This guide is not meant to cover the “nuts and bolts” of starting a business—there are other tools for that. Instead, we will explore the internal process and offer inspiration. Each section contains a list of additional resources, but don’t limit yourself to these. This guide is meant to educate and support women who are making the transition to self-employment.
