Happy Wednesday! As you may or may not know, March is National Women’s History Month! In the 1970’s, National Women’s History Month began as only a week in March. During this week, teachers would educate classrooms on the achievements of women. It was also a means to achieving equity goals within the classrooms. In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women. Every year, there is a theme that is picked by the National Women’s History Project. The theme this year is “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business.” I’ve decided to join in on celebrating women in labor and business by doing a weekly feature of women in business who have inspired me.
This feature will include women who exemplify all of the things that we should aspire to be. They are determined, hardworking, disciplined, diligent, successful and beautiful! I will present these women’s stories of how they started their businesses, what inspires them, and some of their secrets to success.
My goal is to inspire you, the everyday professional woman, whether you are running a business, starting a business, managing someone else’s company, or just handling your own business. I am so excited to be celebrating the power of women.
