As you no doubt know after the bevy of International Women’s Day posts last week, March is Women’s History Month. In honor of all the boss babes in our lives, we would like to list some of our favorite Women-Owned businesses that make our worlds go round! These women show dedication in their day-to-day work, and we hope to not only highlight them as part of celebrating this month, but to also celebrate their well-deserved success. They also all happen to be our clients, so be jealous that we get to spend our work hours with such fascinating female founders!
