As if my family and Anchor/Reporter job at Fox Chicago didn’t keep me busy enough, here I am spending my day off blogging! Well, I just can’t help myself after meeting and getting to know many of the women pictured above. They are moms, entrepreneurs and businesswomen – part of a far more influential tech community in Chicago than you may think. For me, they’ve been pure inspiration and, perhaps, the sisters I never had.
My tech mentors have taught me to use social media far more effectively. I now approach my news assignments differently and I’ve surprised myself with my ability to multi-task while reporting from the field and anchoring in the studio.
There are others on the internet who’ve guided and encouraged me but here’s to some of the amazing women who’ve pushed me to make this blog a reality and to grow in new ways. Get to know them, too. Who knows what they may inspire you to do!
