In honor of Women’s History Month, we are sharing a ‘Power Plays’ Spotify playlist. Inspired by the legendary women that have paved the way for the now 10 million women business owners in the country, and the aspiring boss ladies of the future. We hope our #PowerPlays playlist serves as motivation for you innovators, inventors, industry disruptors and boss (ladies).
