Females Don't Subtract: We Multiply
Being a female business owner not only contributes and adds value to the economy but it is also about leaving a legacy. Similar to being on a job for 20 plus years with the hope that one day upon retirement you will be able to receive your pension. Likewise, the hope is that the pension will last and provide a substantial foundation for the cost of living. We have become settled on the fact of depending on someone else or some other entity to make sure we have what we need. Nevertheless, why not just rely on God and do it God’s way. One thing we should always know is that His way is better in every aspect of our lives. If we are planting and sowing, we will surely reap. In parallel to that same concept, is the Christian women owning her own business and providing a God given service to those who are in need. Since 2014, pensions have been lost due to the drop and decrease in the stock market. So why do we place our hope in a mark that is never stable. Would it not be better to take the gifts, talents, and abilities that God has gifted us and use them to make this world better? When we are doing what He has gifted us to do, we do not have to worry about a pension. A female business owner’s main objective is to depend on God. Economic climates will change, worldly systems will fail, financial institutions and markets will fail, but God’s market will not. 30 years ago, there were close to 4 million women-owned businesses in the United States. That has increased to over 11 million and approximately 39% of all U.S. businesses have women majority ownership.
