Before I start my blog today I need to state that I love women. I have an ex-wife, a current wife, three daughters and a mother who still spoils the hell out of me. Yes I love my mother and I am one of the few who never hides that. Might be the reason for the tension between my mother and my wife. But again I state that women for me are the reason for so much of who I am today. Good or bad I am blaming that all on the females in my life!
In my opinion women are the driving force in the design realm. Most of these powerful women that I have met in the design industry encourage, listen and nurture. Make no mistake they are some of the sharpest business people I have ever met. Their vibe is more about helping and encouraging which I find very refreshing. Maybe that is why I have spent a great deal of my time in this industry.
Today I wanted to name a few of the women in the design industry that influence me on a daily basis … outside of the Tastefully Inspired “Charlie Angels” of course! (Karina, Kathleen and Angela)
Beautiful, smart, inspiring……honestly that list can go on and on! Check out this ABC News Clip and get inspired yourself. If you blend a love for what you do, creative vision and a drive to succeed that is Meridith!
As I headed to the HDExpo a few years back it was clear to me who ran that show. Stacy was everywhere and I was impressed. For anyone looking to do it right in the design game the blueprint is Stacy Garcia!
Can anyone say “Podcast Envy”? She is awesome and one of my go to people when I want to bounce an idea of the creative wall. Check out her podcast and find out why! Well-Designed Business Podcast
I want to personally thank all these amazing women for inspiring so many people to achieve such great heights! Have an amazing international women’s day!
