I already had the pleasure of interview Shetora Edlin an amazing friend, mother, and cook. Shetora started her own bakery company “Prissy Sweet Cake Treats” in the Washington, DC metro area. Her motivation for starting her own business she grew tired of the “routine”…get up, get ready for work, put in her 8 hours doing something I was less than passionate about, going home and doing it all again the next day. To me, that life is like dying a slow agonizing death! There is more to life than working and since I have to earn a living, I might as well do it by doing something I love and am in control of… I want to leave my daughter her own empire!” Her motivation behind the name of her company “I like for people to see me in whatever project I attach my name to and since my business was going to be cupcakes (started out as just cupcakes in the idea phase), they’d have to be the prettiest, girlish, daintiest cupcakes anyone has ever come across…Prissy Sweet Cake Treats would be where pretty & tasty meet!” For the full interview on Shetora Edlin you can read about her strengths, influence, weakness, her drive, and who is Shetora besides being an owner of “Prissy Sweet Cake Treats” https://rateds4superwoman.com/2014/03/26/shetora-edlin/

Congrats to Ms. Becky Hammon for becoming the NBA’s first full time female assistant coach. (They must have seen our previous post “Who’s Missing?” in the athletic world.)
“Hammon called her role as a pioneer “a tremendous honor.” But, she added of Popovich (Spurs Coach): “Honestly, I don’t think he gives two cents that I’m a woman. And I don’t want to be hired because I’m a woman.” The important point, Hammon said, was, “I’m getting hired because I’m capable.” (NYT).
