North Florida Women Business Owners
Disney recently revolutionized the princess stereotype with Tiana, from The Princess and the Frog. Princess Tiana was not entitled to or given her kingdom, but instead she worked for it. Tiana was a chef and aspiring restaurateur. After marrying her prince, returned home to New Orleans to open her very own restaurant. It’s a great picture of a woman who worked hard for what she wanted.
As Emerald Coast Business Brokers help customers buy and sell businesses in the North Florida area, we have come to know many women business owners with work ethics similar to Tiana’s–working diligently to create successful, longstanding businesses. If you’re a woman considering business ownership in North Florida, welcome!
