What is your story leading up to startup?

November 5, 2012

Whenever YFE creates a new way of bringing this community together, I always have a small moment of panic as it goes live that no one will respond. Of course there has been times when that actually turns out to be the case. The start to our Blog it! Week was not one of them.

Each day this week, YoungFemaleEntrepreneurs.com is encouraging you to add a link to a new or old blog post, interview or article you’ve been featured in, or video blog to a new prompt that revolves around building a business. Today was the first of five days, where women visited the YFE Facebook Page to comment with a link to their “startup story.”

Today’s Prompt was:
[quote style="1"]Whether you’re just getting started or you’re well into growing your business, everyone has a startup story. Share a link to a blog post that is a “Startup Story.” That could mean different things to each YFE.[/quote]

Here are the links that were added today that answer the prompt in some way (this will be updated up until midnight PST as new links come in). Please visit, comment and share with your networks:
