About the Women's Small Business Association (WSBA)

The Women's Small Business Association was founded in 2007 by Susan Miller, the owner of several successful businesses. Ms. Miller has always been an advocate for women, with a strong desire to help women in small business. Her primary goal with the WSBA is to connect women locally and nationally, for the purpose of enabling women to help other women in business.

WSBA mission: To be a valuable online business resource and community for business women, by helping and stimulating small and start up businesses. The goal of the WSBA is to foster women's economic independence by helping them develop skills needed for entrepreneurial success through networking, support, and education.
