Bossy Like Me is a monthly interview series for and about women small business owners and pioneers. As I continue to run a small coffee shop in New Orleans, I am constantly searching to learn more about the habits, rituals, and learning strategies of other successful women. What are they reading? What are thinking about? How do they continue to get more effective in their field? It is through this type of storytelling that we pass along lessons of success to one another. That we lift up other women towards success.
