If you’re a woman who's always wanted to start your own business but didn’t know where to begin, you're in the right place—and you're probably not alone. Since the pandemic, many women have had to make difficult choices between work and caretaking responsibilities, with a reported 865,000 leaving the labor force between August and September of 2020. Running your own business from home could give you the flexibility you're looking for. How can you get started?

Taking the steps below can help you begin the process. Keep in mind that starting a business doesn't always follow a straight line—you may need to take a step backward before moving ahead. Don’t worry—it’s a normal part of #startuplife.
