CHICAGO — October is Women’s Small Business Month.

There is a unique resource in the Chicago area that can help women create and grow their business — Depaul’s Women in Entrepreneurship Institute. Abigail Ingram is the director of the institute and she joined WGN Weekend Morning News.

She shared these four tips for starting your own business:

  1. Be passionate about your product.
  2. Do real research.
  3. Be tough about finances.
  4. Create a business plan that's bankable instead of only fundable.
