My last name is also frequently mispronounced. Admittedly, Hutzell-Rodman is a mouthful. Yet a surprising number of people think my last name is Rodham, as in Hillary Rodham Clinton. Politics aside, one cannot deny that she has been a career-minded woman.
Perhaps part of the reason why people mispronounce my name is because my normal attitude towards life is “I can,” as in “Yes, I can find sponsors for an annual car show.” “Yes, I can write another 800-word article and turn it in today.” While I cannot do everything, this attitude has helped many women in their careers.
That’s one common theme with the women in this issue. They can. Our second annual Women in Business edition highlights some incredible businesswomen. They can collaborate, code websites, manage banks, move boxes in high heels, run a bar, head a school, even own a mobile business.
I loved reading about the strengths of the incredible women in this magazine.
Along with being the Women in Business special edition, this magazine includes the Best of B2B ballot, which can be found on pages 55 and 56. Now is the business community’s chance to vote on everything from best commercial cleaning service to best place to eat a business lunch. We’ll reveal the results of the contest in April.
