American Express has put together a series of articles called women in business that showcases the accomplishments of women entrepreneurs.  The goal of the series is to create a conversation with women business owners through social media channels.

Jenn Hyman

Check out the infographic below of American Express celebrating the future of women business owners.  What I found interesting is that there are 8.3 million women-owned businesses in the United States and women-owned firms generate revenues of $1.3 trillion.
