In Like a Lion

March is known to come in like a lion and go out as a lamb. But March is also Women’s History Month and the only lambs are the women who sacrificed everything to brave the wilderness of equality.
So it only seems fitting that our guest speaker this month is Sara Canuso, president of Women That Influence. Sara will be sharing, 3 Steps to Ignite Your Mindset, Power & Influence at Valleybrook Country Club on March 10th from 6:30-8:30pm.
I feel so blessed because all my life I have been surrounded by women that influence, starting with my mother. Growing up I thought I never wanted to be like my mom. Now I thank my lucky stars that I grew up to hold the same ideals that she lived by.
Today I had the honor and privilege of helping one of the first professional women that influenced my life. She came into the Atlantic County Housing Recovery Center to sign her grant to rebuild her home that was destroyed by Super Storm Sandy. Catherine was one of three owners of GraphicData…and the only female. Back in the 80’s, the printing industry was predominantly run by men. She was fierce and strong when needed, and nurturing and loyal to her employees. With her help, I grew strong, too.
In fact, I’ve been fortunate to work for a number of successful and influential women. When I was Vice President of the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey, I worked for and along side of two amazing women, Debra DiLorenzo, President and CEO and Kathleen Davis, Executive Vice-President. From these two women, my strength took on a new dimension–confidence.
But there is no doubt that beside my mom, Sandra Yancey, Founder and CEO of eWomenNetwork, was the woman that had the most profound influence on who I am today.
I dedicate Women’s History Month to these and many others who were brave enough to let their voices be heard.
     Which make me realize, I was wrong earlier…those women were not sacrificial lambs, they were the LIONS and we can still hear them ROAR!
Looking forward to getting together on March 10th at Valleybrook Country Club so we can celebrate YOU and the Women That Influence in YOUR life!

Thank you,
Marilyn
