RoseRyan was just named one of the Bay Area’s Top 100 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area by the San Francisco Business Times. I am very proud to be a part of a company to receive this honor. To learn we are ranked No. 35 in an outstanding lineup was humbling, and the women who spoke at the September 24 awards presentation were inspiring. Each was asked to say something in 15 words or less about what it takes to be successful (my favorite was “Having a husband who enjoys taking care of kids and cooking.”)

The Bay Area is a competitive marketplace where just owning a business and keeping people employed is a true success. Being honored as one of the Top 100 is just icing on the cake. Women are critical in business.
