I think it’s an amazing time right now because I think that the playing field has really never been more level than it is right now. I think there is just amazing opportunities that I don’t think were necessarily there 30, 40, 50 years ago for women to be just as successful as men traditionally have been in business. I think you are going to see more and more female COO’s, more and more female CFO’s, and more and more female CEO’s of companies, more and more women on the board of directors. I think it’s a really exciting time.
