A woman in my community received an MBA from the same school that I attended. She graduated with distinction thirty years before me, one of only six women in her class. (My business school class was 25% women.) She has had a successful career and has made a point of advising younger women to read the front page of the Wall Street Journal every day. It is important to keep up with national and world events, but also to be informed about the most important business and financial news of the day.
