September #wgbiz Outgoing Editor Twitterchat with Shonali Burke
24 October 2011

It was the end of August. It had been announced that Shonali’s schedule was becoming too demanding to continue on as our Editor here at Women Grow Business, and no one knew who was taking over. She was a bit under the weather, so I volunteered to help with the chat at the last minute, petrifying as the thought was. Read more…

    Faith and Enthusiasm: Cornerstones of Entrepreneurship
    14 December 2010

    “It’s faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living. Starting a business from scratch is no small task. You can take classes, workshops, talk to other business owners, and read every book you can get your hands on but nothing will prepare you for opening your own company. Read more…

You know the difference between Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and blogs. You have an idea about how you can and should use each one. Read more…

        Blogging: Out With the Old? Not So Fast!
        29 October 2010

        As technology races ahead, we’re bombarded by tools claiming to be the ultimate for communicating our messages to the masses. Ten years ago, it was the internet and websites that sold dog food, a few years ago “blog” entered the lexicon, and today everyone has a Facebook page. There’s no telling what tomorrow will bring.

          Wrestling with Authenticity 2.0 And Rants About Women
          14 September 2010

          A colleague and I recently discussed women’s self-promotion styles compared to men. Then Clay Shirky’s blog post “A Rant About Women” came up, along with his thought-provoking remarks on the subject. I wish Clay Shirky’s rant from earlier this year contradicted my own observations i.e. that women often threaten their own success by failing to promote themselves effectively or by avoiding that axiom “fake it till you make it.

            Why Giving Back Is Good For Business
            29 June 2010

            I’m not a soup kitchen kind of girl. When people say, “I’m going to volunteer!” isn’t that the first thing you think of?  It is for me. And while I’m deeply moved by the enormous difficulties homeless people face, I just don’t see myself in latex gloves and a shower cap dishing out shepherd’s pie. Read more…

              If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Women Grow Business, it’s that it’s a growing, warm and welcoming village. In that, it “takes a village… ” etc. Read more…

                Making The Connection With Women In Business
                28 May 2010

                Ever since this blog made its debut almost a year and a half ago, the one thing Jill, and then I, focused on, was building, and connecting to, our community. We try to do this by giving you a range of topics to read about, but all focused on and for women entrepreneurs. Because if we give you content that’s relevant to your life as a woman entrepreneur, we’re making a connection with you, no matter how ephemeral it might initially seem. Read more…
