“Somebody is going to call you the ‘B’ word,” says Maribeth Kuzmeski, “that’s just the way it is. You’ve got to be okay with that and move on, because it is not a majority of people, it’s just a few.”

All too often women are afraid of standing out because we are so relationship focused we can easily fear the jealousy or judgment of others. But to succeed in business requires a resilience and confidence to shake all that off, much like men do.

Maribeth is used to being the proverbial “only woman in the room” in her role as President of Red Zone Marketing, primarily serving the financial services industry.

So she decided to roll up her sleeves, “give forward” and create a foundation to get women in finance and entrepreneurship the female role models and mentors they need to succeed.

In addition to the Red Zone Foundation to lift up women and provide much needed mentoring and female role models, Maribeth also started a podcast, the Female Insight Zone, heard on C-Suite Radio by more than 1,500,000 C-Level executives. There, like WINGS, she features women who have made an indelible mark in business and the path they took to soar.

Maribeth, also a best selling author of 7 books including The Connectors and a regular media contributor on Fox News, CNBC, New York Times and Wall St Journal, shares her tips on resilience, confidence and how to command a room.
