Women are stepping up to own their own businesses. It a phenomenon happening more and more, and we couldn’t be happier about it. In fact, between 2014 and 2019, the number of women-owned businesses grew 3.9% annually, while the number owned by minority women grew by 7%, according to a report by American Express. The numbers between 2018 and 2019 grew 5% (all women-owned) and 10% (women of color).  

This is why companies like Office Depot OfficeMax encourage all entrepreneurs — and specifically women entrepreneurs — to stay ahead of the curve and educate themselves on how to better enhance their businesses.
