More and more, millennial women are finding their own solution to the gender pay gap and that is to run their own business. If traditional jobs won't pay us what we're worth, we'll do it ourselves. In an age where “54% of the nation’s Millennials either want to start a business or already have started one,” according to Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, women are transitioning to Boss Lady status in large amounts.
We admire women like Melody Ehsani and Sophia Amoruso who are running thangs on their own terms and gettin' da most (not da lesser) as Pimp C so eloquently said. No, we're not "top notch hoes" but instead "top notch ArithmaChics" that are breaking through the gender pay gap in style. If you're taking those steps and making those sacrifices so that you can one day work for yourself, we tip our hats to you and hope that you don't give up. Let's make 2014 that year that you GDM!
