It details meeting running icon Kathrine Switzer and CEO of 261Fearless.org, Edith Zuschmann of Austria, along with 13 global and American women in New York City as the organization was launched in November 2015. You also run with Tracy through the iconic streets of Boston as she takes on her first marathon and learns important life lessons.

Amy Newmark the editor says: Whether you want to get moving, or keep moving, you need inspiration. Novice walkers and seasoned runners alike will find that inspiration, and so much more, in these stories written by those who know that the toughest step to take in any walk or run is the first.

Beginning an athletic pursuit like running or walking for fitness takes a good deal of motivation, determination, and inspiration, all of which can be found in these 101 real-life stories. Written by people who took that all-important, and elusive, first step, these stories will not only help readers get off the couch and get moving, but they'll inspire even the most seasoned of athletes to keep moving. Coauthored by the famous ultramarathoner Dean Karnazes, who brings his own advice to readers, as well as stories from some of the best-known runners in the world.

The cost of the book in stores ranges up to $14 with shipping and a signature, we are selling it for $20.

Women TIES is excited to return to the Albany & Saratoga Region with a special event after a year and a half absence due to President Tracy Higginbotham's medical sabbatical. We are bringing along our partner the Women's Business Center to join us in our return to enlighten your business horizons for 2020.

Social media has changed since it became a useful tool for women entrepreneurs. According to an article in Franchising.com, women and Millennials who own and operate small businesses are more likely to use social media in their businesses. The data reveals that among women-owned businesses, 74 percent use social media, compared to just 66 percent of men-owned businesses. "Women are generally better conversationalists than men," said Jeff Gibbard, chief social strategist at digital agency I'm From the Future. "They tend to be more expressive and more emotive. It's no surprise to me why more women business owners use social media." Women often communicate better than men, which translates to the online world, where they are more likely to use social media effectively."

At the Women TIES Greater Saratoga and Albany Event, "What's Working Today in Social Media" speaker Dale L'Ecuyer, "From Pain to Purpose" Facebook series, who has grown her business using live videos and more social media will explain ways it can assist other women entrepreneurs. Learn how Dale uses Facebook Live Video function regularly to grow followers and develop customers through know, like and trust phases, enlarges her potential customer reach and finds new collaborative partners. This is a perfect topic for any woman looking to do the same in 2020.

The event is sponsored by the New York Women's Business Center. Since July 2001 the WBC of NYS has successfully helped more than 10,500 women in the 29 county SBA Syracuse District Region. They are committed to expanding and evolving to meet the growing needs of women entrepreneurs in our region. Learn more at http://www.nywbc.org

Social media seems to be the big buzzword in today's social circles. We often hear how we should be active on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter or other social media outlets. Have you ever wondered whether social media really offers a benefit? Or is it just the latest trend? This presentation will look at social media, and address the following questions, "Is social media really beneficial as a means of communication?" and "Does it really change the way we do business?"

At the Women TIES Greater Binghamton Event, Jeannine Papelino, Founder of IntreXDesign & Associates based in Utica, New York, will discuss how social media is used, how it affects our decisions, and the impact social media has had on our lives. We'll also look at the pros and cons of social media in relation to other forms of marketing; addressing which type of marketing you should use and when.
