WomenOnBusiness.com debuted in November 2007 as a labor of love for me. At a time when I found myself spending more and more time writing about business and marketing online, I continually noticed how it was always me and a bunch of men writing about business topics. I wanted to create a place online where women could have a voice about business and establish themselves as the thought leaders they are. My hope was that more women would get the exposure they need to take their careers to the next level while providing the content and conversations that other women in the business world (or aspiring to join the business world) need to learn and grow.
Nearly four years have passed, and I’ve watched a number of volunteer contributors here at WomenOnBusiness.com go on to achieve great things. They’ve launched companies, published books, and built relationships with people around the world. At the same time, my own business and career have grown to successes I hadn’t imagined possible on that November day when WomenOnBusiness.com debuted.
Today, I’m so busy that the content and community here on WomenOnBusiness.com has begun to suffer. Therefore, I made the decision to bring in an Assistant Editor to help me keep up with the site and ensure it remains the great place it has become over the years. It’s the contributors, readers and community that have helped WomenOnBusiness.com grow into one of the leading blogs for business women. Thank you all for sticking with WomenOnBusiness.com as we’ve gone through recent growing pains.
