canva tips Dec 07, 2021
If you’ve been on Instagram for a while, then you know how huge the change was going from sharing photos to videos. It’s shaken our community and forced us all to shift our marketing strategies.

Female Entrepreneurs and The Great Resignation

As the year comes to an end one thing is certain, the shift from corporate jobs to freelance work is permanent and growing. Over the last year, more than two million Americans decided to leave the traditional 9-5 and transition to freelance work.

However, there is little evidence suggesting that workers will go back to business as usual.
Over the past year, women left the workforce en masse. Overworked and under-appreciated, many chose to leave their careers in search for some balance. Freelance work gives women the opportunity to pursue their passions, build a career, and live a full life. Female entrepreneurs have more control over their daily lives and a greater earning potential. There are no barriers when you own your own business; you get to set the rules and decide how you spend your time. 
Of course owning a business is challenging...
