A List of Women-Owned Businesses

Women Owned Businesses

Here at Divas With A Purpose we wholeheartedly support women-owned businesses and fellow Divapreneurs.

Definition of a DIVA: a woman who is driven, inspiring, victorious and called to action in her personal and professional life

Definition of an entrepreneur: a person who organizes and operates a business or businesses, taking on greater than normal financial risks in order to do so.

Put those two together and you have a phenomenal #DIVApreneur:

A DIVA who organizes and operates her business (full or part-time) while collaborating with and sowing into her personal and professional circles to inspire others to be the best they can be in all areas of their lives.

Below is a list of fellow Divapreneurs and the services that they offer. If you are a fellow divapreneur,
