It’s the greatest honor of my business life to have been able to help millions of women through my TED Talk and thousands through the corporate leadership development programs I’ve delivered all over the world to women at all levels and from nearly every industry.

But my corporate audiences were limited by my availability and my TED Talk only tells you why you needed to close The Missing 33%. It doesn’t tell you how

So here I am giving you exactly the information, tool kits, and skills you need to close The Missing 33% and create the career of your dreams.

Be Business Savvy reduces the overwhelm from and confusion about the tsunami of career advice crashing toward you (I've found billions of pieces and more being written every day).

What's Business Savvy?

So Glad You Asked

In 2000, when I discovered The Missing 33% of the career success equation for women (and when I updated the research in 2023) I found that managers rated men as outperforming women in the areas of business, financial and strategic acumen.

That is a mouthful!

To shorten it, I could be using the term The Missing 33%. For example "Close The Missing 33%" but I thought you'd resonate with something more aspirational and inspirational.

"Be Business Savvy" fits the bill.

It's a shorter way of saying, "Build your business, financial and strategic acumen in order to close the 33% gap in the career success equation for women."

NOW even the logo makes sense!

By the way, see the star at the center of the logo?

That's you!

...shining with greater Business Savvy.
