Being an enterprising migrant woman is not just a key option to pay our bills, it is also a crucial activity that empowers ourselves and our families. Why? Because in the process of learning how to create value that others want to pay for, developing a network, learning how to pitch and how to sell, we are pushed to articulate ourselves to make saleable arguments, to defend our rights, and raise our voice.
As a migrant woman and entrepreneur, I have learned that the best way to start an enterprise in another country is by developing a growing network where women in business can support each other to innovate, strengthen and grow their businesses.
Please join our National Business Network. We are powerful together.
