It seems women are making big waves in the digital earning sphere as new research from Etsy’s UK Seller Census of 150,000 micro-businesses reveals female entrepreneurs make up 86% of online sellers. Of the women who took part in the survey, 46% were mothers with children at home, showing that many women are balancing motherhood with entrepreneurial interests that they can pursue from the comfort of the sofa.

The numbers are even more impressive when you compare them to national figures which show that only 20% of small business owners are female.
