Twenty-first Century women are closer than ever to “having it all.” We’ve come a long way baby from the corsets, girdles, beehives and typewriters of previous generations. And while it’s true women have always had savvy and been savvy, today we can show it off and share it with the world.
HerSavvy is the product of a networking group for professional women in Nashville, Tennessee, known as B3 or “Building Better Business.” B3 began in 2009 as way for women to support each other, problem solve and enhance their professional lives. In short, B3 is a safe place for professional women to grow and develop. The group continues to meet weekly in the wee hours of the morning for what the members call the “B3 fix.” The sessions are so inspiring, the members decided to share their enthusiasm with the world in this blog. In the pages of HerSavvy you can expect to find personal stories, professional advice and exploration and, of course, lots of fun!
So who are the women of HerSavvy? We are doctors, lawyers, writers, business owners, engineers, bankers, performers, artists, mothers, daughters, sisters, wives and friends. We challenge each other, inspire each other, support each other. We live our lives with savvy and invite you to be a part of our savvy world!
