Sure, we live in 2008 and everything seems pretty gender equal, right? Not quite. According to statistics, 80% of women in the workforce earn less than $25,000 a year even though a whopping 55% of women provide half of their household's income. So when a woman decides to start her own business, she's already facing an uphill battle. So that's why organizations like Count Me In are crucial to helping women business owners succeed in the professional world. Count Me In promotes the growth of women owned businesses and is the leading national not for profit provider of online business loans, resources, and community for women entrepreneurs.
And SheFinds is incredibly excited to announce that this fall, we will run a promotion to raise money for Count Me In and help small designers get the word out about their designs.
During September, we will feature original accessories created by independent designers that incorporate either the motto “Believe In You”, the Count Me In or Make Mine a Million $ Business® logos, and/or the colors into the design. The designer will pledge to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each piece to Count Me In. You can click here for the complete rules and application deadlines.
Together, Count Me In and SheFinds hope to not only help women succeed, but bring you fabulous designs in the process!
