Your Stories, Your Words: The Latest From the 1,000+ Stories Project

More than 1,000 women entrepreneurs from around the world have told us about their personal business journeys. Here are their stories, in their own words. Tell us yours!

Michelle Hamman: MotherTongues

MotherTongues just released our first iPhone/iPad app, World Words. It teaches you one life-affirming word per day, with pronunciation and meaning. It is being downloaded around the world!

Dawn Firsing-Paris: Dripsters

I started creating this product for my children. With the sticky, drippy mess of ice pops, I wanted something they could use that would save me a clean-up!

Linda Tong: KindNotes, LLC

It started as a handmade gift for my then-boyfriend-now-husband several years ago, a jar of 31 notes in mini envelopes to be opened each day or anytime he needed a smile.

Laurel Gunnarson: The Didi Jewelry Project

I started this business to help women facing hardship in India through selling their jewelry. I taught jewelry making to women who are working in brothels, HIV positive, widows, and/or facing extreme poverty.

Jacqueline Rivera: Pawfect Day, Inc

The disappointment of working long hours for someone and not being appreciated forced me to look beyond my situation. I was constantly drained and depressed.

Jennifer Downing: Nourish

A stay-at-home-mom of four, feeding them well is a full-time job. Planning meals and cooking from scratch on a budget are reflective of my time in the food industry.

Katie Niemeyer: Handana

Handana does more than protect my eyes: It has become a powerful reminder to cross my finish lines, to persevere.
