    Hello BusinessWire,

    Since childhood days, I’ve always loved model railroad trains. I’ve felt inspired to start my professional internet presence in being my own boss online, after experience so much unfortunate adversity, in NOT being able to keep a job. As I looked into article marketing, affiliate marketing and online community building, I became inspired to “sprout” online, in unique content publishing, while being of service to others and helping them gain their online visibility as well. When I discovered that Mr. Buffet & I have a love for SEO article/press releases and trains, it inspired me to create a wonderful post:

    and give Mr. Buffet lots of acknowledgment and thanks for inspiring others to be inspiring entrepreneurs. Hopefully someday, I’ll be able to meet Mr. Buffet, and thank him for motivating me to become a web-CEO =)

    Thank you =)

    =)

    This “women’s wheel” series has been incredible and Cathy is no exception. The sheer boldness in writing Buffet a letter… her origins as a cab driver. As an aspiring CEO myself, I love hearing stories like this.

  3. Cathy, congratulations on all your success with Businesswire! Being a top female CEO is truly inspirational!
