In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th and Women’s History Month this month, let’s talk about what it’s like to be women entrepreneurs!
I started my cake business over a decade ago, when my husband was suddenly diagnosed with a brain tumor. Our world was turned upside down - and I realized that I might be left to support our two young children, on my own. Up to that point, I had only made cakes as a hobby, or for family and friends. I immediately hopped to action and got licensed, built a website, registered for a local wedding show, and got my hustle on. I even went from door to door, delivering cupcakes to local businesses.
It was a lot of work. Long days taking care of husband and kids, but in the end, totally worth it. That business supported our family for the next several years.
I felt empowered . It would never have happened, had I not had the support of my family, friends, and community - And had the process of starting a business not been so easy in my city.
In a recent survey, we asked women to tell us how supported they feel in their community. Here are some of the results:
How is it running your business in your city? If you don’t feel supported by your local government, how do you overcome that? If you do feel supported, what is your community doing right? And as women and entrepreneurs, what can we do to affect change?
Check out this article , for more interesting statistics!

Does anyone else have Spring fever? Because I do. So badly. Loving the longer days and warming temps, and can't wait for all the flowers and sunshine and late nights at the park with my family.
This past week we hosted a Spring breakfast, featuring some of our incredibly talented Thumbtack pros in New York. We showcased some beautiful Spring inspired projects, including: pressed flowers, fresh flower bouquets, fresh face masks, and even some springtime insights from a tarot card reader.
It's pretty great to be able to come to one site and find a tarot card reader, a florist, a makeup artist, and a photographer - where else on earth can you do that with a few clicks?! Our pros are so AMAZING.
What are your favorite springtime activities?
(If you need some inspiration, check out these photos)
Spring is also a great time for you to check out Thumbtack as a customer (if you haven't already). Do you need some Spring cleaning done? Maybe it's time to get those branches removed from your water line. Or perhaps this is the time to get your airducts cleaned! (I just hired a Thumbtack pro to clean all of my tile/grout). Using the platform as a customer offers SO MUCH insight as a pro. Understanding the customer journey is incredibly important, when building your profile and communicating with potential clients. Give it a try!
Also, check out the terrific pros from these photos!
Tarot Card Reader - Carmen Mayes
Florist - Elena Seegers
Makeup Artist - Daniela Lai

I had the chance to meet many of our Philly area pros last week. What an incredible city filled with amazing people!
From lunch with pros, to an awesome evening event, to a panel of Top Pros - talking to our pros face to face, hearing their stories, sharing their successes, and listening to their concerns is by far the most fulfilling part of this job.
Philadelphia was also an insanely cool city and I can't wait to go back (next time I'll be sure to eat a Philly Cheesesteak... I can't believe I didn't do that this time).
What did you think of the event - what types of meet-ups would you like to see in your city in the future?
@LZDNVG, @EHasierPhoto, @Elisha_Carter, @mlanko4893, @shafiqmallory49, @TJW_Carpentry, @PadoveAppraisal, @KleanNKlear, @Alilewisinterio, @Richardm, @Bokboxx, and everyone else that was there - let us know what you thought!
