50 Women In Business You MUST Follow on Twitter!

I love Twitter. No. I adore twitter. Actually I probably wouldn’t have a business without Twitter so when I hear people question “what does it have to do with me?” I have to say, if you’re in business, it has everything to do with you!

As a little background noise, I can tell you that I have made the most exciting connections, built up a supportive audience, had several requests for national and local PR opportunities, completed numerous sales, sought help for just about everything (I mean everything) and grown exponentially on a personal level throughout it all. So you see Twitter is where it’s at in business terms and if you’re not in it, you’re not making the most of the global information and connection and growth available to you.

To get you started on your quest for finding some top notch women in business to follow, look no further and know that right here is all you need to really whet your business palette. These are not necessarily the worlds ‘ high-fliers’ (although some really are) but just women like you and me doing their thing and doing it well. Their tweets are relevant, helpful and filled with interesting content to explore in their fields of expertise.

These are in no particular order whatsoever, each as valuable and important as the next!
