Topics & Themes
“I appreciated your insightful words on being women in business and, more broadly, on ways to make a living and make a difference. I, too, enrolled in an Economics course in university and eventually withdrew because I couldn’t say ‘profit margin’ without gagging.”
-Natasha J., Seattle, WA
