Women In Networking

Support - Success - Sisterhood

We’re here to talk about how women are transforming the world of business and making waves in the process. Women started 49% of new businesses in the United States in 2021, up from 28% in 2019. With over a 20% increase of women opening businesses in just two years, women taking the stage and we are here for it. 

Women are now opening businesses at twice the rate of men and women-owned firms employ more than 19 million people in the U.S., according to the Small Business Administration. There has never been greater opportunity for women to start their own business while creating jobs for others. Women networking is the natural way for us as women, our tribe, our village, our community is what makes us who we are and builds our foundation on unmatched support and strength. 

Women take more calculated risks than men on a regular basis, and are more likely to pursue business opportunities when presented with them. According to a study conducted by the Women’s Business Center, women are more likely to take a chance on something that could be a good opportunity, even if it is risky. Women will also take their time weighing the pros and cons of an idea or proposal before moving forward with it. This approach could be attributed to the fact that women are less likely than men to want their decisions questioned or criticized by others, so they tend not to share their plans until they’re ready for them to become public knowledge – often after they’ve already made up their minds about what different choices would lead them toward success.

Women control 51% of total U.S. wealth, which amounts to $14 trillion in assets. Women are less likely than men to have a traditional retirement plan (401(k)), but they still control $7 trillion in these assets and $5 trillion in real estate assets. Women also own more stocks and mutual funds than men do: about 37% of all stock market holdings, or about $3 trillion worth of stocks and mutual fund shares combined!

Women’s financial decisions have made them the top earning group for several years now; their net worth has increased by 11% since 2013 — four times faster than it did for men (2%). The average American woman has nearly twice the amount saved in her 401(k) as an average man does ($58,000 vs $30,000).

Women networking is important and Women entrepreneurship is also growing around the world. Having the support to meet you where you are in your journey of success, the resources to pursue your goals and accelerate your growth is what women in networking is all about.
