1st  Can you share why you started Canadian Small Business Women?

The Home Page of the website provides an Event Calendar that shows various Small Business and Entrepreneurial events that are happening across Canada.  Users have the ability to submit events via the Contact Us page for consideration.  There is also the opportunity to advertise at an affordable price via banner ads or thumbnail ads on this page.

The Directory Listings page allows users to submit their business information to be listed on the site.  The unique capability of this feature is that it is FREE to list your business along with an image, a short description, and email address and a phone number.

The Resources page is split into two portions – Startup and Marketing.  This division allows users to pin point the necessary information they require in a short amount of time.  There are also advertising opportunities available on this page.

The blog portion of the business offers a special feature called Canadian Small Business Woman of the Month.  This allows business women to submit a short autobiography or a bio of a fellow business woman to be featured in an article.  It also gives the reader the chance to receive advice from experts in various fields related to small business such as Small Business Banking, Social Media, Financing, Taxes, Business Management, Business Development and Web Development.
2nd  Can you share insights as to why its important to networking, share you business and learn from other successful women?

Networking is important because it gives you a chance to learn from others.  It is important for women to network with other women (not exclusively) in order to learn how to juggle the many responsibilities we hold and still be successful in business.  As women, we need to learn to develop our own definition of success and know that it is possible to be a successful business women as well as a successful parent and partner.
