One of the blessings of entering the world of virtual tours is discovering terrific people whose drive and energy inspire me. Meet Sylvia Browder, a great promoter of small business and women entrepreneurs. I developed great respect for both in my former life as a journalist, which included a stint as business editor for The Times of Shreveport, Louisiana. I launched a second career a few years ago and now find myself running three small businesses. (It’s quite a challenge at tax time!)
Sylvia is founder of National Association Women on the Rise, for women entrepreneurs and authors, and CEO of Browder Consulting Group, a virtual small business consulting firm. She helps women realize their dream of business ownership.
Perhaps Sylvia and I will cross paths again soon, and not just virtually — we have connections in the Gulf Coast region. She graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University and lives in Mobile, Alabama, a lovely city I’ve often had occasion to visit.
Here’s her Q&A with me as author: http://sylviabrowder.com/community–news/martha–h–fitzgerald.html/ As a promoter of empowerment, she had a very interesting question. I had to give that answer a great deal of thought.
Sylvia: What is your POWER WORD?
Martha: Dance! That word lifts the spirits. It makes one smile, fills the heart with joy and laughter. That may be why I enjoy zumba so much!
