Women 2.0 Entrepreneurs

Have You Ever Thought of Starting Your Own Company?

Have you ever wanted to be the next Oprah Winfrey and start a business empire of your own? I attended an event thrown by Women 2.0, a nonprofit geared towards women entrepreneurs last Thursday, and it was a pretty inspiring session of women go-getters talking about their experiences of founding their companies and others pitching their new startup ideas. There was Carol Realini, the founder of Obopay who had raised $200 million in funding for her companies, and Lynn Jurich who's an advocate for cleantech and who started SunRun, a home solar company.

These women are paving the way for the rest of us and adding value to our economy with job creation. What about you — are you itching to branch out on your own and start your own company?

My husband has talked about doing it. I wouldn't want to start one on my own, but I wouldn't mind working with my husband if he started his own.

While I love the idea of being my own boss, I think running a business, especially in the beginning, is a lot more work than working for someone else. If I didn't have a young child to go home to, I may not mind the extra work so much but with my current lifestyle I like being able to clock in and out on a consistent schedule so that my work life doesn't interfere with my family life.
