When I look back at many of the strong women who have inspired me both personally and professionally, I think Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is among the most influential. In a world where womxn were expected to comply, she famously said “I dissent.”
The Los Angeles Times is the latest to show its true colors.I often look to LA Times for the facts and bringing stories to the forefront that need to be told.A story they would have loved to stay hidden is that of the pay inequity of Latinx foodcritic Patricia Escárcega.
What a pleasure it was for me to sit down with my friend Phyllis Newhouse, entrepreneur, retired military senior officer, mentor and founder and CEO of Xtreme Solutions, Inc., a firm that offers a wide range of IT expertise and provides industry leading, state-of-the-art information technology and cybersecurity services and solutions.
Recentlyfeatured in the SacramentoBusinessJournal, Jill Osur, aco-founder and director of the winery group GoldLine Brands and host ofChill With Jill series, is challenging the odds by starting a digitally based, female-featured wine brand.
Surrounded by lush vineyards and swirling dragonflies, Chill With Jill host, Jill Osur, sat down with Mona Pasquil over a bottle of Teneral Cellars Untamed Red Blend to talk about gratitude and women in politics.
Two things happened to change my idea about the rest of my life: First, I worked at a restaurant run by wine lovers who made sure we tasted wines every week. On Saturday mornings we sat through wine classes that detailed winemaking practices and growing regions around the world. I was smitten.
The birth of Teneral Cellars came as our country struggled with the COVID-19 pandemic, and so many challenging social and environmental issues. I looked inward as a leader in the wine industry, how I could use wine, passion and leadership to build an all-digital community that speaks to like-minded women by connecting them through wine and delivering impact to causes and issues relevant to our time.
