FEMALE CENTRIC COMPANIES TO GO SUPPORT
There are so many companies out there that were started by women and give back to not only women but also the community. These companies have all started from the ground up just like AngeLink, and all of the CEO’s and Founders have become inspirational Girl Bosses, like our own Gerry Poirier. These companies are an inspiration to females everywhere, and we should support them like we do our own.
