As a certified minority- and woman-owned (WBENC) business, we at Lift Your TableⓇ folding table risers look not only to the past for business leaders, but also to the present (and future). We enjoy sharing our knowledge and experiences with other entrepreneurs and businesses, because the world is one of abundance. We don’t believe in hoarding, because a rising tide lifts all boats!

In addition to Madame C.J. Walker, who we wrote about last week, there are plenty of other women business leaders that inspire us ahead of International Women’s Day March 8. Do you share our admiration for these ladies, or have others that you look up to?
