During the last decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown five times faster than the national average, according to the 2016 State of Women-Owned Businesses Report from American Express Open. In fact, women start over 1,000 new businesses every day in the United States. And since The Founding Moms has expanded our monthly meetups for mom entrepreneurs to more than 60 cities — in 12 countries! — we know that this phenomenon is not limited to the US of A. We’ve gone global.
It’s a great time to be a mom entrepreneur.
To celebrate, we partnered with crowdSpring, the world’s #1 choice for entrepreneurs and small businesses for custom logo & web design. They’re the folks that let you post your project, name your price, and watch hundreds of thousands of designers and writers submit ideas for you to choose from.
Since half of the 200,000 designers and writers who work on crowdSPRING are women building their freelancing businesses, we knew they were the right folks to work with in creating a business ebook for mom entrepreneurs who want to start a new business or grow an existing business while raising a family.
The founder of crowdSPRING, Ross Kimbarovsky, met Jill about six years ago and they’ve been mutual fans ever since. Ross is a champion of all things brand-building and he happens to be one of the best writers in the ‘biz. From what he’s seen come and go from the logo landscape and having built a thriving company of his own, he knows a thing or two about starting, growing, and managing a successful business. And when you read the business ebook you will see: Our partnership makes perfect sense.
