Trophy Wife

I’m honored to say that I am now a “Trophy Wife”.

Ok, maybe not in the way that society typically thinks of what that is, but it’s a condensed way of saying “Award-winning Entrepreneur who is also a Wife & Mother.”

Thanks to the many who voted for me, I am proud to say that I won the Western Massachusetts Women Magazine’s TOP WOMEN TO WATCH, 2013-14, for my category (beauty industry).

thanks

Over the next year, I’m going to continue proving I’m worthy of the title.

You’re definitely going to want to watch this woman – AND her TEAM – because we have some pretty awesome stuff in store for you!

More than being a trophy wife (by my definition) I hope to be a really great role model for my younger cousin, Trelynn.  She is smart and witty, and would make a kickass entrepreneur if she decides to take that route.

On that topic, here’s a look at inspiring things for women.

My favorite book in the entire world is one that I read as a little girl: The Paperbag Princess. 

I recently read this article on Project Eve about Female Role Models, and I read this great article about 19 Best Paying Jobs For Women for which I’ve included the infographic here for you to see!

(yes, I read a lot)

  • Thailand is the country where the percentage of female entrepreneur is the highest in the world followed by Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and China.

  • Women are starting new firms at twice the rate of all other businesses.
  • 40% of businesses owned in the USA are by women!

Trophy Wife. Yah, that’s me!
