How Women Can Make Money Doing What They Love

The landscape of business is changing. A study conducted by Intuit predicts that by the year 2020, 40% of the U.S. workforce will be independent contractors. More and more people are realizing they can be their own boss! The idea of working from home, starting your own business, and creating a life you love is more accessible than ever before. With the growing popularity of websites like Etsy and Pinterest, it’s never been easier to start a business.

Our very own Christy Wright, a Certified Business Coach and versatile speaker, has been working with and researching women from all walks of life and levels of business who are redefining what it looks like to run a business. And what she found in her years of coaching was that so many of their stories began the same way.

The Pattern That Inspired the Book

Christy found that many women get started the same way. A woman might have a hobby, skill, or passion—something she’s always loved that she spent time doing just for fun. Then, as she shares images of something she made on Facebook, or her friends hear about her particular talent, and people start asking if they can buy the product or hire her for a service. After more and more requests and affirmations, eventually there’s an “Aha!” moment where she realizes, Hey, I could actually make money doing this!

But what happens next is why Christy became so passionate about helping these women. They find themselves with a potential business on their hands, but feel as though they’re making it up as they go along. They get bogged down by the business side of the business, like taxes, licensing, and marketing. They feel overwhelmed and unequipped to run a business and they feel like giving up.

The Solution for Your Business

Christy believes that these women already have everything in them that they need to succeed—they just need a plan. She has inspired and worked with some of the top business leaders in the country for nearly a decade, and her own experience as an entrepreneur and leader allows her to connect with women and give them practical advice and empowerment to win in the marketplace.

Her new book, Business Boutique: A Woman’s Guide for Making Money Doing What She Loves, is a step-by-step plan to start or grow a business. This book is the missing link between taking the ideas in your head and the dream in your heart and making them a reality!
