"I am especially honored to be added to the list of very accomplished entrepreneurs who were selected for this prestigious award in the past. Behind every entrepreneur is a wide support network, without which we could not succeed. Our staff, our extended network of family and friends, our business groups and advisors, all make our business successes possible. I am especially happy that there is such a strong support network for women today, and I want to thank the many people who have contributed to ALOM's success."
