    I LOVE Makers and this is so good! My 13 year old daughter is an entrepreneur at this age already and it’s amazing to see that spirit so young. Take a look at her, you’d love her!

    I’m a long time follower and lover of your blog! I also attended your recent workshop on how to monetize a blog and can attest that you are just as dynamic and great in person as you are here. I love that you mention the small percentage of women serving in government at the highest levels in the United States. In fact, less than 25% of all elected positions (federal, state, and local) in the United States are held by women. I am lucky enough to work at a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, Running Start, that encourages young women to get involved in politics and run for office. We teach that the first step towards political parity (and parity in the workplace) is to be proactive, whether by asking for a raise or running for office yourself.

    Thanks for bringing attention to these important issues!

    I’ve never commented on your blog but this post really hit home. We’ve come a long way, but there’s a long way to go. I have an 18 year old daughter, and I hope she sees more changes in her lifetime. Great post. You go girl.

    Love this post, Meg!

    And the topic is something I’ve thought about so, so many times. Obviously, I run a blog dedicated to featuring professional women, and I would never want that theme to actually be a detriment to gender equality in business. But I do strongly feel that women specifically like to hear from other women. That’s not to say we don’t want to read the successes of men as well, of course!

    So in that way, defining a female entrepreneur is useful as a top level description, but perhaps not in comparison. If that makes sense! Post-lunch slump 🙂

    Anyway, thanks so much for posting such thought-provoking content! Always a treat reading your blog. – Nicole
