This month, In Business Magazine honors 14 women of achievement. These accomplished women are dedicated to their communities and successful in business, and their leadership inspires others. The editorial group at In Business Magazine sought to recognize those women who not only demonstrate these characteristics, but work hard to empower others to exude excellence as well. These exceptional women are introduced in our cover story.

We celebrate achievement in much that we do and enjoy the triumph of success in our careers and lives. Reflection allows us to better understand and appreciate our achievements and chart the course for future endeavors. This looking back inspires and energizes us with determination and courage to succeed.

I believe businesses are great creative endeavors. We take ideas and invent something new or provide a newly interpreted perspective, bringing that creativity to life. It takes extraordinary women with wisdom, talent and grace to make dreams come true. The legacy of successful women is found in every aspect of their lives.

A concept that aligns with achieving excellence is corporate social responsibility. This topic is explored in the Roundtable feature of this September issue. Women and men who have achieved success are engaged in philanthropy, volunteering and advocating for good. Their values and actions resonate with what it means to be a good corporate citizen and create positive change.

Communication is the subject of another feature article — communication of a business’s confidential information that is, therefore, actually part of its intellectual property. This company communication, whether intended for internal or external distribution, should be properly guarded, and a local attorney discusses important aspects for businesses to be aware of.

With its standard mix of information on healthcare, technology, commercial real estate, legal aspects of business practices – and even where to head for lunch and what wheels to use to drive there – In Business Magazine presents this September issue.

I am privileged to be the recipient of the 2017 Lifetime Achievement award, which will be presented at the annual Women of Achievement event on October 6th. Being recognized for my perseverance, commitment to community and women’s advocacy is a profound honor.

It is my pleasure to assist in bringing you this issue of In Business Magazine. Please enjoy your read..
