"My beta readers’ feedback was that I had a best seller book. They loved the twenty incredible stories of some of the most famous women entrepreneurs in the world. The only thing missing was an image of these branding mavens. So how was I going to acquire twenty images of women across three centuries? That’s when Ida Hay came to my rescue. She embraced this project with enthusiasm that matched her incredible talent to bring these women to life.
I hope my words match her artistry."
