8 Badass Female Entrepreneurs We're Celebrating this Month
March is the month of the WOMAN, so we wanted to celebrate by highlighting some of our favorite female entrepreneurs. These women range in industry, but they all have one thing in common. They’re not afraid to innovate, shake things up and create incredible businesses – even when others doubt them.
Take a look at these 8 women. We hope they inspire you to never settle. Because even though this month is for celebrating women, here at Multitaky, we celebrate women every single day.
