While I can not speak for all the ladies in the industry, I feel comfortable saying we feel grateful for the jobs we have, it is not as glamourous as you may think, and we work hard to earn the respect we deserve.
I recently had the opportunity to lead a panel with the Women of the Washington Redskins for a WISE and WOW! event at FedExField. About 200 women showed up to learn how these amazing women achieved success in a male dominated business.
I could have talked with them for hours ... Read More
