Years ago, as a young woman sitting on the edge of my seat in a theatre in San Francisco, my life was forever altered.

I was mesmerized by Eve Ensler’s live performance of the Vagina Monologues.

I knew right then and there that I wanted to focus on empowering women. From that day forward, I knew that I wanted to lift the female spirit just by the way I lived my life.

Whether it was being a loyal sister, a mentor, or just being available for my girlfriends during a time of need, I had made a conscious shift in how I wanted to interact with other women. From that moment forward, I wanted to find ways to improve and positively impact the lives of my SISTERS.

Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of meeting and collaborating with many strong, powerful, and amazing women — women who are passionate about serving other women.

Today, I am ecstatic to be helping women on a whole new level.

In honor of International Women’s Day, I’ve put together a list of ten remarkable women in business.

These women are transforming the lives of entrepreneurs and small business owners all over the world.

They are savvy and shrewd. Succinctly put, they inspire me and that is why I want to share them with you on this special day.

Not in any particular order, here is the list:

  • Marie Forleo – She’s smart, funny, and has a great video business tip every Tuesday.

  • Anita Campbell – CEO and publisher of the award-winning online publication for small business owners, and entrepreneurs.

  • Pamela Slim – Escape from Cubicle Nation Pamela is a champion for workers who want to escape the corporate world and transition to entrepreneurship.  Pamela’s business blog is the only one I consistently read.

  • Laura Roeder – Roeder Studios Inc. She simplifies technology for small businesses and entrepreneurs.

  • Sandra Yancey – eWomen Network Widely recognized as the Premier Women’s Business Network in North America.  She’s built a phenomenal community of professional business women.

  • Lynn Twist – The Soul of Money No book has shifted my reality about money more than The Soul of Money.  It made me step back and get very clear about my own issues with money.

  • Amber Naslund – Brass Tack thinking Amber has a gift for the written word and she uses it well to make her point when it comes to business and life.
