Pearls In Her Profession
A pearl starts as a foreign particle; over time, concentrated layers of crystalline aragonite surround it. They are highly valued as gemstones—admired for their iridescence, luster and naturally occurring spherical shape! Pearls in her Profession!
What a perfect metaphor for female entrepreneurs! Like the small particle that begins of Pearl… we start out with a will to succeed… then create our persona through the many layers of experiences and skills we amass!
Alone, we shine… however, our feminine nature is to share ideas… bringing us together to form a “String of Pearls”… strong, sophisticated, complex, and flexible! Over time, a single pearl can evolve into an iridescent beauty and gain admiration… and in the same way, one special person can ignite the world around us to such an extent that we feel compelled to honour her achievements!
