Supporting Small Business for Women's History Month
Did you know that March is Women’s History Month?
The U.S. Census reports that nearly 10 million people in the United States are employed by women-owned businesses. That’s a staggering number of households depending on those companies to thrive!
With women currently owning about 40% of businesses across the U.S., there’s no doubt the impact women have is felt across the nation.
It’s no secret that supporting small businesses is good for your community and the economy, but it’s important to know who’s in charge of the business you’re supporting. You want to be sure your hard-earned support is going to the people you believe in most.
Female Owned Small Businesses
Supporting small businesses is important every day of the year, and March puts a spotlight on the contributions made by women to the United States. Whether you find yourself shopping for a new piece of furniture or the perfect candle for a spa day, take a moment to be conscious of the company you’re supporting.
You might not realize it, but how you shop matters! Each buying decision you make stands to make a difference in a community that needs your support. (That's why we at Scented Designs like to walk the walk and do our best to also shop female owned businesses in California and across the country!)
Woman Owned Businesses to Support
Events over the last couple of years have left a lot of us feeling uncertain, with some of us experiencing stress and pressure unlike anything before. Many women found themselves at home during the pandemic, whether to care for children amid school closures or because they lost their jobs.
This was a crucial time for some women to develop new ideas and push boundaries. For those women who were able to turn the pandemic into something productive, support from the local and larger digital community means everything.
Even for those who have been in business for years prior, consistent and loyal customer support is worth more than money itself!
