December 15, 2008.
A few months ago, I received a call from a woman with agoraphobia. Her fear of being in public places meant that she couldn’t even do her own grocery shopping. She told me that she forced herself to go out regularly to pick up a copy of Women’s Post. There was something about the way our columnists wrote about the world from their own intimate perspective that she absorbed. The more of our publication she read, the more she realized how sick she was and needed help. The inspiration she found in our pages made her find help and she was calling me to let me know that she had just landed her first job in over five years. She told me that she owed her life to the writers at Women’s Post. That is why I publish Women’s Post, and that is why I am asking for your support.
Our goal is to inspire women to be all they can be. Instead of simply offering vacuous beauty advice, or fashion focused on runway clothing designed for tarts with attitude, our aim is to provide information and ideas to women who want to do more, women who want to lead, create, and build the world around them. Our fashion is focused on useful styles for businesswomen who want to be treated seriously. Our business, finance, and news commentary is designed to help women navigate through the sea of information bombarding them daily. We have become a trusted source of information, ideas, and recommendations for Canadian women and I do hope you will help us to continue bringing this resource to women across Canada.
Unlike the frivolous fashion magazines that depend on advertising, Women’s Post relies heavily on the support of our subscribers. I do hope you will help me continue to build the only magazine in Canada designed for businesswomen.
If there is a woman in your life who like to explore the world around them, I hope you might consider giving a subscription to Women’s Post during this holiday season. Not only will it supply her with information, it will serve to connect her to a larger community of women leaders doing inspiring things in Canada.
