A very dear friend of mine is enjoying a public relations coup, and I am celebrating on her behalf. I can totally relate to her joy: it is so exciting to read about your company, your inspiration and your hard work, in someone else’s words.
I’ve known Carolyn Newman for over ten years. She is a breast cancer survivor, a mother and an amazingly spirited and innovative entrepreneur. She is bright and funny, and she took an immense health challenge and turned it around. Through her process of rehab and survival, Carolyn identified a market and created a product to fill a niche. She is tenacious. She has a “never give up” attitude.
Carolyn’s company, Warrior Wear Inc., is the result of her vision. “There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your product on store shelves and on the biggest internet sites in the world,” Carolyn is quoted at WomenandBiz.com. “Knowing that you have created something others want and need is pure satisfaction.”
A year ago, I was featured in WomenandBiz.com and my friends, including Carolyn, celebrated for me. Reading the story about Catalogs.com, Carolyn says, gave her the motivation to undertake a public relations effort.
It is important for women to tell the story of our business success. We need to share our inspiration and the lessons we have learned with other female entrepreneurs. We need to celebrate each other.
