“The fastest-spreading language in human history, English is spoken at a useful level by some 1.75 billion people worldwide—that’s one in every four of us.” (Harvard Business Review).
Happy International Women's Day!
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women (ref. here). Over the last few years at EssayJack, we've been lucky enough to have worked alongside some very inspirational women and want to take a moment to recognize these STRONG ladies for all that they do!
The Businesswoman of The Year Awards have recognized the accomplishments of outstanding women in the National Capital Region since 1983 andthis year, our CEO and co-founder, Dr. Lindy Ledohowski, has been named as a finalist in the Emerging Entrepreneur category. Please join us in congratulating Lindy on this feat. She has written about her experiences moving from being a tenure track English professor to being an EdTech start up CEO (here and here and here among other places), and her story about leaping successfully from the academic track to the entrepreneurial one is a narrative we wish more people knew. As a strong womanin business and leader to our team, we are just so very proud that the BYAs have sat up and taken notice of her accomplishments.
Our happily married co-founders, Dr Lindy Ledohowski and Dr Rueban Balasubramaniam, recently sat down with Jeff Sandhu from BFM Radio for a captivating interview about EssayJack. After the interview Jeff said "it was definitely among my top 5 most memorable interviews in the 8 years of radio journalism."
Everyone likes to hear entrepreneurial stories, what the journey is like, and how one goes from having an idea to bringing it to market. This podcast interview was lively, passionate, and funny. The interviewer and our two co-founders chatted and laughed together, and the time flew by. Listen to it for yourself and see if it holds your attention from start to finish!
