Original Article for CEO Monday here
Here’s the truth about women in DC. They kind of hate the spotlight. These multi-tasking queens are so busy making things happen and changing the world, that they don’t give themselves credit. As you know, bold and gutsy women have always motivated me to continue ZOPHIA’s mission. So, CEO MONDAY makes sure these ladies are seen! Today’s spotlight is on Rachel Hallinan, the gorgeous blogger behind District of Style. As a stylish and strong advocate for local charities, she definitely deserves this week’s praise.
