Our Top 3 Resources for Women in Business
We root for everyone in business and encourage everyone we know to turn their passions into profits! This is especially true of women since we happen to be a women-based and women-run consulting company. In today’s blog, we want to share the wealth of knowledge we have gained over the years. Here are our top 3 resources for women in business and how we recommend you capitalize on each.
Small Business Association offers a Learning Center and Dashboard for Goal Completion.
As a small business owner, you’ll undoubtedly want to check out the entity that provides a ton of resources. The Small Business Administration (SBA) offers an interactive Learning Center that even features a dashboard where you can track your task completion as you launch and grow your business!
When navigating through the SBA.gov site, you’ll see many menu options to look at. No need for overwhelm., Instead, this is a time for inspiration. We suggest first starting at the digital learning platform, which has everything you need to educate yourself on entrepreneurial best practices and available financing options.
There are dozens and dozens of quick video tutorials with actionable items. From categories that break down as follows:
Even if you are already in business (and many of you at our blog are), these free and fast dashboard videos can be used to grow your existing business also. Even revisiting areas from the beginning that you could potentially revamp for more revenue is a wise idea! Times have changed and so have buyer behaviors. Consider starting from the basics to ensure everything in your foundation is both flexible and solid.
Accounting Services and Software are Imperative for Women in Business.
Perhaps we are biased, but women, oftentimes, are better equipped and efficient at clerical work. Maybe it is our ability to multitask or to see the big picture and implement change with a balance of nurturing. Who knows? All we can attest to is that for Two Sense Consulting, our hearts and handiwork are accounting and consulting combined.
Bookkeeping is a fundamental part of any business and it’s the center spoke of ours. We are financial accountants by trade who love to get lost in a spreadsheet. Building and maintaining financial reports including profit and loss, balance sheets, cash flow, and budgets are at the core of our accounting services. The truth is you can find this service with other companies (and of course men as well), but we distinguish ourselves primarily through trust, followed by connection and craft.
We utilize trustworthy and intuitive software like QuickBooks, coupled with our own thorough observations and candid conversations. All at pricing that is affordable. With clean books comes extra time to focus on the aspects of your business you love. Make educated financial decisions for growth and sustainability, as well as, more revenue.
NAWBO Membership Makes All the Difference for Women in Business.
Being part of any organization or membership is worthwhile if their mission meets values specific and special to you. NAWBO was founded in 1975 by a group of women entrepreneurs in the Washington D.C. At the time, there were no business organizations with membership open to women entrepreneurs. So they created their own. Their vision and legacy led to today’s NAWBO.
Since their founding in 1975, NAWBO has helped women grow and scale their businesses by sharing resources and providing a single, unified voice to shape economic and public policy.
With nearly 60 chapters and 5,000 members, NAWBO is the only dues-based organization in the United States that represents women entrepreneurs across all industries. You can even locate one near you by using their Find a NAWBO Chapter option on their website.
From virtual lunch-and-learn seminars to in-person conferences, you are sure to connect with like-minded women in business and benefit from sharing your resources and recommendations.
Who knows, you may even see us at an event in the near future, whether on location or remotely, since Two Sense Consulting is also a NAWBO member in good standing!
