    I saw the story on the growing ( do I dare say ) Stiletto Network movement and thought it was very interesting, overdue and inspiring. My question is .. does one need to be ” successful” to participate ? Is the successful definition in terms of career and family…career only…family only? I would love to benefit from the power of strong …connected and emboldened women. I am a 55 year old who has interrupted her career several times for her son’s illness and then later for her own ( breast cancer) and more recently for her aging parents…only to now be faced with foreclosure and bankruptcy. I need to have an encore career a new chapter . A protracted and costly divorce years ago ..a stay at home mom who redirected her career several times…unsuccessfully in many people’s eyes but now am at a loss about what help there is out there for someone like me. I have a lot to offer. A college degree…part of a masters , previous a series 7 license but I am unemployable so it seems in this market and while I have many entrepreneurial ideas…lack the resources in many ways to stay afloat never mind start a business. Is it too late for me to be successful…do I not have anything to offer women in these networks or can I offer my resilience, perseverance and wherewithal and compassion for those facing similar adversity in exchange for some practical hands on help.

    This Stiletto Network has me very excited. I have ordered Pamela’s book and shall learn more. Though I am not yet at the top rung on the success ladder as a professional businesswoman, the path before me is clear. Just making friends is enough of an attraction for me. If such a network does not exist in Denver, I’m the woman to start it. Turn me loose!

    My phone number here in Colorado is 720.253.6732 if anyone wants to call me for any reason.. My email address is positivetc@gmail.com.

    Here’s to new friendships.

We’re moving away from the corporate model. We’re coming into an era where women have the skill sets and core value systems. Being collegial, collaborative, checking your ego at the door… able to work in a non-hierarchical environment, listening, attuned to intuition. These are increasingly all characteristics of senior leaders. Women have that capacity, as mothers and sisters and preservers of the family. When we come through this period, I think we’ll find many more women at the senior level.”
