Celebrating Independent Women Entrepreneurs Throughout History

Celebrating independent women entrepreneurs
The history books are thick with pages about the founding fathers who blazed new trails to the free world, leading to our independence on July 4, 1776. I remember learning about the early innovators and entrepreneurs including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John D Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, but where are the stories about women entrepreneurs? Young girls need to learn that an entrepreneur named Coco Chanel was creating a fashion empire in France in the late 1800’s, and that Amelia Earhart was not only an aviator, but an author and entrepreneur. Did you know Earhart created her own line of casual clothing that was sold in department stores in the late 1920’s. This timeline shows some of the women in history who inspired me, paving the way to my independence as a woman entrepreneur.

Get your creative juices flowing, with these 5 inspired summer reads. Together, we’ll rewrite the history books.
