Supporting Women-Run Businesses
International Women’s Day was on March 8, but support for women-led businesses should remain top of mind all year-round. Women entrepreneurs are key players in driving the economy and contributing to the business community at large.
DaySmart Software, makers of Salon Iris, is proud to equip our customers with the tools they need to fuel their work and grow their salon businesses. To celebrate National Women’s History Month, we wanted to highlight five Salon Iris customers and women-led small businesses to inspire the next generation of women entrepreneurs.
