Amazing women.

As a woman publisher, I am pained when I see how women are depicted in the media. We are targeted, not talked to. We are exploited, not supported. We are somebody's something, never who we really are. And that perspective has everything to do with the publisher's own life experience, attitude and outlook. I have a saying - "You cannot walk in my shoes until you have walked my path." A man will never be able to tell my story, or understand what it means to be a woman and walk in my shoes.

Life is about zigging and zagging. Things rarely happen in a straight line. 674 days ago I took on a new retail business and life that has literally consumed my creativity, my time, my financial resources and my heart. My business is ZÖE, which is the Greek word for "life". It is a retail shop that focuses on curated shoes + objects, but more than that, it is a place where stories are shared, and lived. Running an independent retail business has given me even greater insight to our world as women.

Refocusing SKY from a business perspective has been on my mind. I have been approached by other publications to collaborate but I feel that the intentions are not in line with my own. They seem to be more interested in using my brand and voice to build theirs, but somehow that just makes my stomach turn, and in fact is the reason I no longer make six digits in the corporate world.

Our voice as women is too important to be left to someone who would use it for their own purposes. SKY is a woman's perspective. Created by women. For women. About women. It is our voice. It always has been. There have been a million reasons to walk away, but being heard is the one reason that I am staying.
