Yahoo! Shine is running a wonderful Women Who Shine Contest, which aims to give recognition to women "who are blazing new trails, changing lives, and doing extraordinary things every day." As soon as I learned about the contest, I decided that Amy is the perfect candidate for it. Here's why I nominated her as a woman entrepreneur who shines:
"Amy shines as an extraordinary mom entrepreneur, champion of creative social media marketing and advocate for social good. As the founder of Resourceful Mommy Media, LLC, Amy invented the very first Twitter Party, also known as Sitewarming™ Parties, which has quickly grown into the most popular platform for new sites and trusted brands to share their voice with the Twitter audience.
Another great creation of Amy's is the Global Influence Network, which allows public relations agencies, brands and organizations to work directly with Amy and her team to develop valuable contents for her network of over 1800 social media savvy bloggers to share with their readers, Facebook friends, and Twitter followers. Having been an active part of various public service and socially responsible campaigns and events, Global Influence Network bloggers continue to lead the online charge in blogging for a cause and stand ready to write about the issues that touch their lives.
Amy and Resourceful Mommy Media have won wide acclaims and been featured in the press and around the Web, including ABC News, The New Yorks Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNET, The Digital Mom Handbook, to name just a few. In 2008, Amy was named by the Working Mother magazine as the Most Powerful Women in Social Media (Ranked #3). The RM Media won third place in the Shorty Awards for Advertising. Amy is currently writing Raising Digital Families For Dummies."
Don't you agree that Amy is amazing?! Whether or not your know her personally, I would love you to vote for Amy and help her win the Grand Prize of $10,000!
