ARE YOU A WOMAN ON A MISSION?
Women on a Mission Interviews began in the summer of 2007 and since then we have interviewed hundreds of visionary women for our magazine. The women we have interviewed are from all walks of life and all parts of the globe. AND we are constantly on the lookout for “Women on a Mission,” women who are running successful businesses, or the leaders in their profession. These women and giving back to their communities and society with their time, talent and treasure.
The women we interview have a strong focus on community service. Our readers are interested in the organizations you/your company supports, why you chose them, who has influenced you in your professional development and what your goals are for the future. They also want to why you started your company or work in your chosen profession, your vision and your mission.
If you are actively involved in a community organization or nonprofit either in a leadership capacity as a volunteer or paid staff, or if you are the founder of one, this is the interview for you. This is your chance to espouse the virtues of organizations close to your heart, that have made a difference in your life or the lives of others in your circles in a meaningful way. Women on a Mission want to showcase their community support in a major way.
