“It’s important to challenge the bias this International Women’s Day and every day. Having owned and operated my own business for 20 years, there have been many times that I’ve both seen and experienced biases in the industry. Breaking down those barriers was both challenging and rewarding. Know that growing a business takes time and patience. Be yourself, YOU are your own superpower. Embrace what makes you unique, always trust your gut instinct, and strive to break the glass ceiling – better yet, live life like there is no ceiling. And live it without paying any attention to any bias.“
