2022

ON THE COVER

Kathy Leake

“As a serial entrepreneur, persistence and resilience are the top two qualities you must possess to get you through times of extreme adversity. Afterall, the easiest thing to do is give up. What’s hard is seeing it through no matter what.”

The “big five”: openness, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.”

Keisha & Teagan
Simpson

“The toughest challenge we faced was overcoming our own fears. Were we going to fail? What were people going to think? Is this a stupid idea? Are we naive to think that we can make a real difference? We were fortunate to have the support of each other and our family and as twins and co-founders, we were embarking on this experience as a team which allowed us to take turns leaning on each other. Having a community that loves and supports you is so important to be able to go the distance.”

“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”

Entrepreneur

“Lack of resources and support for women entrepreneurs lowers their chances of success. But this problem can be partially overcome through crowdfunding initiatives by socially validating female-led ventures.”

Healthcare

“New variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, arise through mutations when the virus replicates in an infected host’s cells”

Enza Alexander

“ The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. ”

Sabrina Horn

“Staying in close alignment with your core values over time protects a company and its brand, holds it close and forces realignment when problems and shifts occur,”

Sports

“As temperatures warm, ski and snowboard resorts are investing more in snowmaking and seeing their seasons shrink. Those costs roll down to customers in an already expensive sport.”

Emmanuelle Ganne

“The pandemic has shown that going digitalization is not only a nice to have, it is a must have,”

“ A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.”

Clāra Ly-Le

“You may be the only person to make your dream come true. Speak and take action for what you want. I believe that if I can do it like many other talented women leaders are doing it, then so can you!”
