I’ll date myself here, but I grew up in a generation with superstars Mia Hamm and LeAnn Rimes. As a mother, I think it’s of utmost importance to raise my daughter with high values, but she has to have strong role models she can look up to and admire. We live in a cruel world, but there are LOTS of good people out there. I want our daughter to see women building each other up, supporting one another, loving each other. I want her to know that she can do anything she puts her mind to and no one can stop her.
As part of our community outreach this year, I wanted to reach beyond our normal boundaries and give support to others- not just local schools, local fundraisers, local charities. I convinced Monte to let me pick a handful of companies perhaps in the Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon area and make them a custom business logo sign on us. The catch is that I wanted to seek out small businesses- hopefully ones with female owners. I wanted to find businesses that had owners I’d want my daughter looking up to- people who promote equality and positivity, people who promote friendship, connecting with others. I am on a mission to find some awesome female leaders... do you have any suggestions? Who is your favorite female business owner and why?
