Whenever we talk about Boss Lady Coaching's mission, you won't hear us focus on empowering women. Women already have power and don't need me or anyone else to give them permission to use it. Instead we believe in the power of mentorship and set out to create a network that sponsors women into positions of influence.

As we look back over the last year, it's incredible to see how far the BLC team and our network of Boss Ladies have come.

I once went out for coffee with an influential community leader who I had only met in passing at group meetings but not had the pleasure of talking to one-on-one.

"Don't take this the wrong way, but you're way better at this than I thought you'd be."

As one of my Board members tried to convey a well-intentioned compliment, I realized he was giving me a valuable tool- insight into my own secret weapon. When I became CEO of our organization, I not only became responsible for the results delivered by our staff, I inherited 20 new bosses in the dedicated and diverse volunteers who serve on our Board of Directors.
