  3. Patti Smith says:

    I love MaryJanes ! Such an informative fun magazine that promotes small business!I save every copy& research projects! Lularoe is an amazing source for stylish affordable American made clothes.Id love a pair of those leggings!

  4. Patricia Geaghan says:

    “Waihini Builders” on Oahu in Hawaii is my most admired female run business. When I first met the owner, Clarice, if she ever hired men and her answer: “Sure, if they’re qualified…”. What I like best about her business approach as a female building contractor is a woman KNOWS what the best functional and practical design is for a kitchen or bath … as in location and number of power outlets – females also grasp the stress a woman is under when her house is disrupted by renovation or construction… so Waihini Builders gets top vote!

  5. Jody Anderson says:

    I have a few that are my favorite!
    The first being my own business of course. I am a network marketing associate for Tranont.
    Next is Mary Jane, Kris Carr, then the lady that developed Teccino, herbal coffee, and the last lady is Mary Kay.
    What AWESOME people!!!

  6. Diana says:

  8. My favorite women-owned business is Mary Jane’s Farm, love the magazine and the inspiration it generates.

  9. Bettina Graber says:

    The Gift Station in Munising, Michigan. It is housed in a small brick building with classic architecture that once was a gas station. It is run by two very savvy women who have kept it going through thick and thin for a whole lot of years. Their inventory is very appropriate for the large amount of tourist traffic experienced in this community, but also is appropriate for local needs.

  10. Amanda Y. says:

    My favorite woman owned business is my former employer who owns an interior design firm in Indianapolis. She started out at the company working just out of college, and then became the Vice President of the branch after the owner moved to Texas. She worked her way up to being able to buy the branch to become her own boss. I think she is amazing!

  11. Cynthia says:

    Sweet Treats, Pittsburg, CA.

  12. Lee says:

    My favorite woman run business??? I am afraid to answer as there are many in our area but I love to eat so it is a toss up between a fabulous little diner in Malone, NY called “Nancy’s” with home cooking and the Noon Mark Diner in Keene, NY where one can get sinfully delicious gluten free food. Even if you don’t have room for dessert don’t leave without the gluten free cinnamon rolls! Both restaurants serve their food with a smile and an extra dose of “you are special here”. (I think, no, I know, we have friends who visit from out of town just to eat at one of these establishments.)

  13. Jennifer Papenberg says:

    I really like Herron Hill Farm in Washington. Herron Hill is run by a lovely, generous woman who makes goat cheese and teaches classes.

  14. Carey Crist says:

    Our assisted living for the elderly is run by my mom, sister and I as well as other women. We do have a male chef/maintenance man, but I think women are the best caregivers.

  15. Elizabeth Plewa says:

    Laminin – Missy Robertson
    Jewelry is made by women who need help in life, rescued from either homelessness, addiction, etc.

  17. Lisa Trust says:

    I love Sunny Days in Ithaca, NY!

  18. Melva V. says:

    My favorite Woman Run Business is MARY KAY COSMETICS. The history of how it started by MARY KAY ASH is so touching. She had a vision on helping women earn money when at the time, women could not make it on their own. Women’s wages were so low, if they were hired at all! There are many millionaire women in the MARY KAY BUSINESS. ALSO, the Mary Kay Cosmetics Company wants the employees to put GOD first, Family second, and Business third. This company has been blessed because of putting GOD first. The products are great also.

  28. I love all the comments above…it is so inspiring. I am a small business owner…woman owned. My little shop in Wiscasset Maine is called TREATS and we are a bakery specialty market. My goal was to have a community space where everyone enjoyed homemade food and could sit around a long communal table and make new friends, share stories, and enjoy each others company! My other goal was to support local farmers and producers in our state as well as artists and craftswomen & men. But the top reason was to support my family and I make it a commitment to treat my staff as if they were important!

I love what I do I love interacting with my clients. And I make excellent money for a part-time job! And it is all my own I can do it how I wish.
