Swing into Spring! (And support each other)

So much has been going on since I last connected with you. Not sure if you noticed it or not, but I took some time off in late February-early March, and did not send out a monthly update.

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Barb Novak

I was recently signing books at a GALentines event in Central Minnesota.

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Meghan Kelsey

#RealLifeWonderWoman — Meet Ingrid Christensen

Flipping through the newspaper at a cafe near her college campus, a help wanted ad caught Ingrid Christensen’s eye. At the time, her career path was uncertain – even as graduation from the University of Minnesota loomed in a matter of days. The job was to do administrative work with a language services provider in the Twin Cities. It sounded
