This month, we honor women - who have had (and continue to have) to work 3x as hard to get ½ the pay and recognition of their male counterparts. For those of us who have broken glass ceilings and are bent on blazing the trail for the rest of us, we feel you, and are behind you in spirit AND action! I am grateful every single day for all of it - the small missteps, the resistance to doing our thing, and especially the big failures, for they have become the silver linings that have enabled me to practice in action empowerment of women through the
organizations I’ve led and the ones that have yet to unfold.
“October is National Women's Small Business Month, a time in which we celebrate the progress and achievements of women-owned businesses. With over 13 million women-owned
businesses in the United States today, they are leaving a lasting impact on the nation's economy*.”
So, ladies go on and keep doing your thing! Go get what’s yours and jump at the opportunity. If you’re doing it right, you will be scared, and you will get pushback. If you need a dose of courage, hit me up – we got you!

Financial Checkup – BPR’s Financial / Accounting checkup
Is the 1st step getting dialed in, because you’ll walk away knowing where gaps exist and with a roadmap for next steps. Meet with one of our sharp AND personable advisors for this one-off Consulting tool/session PRIOR to year-end, even if you’re not ready for a full on Accounting overhaul.
This section highlights how BPR gives back to the community every month, driven by our commitment to
women and historically underrepresented entrepreneurs.
