"It is a vehicle through which we can convey the message to other women worldwide; that you can achieve your goals, and that there is support available from other women by a click of the mouse. Through our shared stories, thoughts, and experiences, we hope to empower, educate, and develop each other while building a bridge through which we can network and make our businesses more sustainable." ~ Dr. Cottle
Simply Inspirational for Women in Business Journal™ addresses issues that concern women in business. It provides inspiration, information and resources for women entrepreneurs both locally and internationally. "Our work extends to a broader and more global access, because we are located online." Dr. Cottle hopes that through Simply Inspirational for Women in Business Journal™ she will touch women lives internationally with knowledge of professional development and business strategic planning and brainstorming so that they can see another option for living. It is also her hope that our leaders and policy makers will be guided by her voice to pass legislation that will meet the human rights of women and children who are victims of abuse, violence and poverty in every part of the world it happens and continues to happen. "How can we stop this scourge so that we do not have it recurring generations after generation? There is another legacy that can be left that will reflect hope and love'. This is Dr. Cottle's vision of the future of women regardless of race, social class, color, religion and geography.

The mission of Dr. Cottle's woman-focused organization empowers women entrepreneurs with the knowledge needed to build a sustainable business. She also hopes to encourage other women who are not yet there, but are thinking about it as a viable option - as a vocation, to ignite their spirit of entrepreneurship. "Our articles are intended to educate, empower, develop and motivate women to become leaders in their communities, "says Dr. Cheryl Cottle. "It is also my hope that other women - those who are blessed to have a better life will take up the mantle of hope and emancipation to see that conditions are changed and women living in poverty, violence and abuse, are taught how to emancipate themselves."
