“It takes a village to raise a child,” so the ancient African proverb goes. Truly, in our tight-knit Keys community, we know the power of having a strong network of people. The flip side of that coin is the many times we are called upon to act solo, whether it’s at work or at home, and often both, especially for women. Of the 11 million single-parent families in the U.S., 80% are headed by single moms. Women are also becoming more independent in the professional arena, with the number of female entrepreneurs in the U.S. increasing by 30% since 2017. We looked to women who embody this kind of tough independent spirit in our community to offer advice and wisdom on being “one of a kind.” From the stage, store and shore, we applaud these “leading ladies.”
