Women in Business : Continued Support for Women-Owned Businesses ~ 2019 Forward

Back in August 2014, I shared information links that should have proved useful to women in business, particularly women-owned businesses. It's 2019 and I have been celebrating and honoring women all month long since March is Women's History Month. I wanted to reshare the link to my 2014 blog post and supply some updates. A lot can happen in 5 years.



My Aug 2014 Post:


UPDATES:

Press Release Dated April 20, 2018 | News | U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell of Washington ~ Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), urged continued support of the SBA/WBC (Small Business Administration’s Women’s Business Centers).  The action had to be taken because current POTUS wanted to cut funding for a program that is proving to be successful.

The President's FY2020 Budget was released during March 2019 and it appears there will be continued investment in the WBC. ~  The President’s Budget « CAMEO


Thank the Lord for women in politics who support women in business.

Quotes and Notes : Women in History: Countess of Blessington

Quotes found at Thoughtful Mind that may provide a peek into this gentle lady’s true nature:
  • “Prejudices are the chains forged by ignorance to keep men apart.”
  • “Superstition is only the fear of belief, while religion is the confidence.”


If you like to collect quotes or short biographical notes about women throughout history in various walks of life, please add this post to your collection.
Margaret, Countess of Blessington (1789 – 1849); Artist: Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769 – 1830); Wikimedia Commons
Marguerite (Power) Gardiner, Countess of Blessington was an Irish novelist.  A woman of high society, she was well known, particularly among literary circles as she had a literary salon at Gore House, Kensington.  One might think from the portrait she led a protected and cherished life, but a quick review of a few biographical facts will reveal much that can not be seen just looking at pretty face.  Deemed a woman of “rare beauty, generosity, and wit”, she wrote essays and sketches of London life.  She and the Romantic English poet, Lord Byron, appear to have been very close friends.  Her husband introduced them.  She wrote a book about their conversations.  There was at least the “appearance” of a friendship, however, some say she lived in her own world of make-believe when it came to their relationship.


To know more about the Countess here are a few suggested bio links:

Reading real biographies is awesome!
But creating fake biographies sure sounds like fun!
This teacher suggests using a tool to study biographies differently.  The tool is called "Fakebook".  Just pretend you work for the CIA and you're making up a fake dossier. :)














Hollywood Legends : Iconic Female Celebrities: Marilyn Monroe (1926 - 1962) (Guest Post)

Today, Marilyn Monroe would be 90 years old, but the diva passed away in 1962. Many people know her celebrity persona, and she still is viewed as an icon of beauty and femininity. But let’s take a look at her off screen personality. Here are seven (7) biographical facts. 

   

This marvelous timeline of photographs ~ "A picture of Marilyn for every year she was alive, 1926-1962." ~ was shared on Google Plus by Divine Riggio : Vintage Photographies of Human Life 







1. Marilyn Monroe was born June 1, 1926, Los Angeles, California.



2. Ms. Monroe feared that viewers would think of her as about a "frivolous fool", so she studied and rehearsed earnestly at various acting studios.



3. Despite the fact that Marilyn Monroe is considered a sex symbol, she confessed in her diaries: "I was always very physically clamped. I have always been sure that something is wrong with me."




Image credit:  Another photo shared by Divine Riggio on G+ ~ "A teenage Norma Jeane, later known as Marilyn Monroe. Circa 1940." 


 



4. Marilyn Monroe loved to read. More than 400 books were in her personal library. She did not finish high school and felt the need to continue her education on her own, not only to quench her thirst for knowledge but in order to be on par with others who were blessed to complete a formal education program.








5. Before becoming a famous actress, she worked at an aircraft factory, during the World War II. Her job was crucial, She was checked the serviceability of parachutes. One of the photographers, who was looking for "fresh faces" noticed her there. The rest, as they say, is history.



6. Marilyn Monroe ate very little and could spend an entire day drinking only orange juice. Yet she has never been skinny, according to today's “perfect size” standards (say size 5 by comparison to today's slim petite almost emaciated models who wear a size 2).







7. In order to become the wife of her third husband, Marilyn Monroe converted to Judaism. She was fond of Arthur Miller and trust him a lot. It was his betrayal that completely undermined her faith in people.



Over half a century later, Marilyn Monroe is still revered as a Hollywood legend, an ideal American beauty / diva. Her popularity has not dwindled. It is a pity that her life ended up so early or to quote another diva, Sir Elton John, she was like a “candle in the wind”.

Bio-Snapshot: Former Fitness Pro, Lisa Lowe

So! Just in case you were wondering what the end result would be if you combined bodybuilding and ballet training, look at the photographs below.  You might end up looking like former fitness pro Lisa Lowe.  Don’t know much about this person, but came across an interesting bio-snapshot of this lady. Collecting biographies (mini-bios, actually) is one of my hobbies. Most of the time my findings are shared via Pinterest. Sometimes, the links are recycled via other social media networks or at one of my blogs.  Ms. Lowe is no longer a professional competitor; she is married, a mother of two and resides in California.  If you are thinking about following in her footsteps, all I can say: She sure set the bar really high!! :)

For IFBB fitness pro Lisa Lowe, balance is everything. Which is pretty much what you’d expect from a former ballet dancer who began by studying with the San Francisco ballet, was admitted to the prestigious Julliard dance department, and then performed with the famed Alvin Alley dance troupe in New York City. Lowe, one of the most cerebral fitness professionals, earned her pro card at the 1998 Team Universe contest.

Ways Women Can Support Other Women

" ... While certain forms of competition can be healthy, the kind of claws out, Housewives of Atlanta style undermining that many women partake in is more worthy of the unflattering term, cat fight. As women gain momentum and presence in all aspects of life, we would do well to take heed of Albright’s ominous assertion. ... "

Florence Nightingale | Celebrating Women in History

March is Women's History Month.

May 12th is International Nurses Day. This special day has been celebrated since 1965. The date was chosen because it is the B-Day (birthday) for Florence Nightingale , a pioneer in healthcare and health reform, and the mother of modern nursing. 
"We are all ordinary people. But some of us are motivated to do extraordinary things. I am always curious to know what drives or drove another individual to pursue a certain path in their life such that they end up leaving behind marks in history that endure forever. One such character I studied is Florence Nightingale."

In Memory Of:
Florence Nightingale
May 12, 1820 – August 13, 1910

Women in Science : Give Credit When Due

Celebrating Women's History Month.


There's a scripture that says we should "give credit where credit is due, and give honor to whom honor is due".  Don't know why, but it's easy to laud this principle and very difficult to apply it to real life situations. Anyway ... I don't think any of these women are bitter.  They probably consider that they were blessed to have the avenues and opportunities to use their talents and gifts for the greater good.  Women are like that.  Yeah they are!

Ever heard of any of these women? I hadn't until I came across these interesting BIO snapshots.

Interesting tidbit:
  • Emilie du Chatelet was named Gabrielle-Emilie; however, friends in her circle which included Voltaire {Francois-Marie Arouet (1694 - 1778), who later took the name of Voltaire} dropped Gabrielle and just called her Emilie. Her husband's name was the Marquis du Chastellet. But because Voltaire called her du Chatelet, everyone else did too!  [Click the embedded link her name above to read more.]

I Was Here! - Women's History Month

The lyrics to this song are so profound. Sure! Everybody loves Beyoncé! But this particular song which she did in response to an invitation by the United Nations who asked her to use her celebrity status to help people in need around the world will always be one of her songs that should be remembered.
