Women who make a difference!

Women who make a difference!

Happy Monday and Happy Women’s Month,

I was asked by my team to write about my role as a “fearless” woman business leader for Women’s History Month.

So many great women and men have come before me and on whose shoulders I stand. Too often as women leaders, it’s easier to find cheerleaders to cheer us on when we really need mentors taking action on our behalf. Entrepreneurship is about experiencing the pain, the work and the love of the journey more so, than arriving at a destination and our mentors help us do that.

This month I give gratitude and appreciation to those who have inspired me to live to my highest and fullest potential. First, I start with my parents, who through encouragement created an environment that made me hungry to learn and hungry for knowledge. I must also acknowledge my grandmother who was an entrepreneur before the name became popular, making a living for herself at 16 by starting with a “shop” selling food and other items within the community she lived. Within a few years she grew that little shop to five, and used this income to send her children to University. This from a woman born in Jamaica in 1910.

In honor of my grandmother– I would like to show you women that I admire and who have made a significant difference in our WORLD! Have fun…
