MARCH IS WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

Celebrating the Achievements of Women in Business.      (Taken from MBI Worldwide Newsletter, March 2015)

March is nationally recognized as Women’s History Month, highlighting the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, forty years ago women owned just 5% of all small businesses in America. Today, women own over 30%, creating 200,000 women-owned small businesses in the past year. These are our top five quotes from our favorite, inspiring women:

  1. “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”―Eleanor Roosevelt
  2. “I would rather stay positive and get 50 percent good results, than stay negative and get 100 percent bad results!”— Joyce Meyer
  3. “Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth.”—Julie Andrews
  4. “How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes!”—Maya Angelou
  5. “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”—Audrey Hepburn
