Article of Interest: Nearly 40 percent of all business owners are women

In San Antonio Express News

If you need a boost, you'll find it in this powerful article, "Nearly 40 percent of all business owners are women."
Here are five great clips from it.

• "There came a time where I knew that I needed to call my own shots and be my own boss."

• "But it's accurate to say that more women than ever before are stepping up, taking that risk of going out on their own."

• "Just say what you need, and we can find a woman who does it," said Margot Dorfman, who heads the U.S. Women's Chamber of Commerce. "Business is no longer just a man's profession."

• The reasons so many women are choosing to be their own bosses are as diverse as the women and the businesses they run. Many are fulfilling lifelong dreams. Others simply want out of the corporate rat race. Some know they can do it better than incompetent bosses they've suffered.

• "I love every part of this business, and I mean that. I love to see a plan work." -- "It's beautiful, like a birth."
