A Tribute to the Women in my Life

Hello friends, 

On International Women’s Day we celebrate women who have made notable contributions to the betterment of society, locally and globally.  

On a personal note, I want to pay tribute to the women in my life who helped shape who I am as an individual and who I am as a professional person. Take my mother, a strong-willed, proud woman, she always instilled in us (my sisters and I), good work ethics: be present, work hard, and do the best job you can, whatever your trade. My daughter – an ambitious and successful young woman – has in recent years served as a professional coach (what a proud moment!). And of course my youngest sister, a senior manager, herself, has been a mentor in many ways. 

I'm not only fortunate, but blessed to have had strong female role models in my life.

Who do you honor today?
