Recently I’ve been on the hunt for strong female role models in business. I’m doing it for many different personal and business reasons, a major one being: if she can do it, so can I. I’ve come to realize that while men are constantly sharing strong thoughts and opinions in the business world, it is rarer to find women speaking out about business practices.
