What Working for a Woman-Owned Business Means to Me

By on January 12th, 2021

Women earn over 57% of all undergraduate degrees, yet they make up just 27.6% of all CEO positions in the US. Although 2020 was the year with the most female CEOs nominated for the Fortune 500 list, only 37 women were nominated, which makes up around 7.4% of the ranked businesses.

A Changed World, A Changed Us

By on June 22nd, 2020

As lockdowns lift and communities reopen, we are starting to feel a hint of normalcy return. Living in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic has undeniably challenged us and, through these challenges, we have been changed.

Some have been changed as they grieve the loss of loved ones. Others have been changed as they search for a new job and means to live. Some have been forced to work throughout the pandemic, risking their lives, and others have had to work full time while taking care of and/or homeschooling children. In one way or another, most of us have had the opportunity to clear our calendars, experiment with new lifestyles, reflect on our priorities, and reset our lives.

By on May 7th, 2020

Most of us are spending more time at home these days. This new reality comes with more free time. Although many of us are gravitating toward watching TV, online shopping, and aimlessly re-cleaning our kitchens over and over again, this extra time provides a great opportunity to evaluate where our own personal growth opportunities lie and reinvest  in ourselves both personally and professionally.
