It’s a new year, and we are excited to bring you our first blog chat! These interviews with inspirational people in a variety of fields from artists to community activists, educators and entrepreneurs, are so uplifting for us. A little over a week ago I chatted with Shanise Morris, a young talented entrepreneur whose background spans communications / writing, culinary arts, poetry and painting. What is such a multifaceted person to do? Why become your own boss of course! She recently founded Plush Plum Events, which specializes in event design and planning.
Shanise is part of a steady trend as increasingly women combine professional experience and education to start businesses. According to statistics gathered by the Center for Women’s Business Research (2009), “one in five firms with revenues of $1 million or more are owned by women.”
Yes. Women entrepreneurs rock! So relax, put up those feet, and watch our interview. We’re sure Shanise will inspire you, too!
