have seen the role of women in business defined numerous ways over the years. Just how effective and dynamic can women be in the work place? Do women have a tough time in business? Is it all about charisma and positive thinking? Power dressing? Decisiveness?  Is it meant only for the chosen few to rise to the top? I have come to the conclusion that leadership is for every women, every day. It's how we should live our life's, once we find the courage to speak out we can effectively and positively influence others and take control of our destiny.
