Top women-owned businesses directory.


ABM has been a leader in recognizing women in business. For example, graced on our cover this issue is Carolyn Robinson, co-owner of SprocketHeads LLC, a top women-owned business. Each August, and in the months in between, we celebrate women who do business, and do it well, in this great state.

But August is our month to really highlight these businesses. Featured are our Top Women-Owned directory, three features on top women-owned businesses, and an article by Shelly Ciarella of KeyBank on successful women-owned businesses and how they share traits. Included in Ciarella's article are statistics on women in business and lots of good information for women who own businesses and tips to keep their businesses successful. Also we have a story on Rosewood Coaching LLC, a women-owned business, as part of our monthly View From the Top special feature.

We hope you enjoy this spectacular issue and find reading about many of the successful women-owned businesses in the state interesting and eye-opening.
