Last month we brought you the first installment of our female member series. While women-led businesses continue to grow in numbers, it can still seem like a lonely place, especially in male-dominated industries. We spoke with Jennifer Schaumberg, an employee of Fuse Solutions, to find out her experiences with coworking and small business life.
