As National Women’s Small Business Month comes to a close, and we wrap up our theme of authenticity on the blog, we are featuring our favorite small women-owned businesses and freelancers who show up consistently and authentically right here in our local Rhode Island community over on our stories today! These businesses are led by the most passionate, most creative and most driven boss babes we know. 

Each one of them has inspired our work in some shape or form, so we hope you enjoy getting to know about them! The links below will take you to their individual Instagram accounts:

Since we love a good fun fact around here, here are some statistics to shed some light on the strides that women in business are making and the impact they are creating, and why we as a collective, are A FORCE and must continue to cheer each other on!

  • Women own 42% of businesses in the United States.

  • Women-owned businesses generate $1.9 trillion annually.

  • Women of color account for 50% of female business owners.

Show your favorite women-owned business some love by encouraging them today, and if some of the women we’ve listed above are new to you, spend a few minutes checking out their work and adding them to your list of female small business owners to support with your patronage this holiday season and beyond!
