Business advice for women entrepreneurs and small businesses


No matter how hard technology tries, there will always be people holding and reading a book, newspaper or magazine during their day at some point. Reading a print publication is still a transformative occasion when readers are carried into another world or dissolve into the expertise of another person.

Many women entrepreneurs, with years of proven business expertise, contemplate whether 2016 is the year for them to see their name in print more often. Decades of business wisdom and personal knowledge is the groundwork needed to write or contribute to a book, newspaper or magazine. Copies of written work become a calling card for speaking opportunities locally, nationally and internationally.

Recently a few women entrepreneurs shared advice on the topic at an event. Their advice was too valuable to not share with my blog readers. I hope their inspires you to…

Rich. Bold. Addictive. Have I got your attention?

Blog_Chocolate PB Smoothie Bites

Nope, I’m not talking about coffee–I’m talking about chocolate! I found these David Bradley Chocolatier Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothies during a layover at JFK Airport at Harmony Health and Beauty.  From looking at the label, it appeared as if they were gluten-free but I contacted the manufacturer to confirm and they have assured me that they are. (Be aware, though, that their products containing pretzels, their graham crackers and their chocolate chip cookies, are NOT gluten-free.) Their tagline of “Rich.Bold.Addictive” is spot-on as this treat is all three. Enjoy!



Ancient Harvest Gluten Free Organic Quinoa Pasta Mentioned in Prevention

Preventions March 2013 issue touts a recipe for Spaghetti with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce and features Ancient Harvest Gluten Free Organic Quinoa Pasta. The pasta is apparently GMO-free and sold in seven different cuts.
Prep time for the recipe is 15 minutes with a total time of 25 minutes. Nutritional information is included. Recipe appears on page 125.  So glad to see more gluten-free products spotlighted in magazines these days!

Happy cooking!

“Sneaky” Celiac Disease mentioned in Natural Health Magazine

The January/February issue of Natural Health Magazine features a blurb on page 28 discussing how–according to the Mayo Clinic–about 1.8million people have celiac disease. It also mentions–according to a study published in
The American Journal of Gastroenterology–that about 1.6million people are eating gluten-free. If that’s the case, here’s my question: why is a loaf of gluten-free bread (and other products) still so expensive? I’m currently paying between $5.50 and $6 per loaf at my local (chain) grocery store.  How about you?



Gluten-free Flour Info in Yoga Journal

In case you missed it, p. 22 of the December issue of Yoga Journal spotlights four gluten-free flours in their “mix it up” blurb. Bob’s Red Mill, Namaste Foods, Arrowhead Mills and Pamela’s are all mentioned. I am always pleased to see the mention of gluten-free products in the various publications to which I subscribe.  If you enjoy yoga and living well, I highly recommend a subscription to Yoga Journal.

Following are links to the companies mentioned above:

Gluten-Free Vodka seen in THE GOOD LIFE central new york MAGAZINE

For those of you in the CNY area–or those planning to visit–check out page 54 of the November/December issue of
THE GOOD LIFE central new york MAGAZINE. You’ll find a blurb in their Holiday section about Beak & Skiff Farm Distillery’s premium small-batch apple vodka. As you’ll see from the photo, there is a sticker on the bottle that classifies it as “Gluten Free!” I had the pleasure of visiting Beak & Skiff last fall and found it to be quite the local treasure. I would highly recommend a visit. Makes for a nice family outing when the apples are ready for picking. I would also recommend picking up a copy of THE GOOD LIFE; it is an intelligent, beautifully crafted publication that highlights the best of CNY.

Gluten-Free Mention in Natural Health Magazine

In the November/December issue of Natural Health, there is an article titled, “10 Ways to Go Natural” on page 16.
Tip No.7 is about finding a “nicer” rice cereal. Rice Krispies is mentioned for its “slightly healthier and gluten-free version” of the original well-loved cereal. Now, children (and adults alike!) can enjoy Rice Krispies Treats or even a bowl of this brown rice-based cereal. Kudos to both Natural Health for the mention and to Kellogg’s for recognizing the growing gluten-free community.
