Design Your Own Business: Episode 3

Design Your Own Business is a month­ly Internet broad­cast show for free­lancers, the self-employed, and small busi­ness own­ers with a focus on, but not exclu­sive­ly for, design­ers and the cre­ative pro­fes­sions.

Topics Discussed this Episode

March is Women’s History Month, and the March episode of DYOB is all about wom­en’s issues in free­lanc­ing, self-employment, and small busi­ness own­er­ship. “Women in Small Business and Design” will explore the fol­low­ing top­ics:

  • Is there still a glass ceil­ing? If so, how can women break through it?
  • Are female free­lancers and small busi­ness own­ers treat­ed dif­fer­ent­ly than males? If so, how can that be used to advan­tage?
  • What do women about to go self-employed or start a new busi­ness need to con­sid­er?
