While Google is a wonderful search engine, sometimes conducting research by simply typing in keywords can take longer than any overworked professional woman has time for. When you need to locate specific information quickly and efficiently, the best way to get the job done is to use a specialized website or search engine.
Whether you’re a new business owner looking for facts, researching a project for your boss, or interested in becoming an entrepreneur, these sites are excellent tools for any woman involved in the business world.
In no particular order, here is a list of 10 excellent resources to help streamline your research process.
