For too long women have been forced to figure out how to survive on their own. I wrote my book, SKIRTS in the Boardroom to equip women with the tools necessary to chart their own course. S.K.I.R.T.S. is actually an acronym that represents the characteristics that today’s woman must have to thrive in the boardroom, which ultimately represents any place of power that is male-dominated---a place where decisions are made and where you have a chance to show what you're made of. While it may change at different stages of your life, the boardroom is your playing field. It's also a place where the good ‘ole boys' network has, and continues to, flourish. It is time for the ladies to take their seats in the executive suite.   So how do you position yourself to thrive in and out of the boardroom?  Here seven savvy qualities that today’s S.K.I.R.T.S. must possess to go to the next level. (Pay attention, fellas---you can learn some fabulous tips, too!)---Marshawn Evans

Every entrepreneur wants to build a brand that inspires confidence, quality and reliability, knowing that customers’ belief in your product or service translates into revenue. In short, people put their money where their trust is. But trust can be a fickle thing. It can be difficult to earn and even then, requires constant maintenance. And if that trust is shattered, it can mean the end of an enterprise. 	In his book, The Trust Edge: How Top Leaders Gain Faster Results, Deeper Relationships, and a Stronger Bottom Line, author and business strategist Dave Horsager discusses the correlation between trust and profits. “I think it's the key bottom line indicator even though someone might think at first glance it's a soft skill,” he asserts. “I prove out how it really does affect the bottom line and of course it affects impact and everything else.” He also offers what he refers to as the “8 pillars of trust.” —Alan Hughes
