DRIVEN BY OUR PURPOSE
January 5, 2017
As individuals, we all want to feel like we are here on Earth fulfilling a unique purpose. Or as Oprah Winfrey has said so well, “There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born.
What's Your Next Level?
December 4, 2016
Think about when you first started your business…when it was just you at your kitchen or coffee table with your big idea. Just how far did you imagine you’d go? Perhaps to the million-dollar mark or beyond?
Why Women Give More

As women, we are all painfully aware of the gender gap in workplace pay that continues to exist in America and around the world, but did you know that there’s also one in giving? But that’s a positive.
Small Yet Powerful

When you think of something that is “small yet powerful,” a few things might come to mind: A computer chip, an engine, medicine, a diamond, a bullet, etc.
OUR VOICE IS OUR POWER
September 13, 2016
When NAWBO was founded 41 years ago, there were no other business advocacy groups for women entrepreneurs, so the founders of NAWBO created their own. Decades later, we are proud to advocate on behalf of all women business owners
Equality: What Does It Mean?

Equality means different things for different people—and generations.
Technology: It’s Everywhere…or Is It?
July 14, 2016
Technology is everywhere—entwined in nearly every area of our lives. As women business owners, in particular, it makes us faster, smarter and more efficient. It connects us with employees, customers and vendor partners and even with family and friends while at work or on the road. It allows us to share ideas and resources, advocate and lead with our NAWBO sisters across the country when we’re not able to come together in person. And it enables us to be on the leading edge of today’s business tools, processes and solutions.
Education Keeps Us Current and Competitive
June 6, 2016
As entrepreneurs, education opportunities present themselves in so many ways. We learn from other women business owners as part of NAWBO or by serving on the national or a local chapter board. We benefit from attending conferences, like the National Women’s Business Conference, and training events in our industries and fields. And many of us take advantage of more traditional education opportunities, like earning specialized college degrees or becoming certified women’s business enterprises.
It Takes Money to Make Money
April 1, 2016
You’ve heard it before: It takes money to make money. As women entrepreneurs, we know this all too well as we work to access the capital we need—whether it’s through personal savings, traditional bank loans, venture capital money or even crowdfunding—to start new ventures or grow existing businesses to the next level.
Leadership in the Spotlight
March 10, 2016
As women business owners, when we think about the topic of leadership—the theme of this month’s issue of NAWBO ONE—a lot of things come to mind. We are leaders in our businesses, households and communities. We have friends, customers and vendor partners in prominent leadership positions in corporate America. And, of course, with election season in full swing, we think about our political leaders—both male and female—and the issues we care about most that we hope they’ll embrace and support.
