I’ve seen #bossbabe on Twitter & Facebook for quite awhile now. I couldn’t find the term #bossguy, so I guess maybe I coined it. I searched for the definition of boss babe, but what I found is nowhere near what these women do. While the term “bossbabe” may have negative connotations, Boss Babes and Boss Guys are local entrepreneurs who are their own self-employed bosses whether in business for themselves or working for themselves while part of a larger corporation. These men and women live this quote by Sheldon Adelson: I’m not in business to make money for the other guy. I’m in business to make money for myself. I reached out to my Facebook friends and asked for my friends to submit their businesses. Here are several who volunteered to be included in this article.
