#WomenInConstruction What do you do after having children?
The statistics in the image is not a good picture and there are many things to say on this issue.
However, I want to address the result from a survey #AECPeople conducted, with one of the questions asking what the top 3 issues are that prevent you from taking action and setting up your own business? Here are the issues:
- Getting clients
- Capital to setup a practice
- Knowledge about Business setup (Admin, IT, Tax etc.)
And I want to point out that 9 out of 10 women who had children are facing issues in returning to work. But, only 16% of those women over-come these 3 issues and set up a business one their own.
What if point 1 could be assisted with and point 2 and 3 could be practically removed from your doubts and from your business “to do” list. And, you received technical and business training and support at no extra cost.
Would that help in increasing the 16% to 25 or 50 or 75%??
It’s #NotATrap and #NotAFunnel
