Ladies, do you like taking risks? Well, if you’ve started your own home-based business the answer to that question would be “yes.”
Do you feel comfortable when you take risks? Even if you have started your own home-based business, the answer to this question might be a loud “NO!”
In taking risks, you will only feel comfortable when your knowledge and experience increases. The best way to increase your knowledge and experience in running a home-based business is to seek out and become comfortable with using business-based resources in the City of Chicago.
You have already learned that the Chicago Public Libraries are good resources to use when starting and/or expanding your home-based business.
Another good resource to tap into would be the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC). Dedicated to providing “services and programs that support and accelerate women’s business ownership and strengthen their impact in the economy,” the Women’s Business Development Center can aid you in your quest of becoming comfortable taking the risk of running your own business.
WBDC offers entrepreneurial training workshops and seminars; personalized business and finance counseling; access to markets through procurement opportunities; access to capital; access to information and resources; and advocacy on behalf of women business owners to create change.
For more information about WBDC and how it can help you to become a successful home-based business owner in Chicago, call 312-853-3477 or visit 8 S. Michigan Ave., 4th Floor, Chicago, IL or www.wbdc.org.
