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:
- Be passionate about your product.
- Do real research.
- Be tough about finances.
- Create a business plan that's bankable instead of only fundable.
