom, vroom)!!

(Title inspired by Danica Patrick's recent Indianapolis 500 performance) Women's Business Centers, such as the Center for Women and Enterprise in Providence, RI, have allowed women, many of whom come from households of modest means, to get a new business started. These centers first started in the late 1980s and are now available in 33 states and the District of Columbia. They provide considerable help with the paperwork often associated with the start of a new business and often are willing to aid even after the business has somewhat made a start. Funding comes from both government (particularly Small Business Administration) and private sources.

If you are a woman oriented toward being your own boss or, for that matter, a man with a wife or love interest who has a desire to run her own business, you may want to check with a local Chamber of Commerce to see if there is a Women's Business Center in your town or nearby.
