The windy city has a plethora of resources for small business women ranging from city provided options such as the 4th floor of the public library to loan programs, workshops, and more.
The number of online resources for small businesses are in the millions, but qualifying them to make sure they are the right tools for your business can feel like a tremendous amount of work. So I decided to create a new series for women entrepreneurs, small business and startups, targeting various cities across the country. By polling the women who follow ICB Consults on Instagram, we came up with several cities that our core audience lives in. We will break down resources in Atlanta, Detroit, DC, Dallas, Memphis and a couple more cities.
Note some of the resources will be the same in some cities. When I first launched my business I however overlooked the importance of some of these resources especially becoming members of women focused groups. Today we will start with Atlanta.
Now more so than ever, people have been putting a tremendous amount of emphasis on how the best way to grow your business is by advertising online to a global market. Scaling your business is amazing for when your company gets there, however growing your business locally is even better. There is a high magnitude of local resources for the small business owners if they learn to focus on their local demographic first.
