Okay, I did say "Shameless Plug" so don't say you weren't warned.
There's a group of incredibly well-connected, entrepreunerial, successful or on-the-way-to-there, creative, talented, beautiful, amazing, awesome women on LinkedIn called... what else... LinkedInPowerWomen! We're the first and only exclusive woman's group on LinkedIn. Sorry, guys. We love you but you're welcome to create your own...it's easy and it's free. Just like this one ;-)
I continue to be pleasantly surprised everytime a new member joins and introduces herself. The other day a woman I'll lovingly call Lady Iacocca posted an intro about herself. Turns out she owns a Ford/Lincoln Mercury dealership in the tri-state area, and is just one of a handful of women in the biz. When I welcomed her to the group I told her that her hubby and kids had a sweet deal goin' on. And she looks like a million bucks!
Then there's this incredible abstract impressionist near the Santa Cruz mountains who has also provided management consulting services for CEO's, politicians and even royalty!
...And an adventurous soul who left the corporate world and the beautiful city by the bay to follow her bliss in Iceland and plans to trek elsewhere.
We've got an incredibly talented and accomplished roster of recruiters on the board as well, and more keep joining everyday. I've invited them to create their own blogs here and to make their presence known. What scintillating company. I hang with the very best.
Ladies, LinkedInPowerWomen is the safe and supportive space to be for sharing bright ideas, learning new things and blazing new trails.
