Why One Woman Shop?
We saw that there was an increasing number of female solopreneurs and freelancers who were seeking community and resources. There are plenty of websites out there, but we couldn't find one that offered comprehensive resources while being a safe, comfortable place for women to connect, ask questions, and make (online and offline) relationships. Hence the idea of creating a site for one woman shops to converge was born!
Why the tagline, "Going it alone shouldn't be lonely"?
One of the biggest challenges we hear from solopreneurs and freelancers is that it can be isolating to build your own business - especially if you're working from home day in and day out. While online friendships don't take the place of real live in-person ones, we think they can be extremely valuable!
Can I contribute?
If you have interesting, original, well-written content to share with One Woman Shop readers, then yes - by all means! Just jump over to our Contribute page for more information.
I want to participate! I have a question I want to see asked on the site, I want to be interviewed, I have an idea for a tutorial, etc.
Awesome! Member-driven content is hands-down the best way for our site to grow and thrive. As long as it's geared toward female freelancers and solopreneurs, we'll consider it. Please submit ideas to our editor, Danielle, here.
Do I have to become a paid member in order to participate in the site and community?
Nope! We have plenty of resources and events available for any female solopreneur or freelancer who wants to get involved.
That being said, our members receive tons of additional perks (including an invitation to a private Facebook, access to e-courses on productivity, finance, community building, and more, inclusion in our public directory, free sponsorship packages, and tons more) at an awesome price. We encourage you to check membership packages out, but there’s never any pressure to become one.
Are you on social media?
I have other questions, comments, or concerns.
