Your home-based business is part of a massive piece of the US economy, more than you might realize. Whether you work from home as a freelancer, a seller on Amazon, a caterer, an online retailer or any one of a number of other careers, you’re one of 38 million home-based businesses in the US alone.

You might not have thought of securing your home-based business the way you would a business in a formal office or another building, but you should.

That’s especially true when you consider the amount of work you have to put in. However, you’ll find it easier to gain traction if you pay attention to some SEO fundamentals.

For decades, female employees pressed for access to the same opportunities and treatment as their male counterparts. This became especially true as women penetrated some fields that men had dominated for years. But women entrepreneurs do not have to push for their rights in the workplace. Instead, they decide whom to hire and whom to work with in their firms. In New York City in particular, women are succeeding in business because of empowerment programs in place there.
