On Tuesday, I had the good fortune to start my morning off with a bit of inspiration. Nani Marquina, whose innovative rugs have been carried by DWR for years now, was honored at an awards breakfast given by the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce and hosted the 2008 IWEC (International Women Entrepreneurial Challenge) Awards at the Harvard Club.
Barcelona-based Nani was among 11 other female recipients of the award, hailing from Africa, India, NYC and Spain. The awardees were chosen based on their success exporting their goods or services to the overseas marketplace.
Nani and the other honorees reminded me that we all bring so much more to our careers than just product. We each have a chance every day to inspire others and be great role models. Thanks Nani for making us proud to be representing your product and your integrity!
