July Global Broadcast
Note from Janet Hanson:
Last Friday, I was on a flight from Nantucket to NY with two magazines in my bag to read on my short flight. Entrepreneur magazine had a fabulous two-page piece on Anna Jerstrom, President of Calavera, her swimwear company for women surfers! MORE magazine had a picture of Mom Corps Founder Allison O'Kelly in the "Hire Calling" contest on page 8, and on page 50, there was a brilliantly written piece by Manisha Thakor on earning and investing. I was struck by what rockstars our members are and can only imagine how many other publications they were featured in!
