With Thanksgiving arriving tomorrow (for those of us in the USA), I want to take a moment to reflect on what I’m grateful for in 2007. I’m thankful for my husband, children, family & friends, and the success of my first book: Your Career, Your Way. I’m also thankful for being able to post my blog entries amid a busy work and speaking circuit.
To celebrate the success of Career Woman, Inc., I’d like to dedicate the remainder of this year’s blogs to some women leaders from whom I believe we can all learn. Today marks the first of a six-part series focusing on some potential role models for career women everywhere. Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
