From the Google Small Business Community
We’re excited to take part in National Women’s History Month this March. The 2015 theme – “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives” – celebrates the impact that women-owned small businesses have on our culture and economy. Women have been a force in American business for generations, from Henrietta Johnston – the first professional American female artist in 1707 – to the eight million female business owners in the United States today.
Women continue to make a positive impact across many industries. Check out a few of our member spotlights on female small business owners including:
- Pastabilities: An Italian restaurant in Syracuse, NY;
- Red Chair Salon: A salon started by a hairstylist who grew from apprentice to owner in five years;
- Jackalope Brewing: A brewery founded by two friends combining their passions; and
- LSTN: A headphone company that pays it forward with every product it sells.
