17 August 2012

It’s Friday, so I’m back again with a collection of intriguing resources I’ve recently run into.

Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer at Marketing Profs, co-founder of Clickz, Author, Women Grow Business community member, and generally awesome person, is now a meme-dominator. Read more…

Recollections and Community Comments about the Women's Leadership Soiree #wgbiz #smwwdc
17 February 2012

I used to think it was so silly when someone would describe an evening as magical. Yet now that words escape me, I understand. They must mean that an event they nurtured to maturity   met the needs of the people it was created for in ways that exceeded what they would have imagined. Read more…
