Promoting women small business ownership

Women business owners are the fastest growing segment of the small business sector, currently representing around half of all business ownership.  And women have come a long way in their quest to overcome obstacles and challenges that are unique to them, such as access to credit, just to name one issue.
Since I first began broadcasting my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show, I’ve made it a point to include plenty of programming on women business ownership issues, which has created a number of important relationships with the best experts on women in business in the world.  Over the years, this group of experts and I have produced a significant body of work on this topic, of which we are very proud.
Recently two of the ladies in my Brain Trust have joined my on my show to talk about how women can start, run and grow their businesses.  First, Mary Cantando and I talked about women helping other women as she introduced her 2010 Woman’s Advantage Calendar. Mary is the author of The Woman’s Advantage and a recognized authority on women’s business initiatives. By the way, Mary mentions a special code that will get you a discount if you want to purchase her calendar.
Also joining me is one of the newest members of my Brain Trust, certified financial counselor,  Hollis Colquhoun (pronounced Calhoun), who is the co-author of Women Empowering Themselves: A Financial Survival Guide. We talked about how women can take control over their personal financial health while they do the same for their families. Take a few minutes to listen to my conversations with these very smart ladies. And be sure to let us know about your own experiences.
