teach others new skills

Women don’t always have a product to sell. It’s often skills or services that are the foundation of a new business. However, with limited access to education in remote areas, many women are self-taught in their craft. If you have a skill or have mastered knowledge in a certain area, consider volunteering or teaching a free or low-cost course. Something as simple as showing others how to set up a business budget could be just the thing takes a business to the next level.

share on social media
