Basically Pareto figured out that 80% of something comes…

Women, Life & Business ~ To Blog or Not To Blog. . .

By Linda S. Fitzgerald / October 6, 2014 /

To paraphrase the great bard, Shakespeare – that is the question!  In the days of modern technology when we can reach a world of women (and men) around the world with the click of a “like”; a 120 character tweet or via other social media platforms; I wonder why more women in business choose not to…
