Pay It Forward

Progress for women inbusiness has been slow, if not stalled, in the past couple of years. Although, we are still starting more businesses than our male counterparts, we are not moving up the corporate ladder with as much success as we had in the 90s. My solution is simple. Pay it forward. Yes, it is the title of a 2000 movie, and a concept thatprovides an opportunity to make sure that all good deeds are rewarded by paying forward the debt. But if all businesswomen took the concept to heart, and formally helped another woman in business get ahead the way someone had helped them, we would make progress. Start supporting women in business and ask each one you help to pay it forward.
