BOZEMAN -

Over 50 women gathered Wednesday to learn about the resources offered to women who are interested in starting a business.

“Montana is the number one place to start a business.” Said Small Business Advocate for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, Andy Shirtliff.

Women business owners from across the state gathered at Bobcat Stadium to share experiences and successes. Anna Kazmierowski moved to the Treasure State 16 years ago, and started A 2 Z Staffing Solutions in Helena. Next month, she will be opening another. 

" I had a lot of business owners say when are you going to open a business in Bozeman, come one Anna we need you, so I took the challenge." Said Kazmierowski.

Kazmierowski knew it was not going to be easy, but she was able to use some of the resources that Montana has to offer entrepreneurs.

" I tapped into the navigator that the governor’s office created a couple of years ago, that's a fabulous tool and I also attended a lot of SBA sponsored workshops." She said.

But, the Women in Business Alliance  says, too often women are afraid to take the risk and that’s why more and more events like the one Wednesday are popping up all over the state.

'We have this approach we call the team Montana approach where we work with folks at the local level, to the county, to the regional level, to the state, the university level, and so on." Said Shirtliff.

The meetings focus, don’t let anything stop you from achieving your business goals, the same message that Kazmierowski has to any woman contemplating making the leap.

"If it feels right and you have all the resources in place, just absolutely do it."
