Taking the Leap to Entrepreneurship Guide


When you look at a successful woman business owner, it may seem as though they have some special gene that sets them apart. Were they born to be entrepreneurs, or did they have to work at it? Were they ever afraid?
And how did they know they were ready and able to take that leap and go it alone?

This guide is meant to lend support to women who are making a choice to transition to self-employment. We’ll give you a sense of what being an entrepreneur is all about through the stories of successful BC women business owners, and provide some questions you can ask yourself along the way.

We hope that this guide will help you feel supported and know that you are not alone as you explore the leap to entrepreneurship.
