This publication of Simply Inspirational for Women in Business Journal™ Volume III is dedicated to women globally — women who are part of the collective mission to make women lives, free from violence, abuse and poverty. I hope that this journal will find its way to women across the globe and will have a positive impact upon their lives.
Simply Inspirational for Women in Business Journal™ is written by women for the empowerment of women. Every effort has been made to ensure that the presence of women is felt and seen in every aspect of the design and development of this publication. In this publication, the information contained is provided by the Editor in Chief, Dr. Cheryl Cottle and a few women who have taken the time from their busy lives to contribute an article that they believe will motivate and empower our readers. We have also introduced to the journal’s format a section for creative women, thus we also included an abbreviated short story by the author, Mrs. Valentine Joseph.
To the women who contributed to the development of this volume, we appreciate your contribution. Without your commitment, this journal would not reflect the diversity that the editor strives for.
Thanks for supporting me with my vision: to reach the world carrying goodwill and hope for a better tomorrow. I hope that by sharing this journal with the world, our readers will be informed, educated, motivated, inspired and empowered. “Individually we stand, but collaboratively we are a force that can combat any resistance; and like a rose bud, bloom into a beautiful rose. We are our best teachers, role models, leaders, motivators and agents of change."
To make my dedication more heartfelt, I want to thank my daughter Yvette-Michelle Cottle Darby, for her support in keeping my Women in Business dream alive and making this journal possible. You have been my number one fan. Thanks for believing in me!
From the Editor in Chief
Dr. Cheryl Cottle
