“So often in life things that you regard as an impediment turn out to be great good fortune.”
Ruth Bader Ginsburg

There is something incredibly inspiring about successful women in business, their ability to focus on their goals and their desire to overcome adversity and cross or leap right over hurdles that block their vision. In this issue, that’s exactly what we focus on, some incredible women in business that have forged their success one step at a time. You will have the opportunity to read these women’s stories throughout this issue. It is a real mix of personalities, and it is my privilege to call some of them friends, mentors and business associates. All of whom continue to amaze and inspire me with their ambition, confidence and tenacity for only the best. 

One year ago, I shared my story in the July 2021 issue and the journey as to how I landed in the position of publisher for this iconic magazine. As I reflect on that series of events, it continues to astound me at the opportunities placed in front of us every day. What we decide to do with those opportunities can be seen as something that strikes fear in us or motivates us to keep moving forward. As I often say, left foot, right foot, just keep walking while continuing to be aware of the goals in your crosshairs. 

As I mentioned in the July 2021 issue, we want our loyal supporters – readers and advertisers who are local, regional, national and international –  to feel exhilarated when they see our publication delivered to their doorstep. We are grateful for that exhilaration and devotion; without it, we cannot do what we do so well.

With appreciation,
Janice Carter Levitch Humphrey
