I wish every business leader could have been with me earlier this month for a powerful week of being inspired. Too many of us bury our heads in our offices and miss out on the growth and innovation that come with simply being “out there.” By leaving your office, you open yourself up to learning and, by sharing new thoughts and ideas, inspire people throughout your organization to do great work. Following are some of the tips that I learned while I was out of the office. By Kathleen Quinn Votaw

Women business owners thrive with confidence, conviction
For women starting their own businesses in Colorado, especially those entering non-conventional job sectors, get ready to bring the passion.

Hard work and chutzpah help, too. By Suzie Romig
