“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” – Zig Ziglar
By 2009, her business, Thirty-One Gifts, posted impressive revenues of $38 million. By 2013, that figure looked pretty paltry.
That year, revenues for her company, a direct seller of purses and accessories, totaled $760 million.
No word in the official announcement about just how Monroe did it, but her business joins a group that, combined, generated $4.9 billion in revenues in 2013 and employ 22,000 people.
“The companies that made it onto our list this year reflect the continued resourcefulness of women-led businesses,” Marsha Firestone, president and founder of WPO, said in a statement. “We saw production soaring, with an average revenue growth of 203 percent from 2009 to 2013.
Firestone also noted that the statistics from the 2014 report show that women are making significant strides in industries traditionally dominated by men, such as information technology and transportation.
“The growth of these women-led companies is particularly impressive as the world economic recovery struggles to gain traction,” she said. “Privately held U.S. companies on average ended 2013 with annual sales growth of 5.4 percent, the slowest rate of sales growth since 2009.”
Businesses have to apply to be considered for the ranking. They also have to be privately held and have posted annual revenues of at least $500,000 by the end of 2008.
From those applicants, WPO selected the 50 fastest growing businesses — a group in which average revenues grew from $32.6 million in 2009 to $98.8 million in 2013. The average number of projected 2014 employees was 657.
Coming in right behind Thirty-One Gifts on the listing was Strategic Communications, a voice, data and video solutions company based in Louisville, and WDS Inc., a national warehousing and distribution company in Lake Wylie, S.C.
