Mad Men? More like MAD Women.
5-ish questions answered about being a successful woman in the business world.
If you’ve ever watched Mad Men, you might have gained a little insight into understanding just how far women have come in the business world, especially in the field of marketing. We no longer are expected to fetch coffee or sit quietly in meetings and take notes. Instead, we are leading meetings where our insights and opinions matter. Oh, and we get our own coffee and take our own notes too, because yes, we are excellent multi-taskers.
So, how is this relevant? Well, I’m glad you asked. Today, is National Business Women’s Day. The day was first supported by the American Business Women’s Association in 1982 and later recognized by Congress in 1983 to celebrate the accomplishments of women in the workforce. To celebrate this day, I sat down with MADlab’s owners, Deidra Langstaff and Mary Beth Hobby, to answer 5-ish questions about being successful women in the business world.
