How do you become an incredible female business owner? Watch one in action. Take notes. Repeat.

That’s what I’ve been doing ever since I met the dynamo that is florist Natalie Ransom of Pozie by Natalie. When we started working together, she already had her ducks in a row: a great web site, oodles of social media followers, solid professional relationships, service to her community, and so much more. She didn’t need marketing advice because she was already killing it with her creativity, generosity, and hard work. But that’s where our fun began. What could we do together to take her marketing strategy and business a step further?

In March, Natalie was recognized by Bellingham-based video production company Talking to Crows ‘Women Among Us’ campaign. Each day in the month of March, they’re sharing about the powerful women in our community. They are celebrating Women’s History Month by noticing the women making history right now. I was also honored to be recognized.

In the same month, my article about her appeared on the blog of Miss Millennia Magazine, How to Be an Incredible Female Business Owner. The site focuses on mentoring millennial women to be their best and Natalie makes a fantastic role model.

Read my article to discover what I’ve learned by watching her in action. Then check out her web site and follow her on Facebook and Instagram because you’ll be seeing a whole lot more of her in the coming months and years.

Honoring the ‘Women Among Us’

Talking To Crows Women_Among_Us Campaign

Talking to Crows annual campaign.

As a female business-owner and artist, International Women’s Day and their 2017 theme, Be Bold for Change, means a lot to me. Just a few decades ago, I might not have been able to be a female sole proprietor. Its funny how quickly we can forget the flaws of our past culture…and how those flaws still linger in pockets of our world.

I am so thankful for the women who have paved the way before me. The powerful female writers, business-owners, mothers, scientists, actors, filmmakers, and directors, activists, and thinkers have earned my gratitude and made my life and work easier, more successful, and just. This month, during Women’s History Month, I am reminded of their sacrifice that has provided my privilege.

Whenever I can, I try to pay that privilege forward to other women (and deserving men as well). I recently found a few women doing great things for our community who are also paying it forward.

Stacy Reynolds and Cassidy Young of female-majority owned, Bellingham-based video production company Talking to Crows has launched a new annual campaign: Women Among Us. Each day in March, they recognize one woman from our community that is making history right now. I was delighted to write two articles about this campaign, one for the print publication, Southside Living, and another shared at WhatcomTalk.com. The Southside Living article focused on Magdelena Theisen of Magdalena’s Creperie in Fairhaven, WA and the WhatcomTalk.com article highlighted Western Washington University Professor of English, Dr. Laura Laffrado.

I am delighted to be one of the amazing, powerful women being recognized in this year’s campaign. You can honor the women who’ve come before us and support ‘Women Among Us’ by taking a look and following their Facebook page, Instagram account, and Website posts and sharing their campaign with others.cascadia international women's film festival
I’m also honored to be working with CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival. Their event on April 20-23 showcases films by women directors from around the world. They also present workshops, networking events, and panel discussions that aim to promote women’s education and the Bellingham, Whatcom County, WA area as a filmmaking and viewing destination that supports the local economy.

Supporting incredible women through my writing, work, and actions are so very important to me. Thank you for helping me honor the incredible women in our community and world.
