It is time for The Business Magazine for Women. It is long overdue. We, women, are still fighting to be heard around the boardroom table.
With business magazines still carrying a conversation with the audience from a male perspective, it is time! Women aren’t even encouraged and supported in doing business the way we do business, our own way, more integrative, more teamwork, more cooperation. This magazine is overdue. We need this voice. Women need this voice. Girls need this voice. Men need this voice. We need to hear how women do business, how we do tech and startups, how we push for STEM, how we run for office, how we win competitions and become better people. This magazine is going to inspire us women to push through and follow our dreams. And it will inspire and make men think of us in a different way, in a partner and colleague way, not in a supportive role, secretarial or stewardesses way. We should be past that already. The mentality needs to change. This Business Magazine for Women will change that conversation.
We’re not the secretaries of the 1950’s! We’re CEOs and CTOs, and COO, and entrepreneurs, and astronauts, and race car drivers, and senators, and hopefully very soon, presidents of the most powerful nation on the planet. We need to have these stories told.
Women are the other 50% of the planet that’s been and continues to contribute to the families, to the communities, to the economic bottom line. It is time for a paradigm shift. It is time that women and girls be viewed for what we do, for what we contribute, for how we shape the world and influence history.

This premium publication is for women and for men. Women need to hear the other women’s voices. Men need to see that there is a distinct voice that has not been heard yet. Women do business differently. And every time I talk with a woman who’s either started her own business or who is working through taking over a senior position in her company, the difference is clear. We run businesses differently than men. And that works! The Business Magazine for Women is focused on how women do business, how we run companies, how to care of our constituents, how we protect our communities, how we fight for our country.
If a woman as qualified as Hillary Rodham Clinton is still forced to explain how her being a woman will affect the Presidency, we’ve not come far enough yet. There’s still work to do.
Help us get this first issue in the hands of every woman and girl in the English-speaking world. We all need an inspiration. Let this be it.
The main reason for building this Business Magazine for Women? I just couldn’t read yet another article about women and what women should do in the business world, written by a man. I couldn’t accept the fact that we, women, are keywords, to be used after forward slashes (/) on websites that are tooted to be the main business sites and publications around. There is only so much you can take as a woman that is contributing, and not want to do something about it. I am tired of not seeing women on the covers of business and tech magazines. I am tired of having this forced narrative being fed to me every time I go to the bookstore and see the row upon row of business magazine featuring men, and row upon row of lifestyle magazine featuring very young women, models mostly. I don’t believe that the world is made up of only business men and supermodels, and I don’t want to see that in my media anymore. Actually, this paradigm shift is long overdue.
Women are successful in whatever they chose to pursue, and that shouldn’t be something we have to explain, but it is. And when we, women, make the money, take charge and run our lives how we want, we still have to explain to some women and men in our society that being successful is not a male only prerogative.
