The Breadwomen Project of Redefining Success

 

The Breadwomen Project is about shining a light on an issue that nobody is talking about.   As a society, we simply don’t know how to discuss it and Mrs. Relationship-Challenged CEO doesn’t realize her challenges are shared by others.

The Breadwomen Project is a unique community where both woman and men share their thoughts, ideas and experiences about the changing roles of women and men.  It also provides a forum for my team of experts to introduce themselves to my community.

I invite you to listen in and join the conversation!
