As a woman in business, you will always have lots of balls in the air, including the activities of running your business and being strategic in your decisions to grow your business. In many cases, [you also have] the role of being a wife, a mother, a daughter and a sister. The same traits that make us great in all of these roles are the ones that you will rely on to excel in business."

"The fastest-growing businesses in the Top 50 are all rapidly building on existing success, and our ranking recognizes the accomplishments of these remarkable entrepreneurial women." said Marsha Firestone Ph.D., president and founder of the WPO.
