Don’t get me wrong, it’s still no picnic for women starting a business, but nowadays there are a lot more institutions and consumers who finally realize that women-owned businesses are for real and make real money for the economy.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 08, 2018
The year 2018 holds two major milestones for Mary Herrell-Paul: ten years in the Fox Valley as owner of Keen Limousine, one of the first women-owned transportation businesses in the area, and thirty years overall in the transportation industry. “Just don’t ask me my age,” joked the ever youthful Herrell-Paul.
Herrell-Paul, a retired U.S. Army veteran, took time this month to reflect on the new challenges and opportunities for women-owned small businesses. “It was a lot tougher thirty years ago,” noted Herrell-Paul. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s still no picnic for women starting a business, but nowadays there are a lot more institutions and consumers who finally realize that women-owned businesses are for real and make real money for the economy.”
Herrell-Paul’s companies, Crown Cars and Limousines and Keen Limousine, which was recently voted Best Limo Service by Kane County Chronicle Reader’s Choice Awards for the ninth year, will be celebrating her milestones with a series of special promotions in 2018. “I think it’s important to say thanks to my customers. I wouldn’t be here without them. They’ve trusted me with their safety and the safety of their families for years now,” concluded Herrell-Paul.
