Mary Foley retired at age 33 from America Online, where she started 10 years earlier as an $8 an hour customer service rep. During those years she learned that being bodacious was the only way to thrive as a woman in business.
Now a popular speaker and author, Mary has been providing career advice for ClevelandWomen.com visitors. Her popular Your Bodacious Career columns are available here.
