These 5 Women-Owned Businesses Thrive with Remote Teams

Did you know more than 1,200 women launch businesses every day? And, they employ 7.9 million workers and generate over $1.4 trillion in revenue, annually. That’s a LOT of money! But what’s more impressive is the number of military spouses leading the force. They’re thriving with help from hundreds of women and men stationed around the world. Mostly through remote team work. So, in honor of Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating five women-owned businesses. All five are trailblazers in remote team development and success. An untapped network of professionals helping each of these companies achieve success.
