  • How Big Is Your World? February 15, 2017

    Online auction site eBay is one of the world’s best-known firms, boasting 167 million active buyers and more than $2 billion in annual revenue. Yet when it first tried to launch in China, it failed within just two years. The difficulty of competing with local rivals forced eBay to shut down its main website in the country. Later, it formed a successful joint venture with a local partner to help operate an online auction business in the country. The lesson learned was this: Just because you have a strong U.S. brand doesn’t automatically translate to success in another country.

  • 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. And how you become most truly alive.”

    As part of NAWBO, I truly feel like every one of us—from our National and chapter board leaders and staff to every member of every chapter and every partner—is helping to fulfill a unique purpose: To help women business owners succeed and grow.

  • Small Yet Powerful October 10, 2016

    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. For me, I also think about small business—the 28.8 million small businesses in the United States today to be exact, which according to the U.S. Small Business Administration, account for 99.7 percent of all businesses in the U.S. and provide jobs for 56.8 million employees.

  • 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 and support others who do the same.

  • Equality: What Does It Mean? August 9, 2016

    Equality means different things for different people—and generations. For the women who founded NAWBO more than 40 years ago, it was about being able to take out a line of credit to start or grow their business without their husband, brother or father cosigning. For women business owners today, it’s about equality in pay, in the boardroom, in elected offices, in government procurement opportunities and more. And for women in other parts of the world, especially in developing nations, equality often takes on a completely different meaning—like the ability to work or receive an education.
