Stiletto Woman in Business: Award Finalist!

Me Ra Koh

I’ve been catching up on holiday emails, and I found one that took me by total surprise!  Turns out I was nominated for the Stiletto Woman in Business Awards.

Out of 300 nominations, I’m a Finalist for THREE different categories;

Inspirational Entrepreneur of the Year

Artistic Entrepreneur of the Year

Photography Business of the Year!

Wow, wow, and wow!

I’m a bit speechless!  Seriously speechless!

Thank you so much to the people who nominated me, I feel completely honored and wow…speechless!  If you feel comfortable letting me know who you are, I’d love to send you a personal note of thanks.  What a wonderful surprise and gift to be nominated by you!

Thank you to the Stiletto Woman in Business!  Their community and magazine empower women in business leadership, and seriously, that is an incredible…beautiful committment that I can’t say enough about.

Congrats also to Keri Doolittle, a fellow SONY shooter, who was also nominated!  (Go Keri!)

It looks like they are doing a special conference for women.  We’ve been invited to come for the awards ceremony, and I’m so sad that our calendar is already booked for those dates.  But if you are in the Atlanta, Georgia area, it looks like a great day of women being inspired!

I know I said it already, but wow.  I’m so moved by this news.  Again, thank you so much.

  14. Me Ra, what a wonderful woman you are! We were beyond excited to receive your nomination. I personally visit every woman’s site and learn of her vision. When I landed here I was inspired! Mostly because you’re not just reaching women through photography, instead you’re connecting in so many ways.

    It’s a privilege to have you amongst our group of amazing finalists! And, if I’m ever in your neck of the woods, I will be participating in a workshop for sure!

    Thanks much!
