What is it like to be a woman entrepreneur in current times? How did you realize your goal and laid the foundation for Rebecca Hay Designs?

I think this is an incredible time for female entrepreneurs.

Social media has democratized an outdated and old-fashioned industry allowing designers to get noticed. There are a lot more women taking center stage these days than ever before.

I am also a firm believer in collaboration over competition and think women especially can benefit from being in community with each other which is why I started my Designer Meet-Ups that has now transitioned online to Facebook. It’s a safe place where designers can share and help each other.

Do you have any advice for small-scale business owners who are finding it difficult to pull through in these challenging times?
