Even if the entire June issue of First Monday was dedicated to Women Who Mean Business in our community, we still wouldn’t be able to feature them all. The task of featuring only a handful becomes more and more difficult each year. Once again, all the women who are featured on our cover this year have been nominated by their peers. They represent the financial sector, retail, industrial, home based businesses, food and beverage sector, not for profit and community service. They juggle careers, busy family lives, and volunteer in what spare time they have. Their lives are so busy that most of them have difficulty coming up with what they do to nurture themselves and to find some “me” time.
Lorrie Williams has been the official photographer for all 11 years of our June covers. Lorrie is an accomplished businesswoman herself and we are grateful for the time she puts in each year to do this photo shoot. Congratulations to our 11 women featured this year, and to all those women in our community who are also deserving to be recognized.
