Tiffany honored as a 2010 “Woman of Influence” by Nashville Business Journal
Each year, Nashville Business Journal honors area business women as “Women of Influence” for their leadership and contributions to the community. This year, 30 women have been chosen for recognition in seven categories.
It’s hard to overstate the impact of women on the economy. In addition to their increasing roles in corporate leadership, women are the majority owners of 40 percent of small businesses in the United States, according to a study by The Center for Women’s Business Research in Washington, D.C. That amounts to 8 million businesses, 23 million jobs, and a $3 trillion impact on the American economy. To put that in perspective, the study points out that if women-owned businesses were their own country, they would have the fifth largest gross domestic product in the world — ahead of France, the United Kingdom and Italy.
