Bachelor & bachelorette party attendees hit up the bars & pools, Spring Training fanatics linger, and retirees & more flock to the Scottsdale & Phoenix area this time of the year for some sun.

Being one of three daughters, I grew up with quite a bit of that feminist energy, and now that I’m a business owner I have even more respect for the women I know who are out there killing it in their fields. I wanted to use today to honor the women – who I’ve worked with, who I’ve admired from afar, who I’ve competed against, who I’ve simply grabbed coffee with, and…

I have a love/hate relationship with marketing books, because so many these days are irrelevant within…
