GOP Presidential contender Carly Fiorina named to her team several Coloradans, one of which is prominent female entrepreneur, Heidi Ganahl, who just sold her enterprise Camp Bow Wow for an undisclosed sum thought to be in the tens of millions. Democrats wasted no time in denouncing the picks. In fact, one liberal blog had this to say about Fiorina’s line up: “Again, we’re not talking A-Listers.”
Liberals’ timing could not have been worse. As usual. Of course, there’s never a good time to try to tear down a successful female entrepreneur, is there? Ganahl recently participated in a TedX speech titled “The Art of the Comeback” talking about how she overcame adversity by giving back to others. What a jerk she is. (That’s sarcasm.) Here’s her speech. It’s worth watching.
In the speech, Ganahl talks about some of the adversity she faced including the death of her husband in his early 20s, being a single mom, losing almost a million dollars in a failed business, and infertility on her road to building a multi-million dollar business.
A quick Google search of Ganahl shows that she’s been a speaker at the University of Colorado’s Partners in Business Ethics Conference. She also sits on the Leeds School of Business Women’s Council. Further, her personal website notes the following achievements:
“Heidi’s company Camp Bow Wow was recently named to the Inc 500/5000 fastest growing company list, #88 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 105 Fastest-Growing Franchises in North America and the 26th fastest growing women owned business in the country! Heidi has been featured on America Online, Business Week Online, CNN Money and in Parenting, Entrepreneur, More Magazine, Success and Franchise Times. Heidi has inspired millions with her story on CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch.”
Given this background, it would seem that those complaining have high standards for folks who sit in their pajamas writing vitriol. She sounds pretty impressive to us.
Frankly, Ganahl could have cured cancer and Democrats would have complained. See, the real issue is that Democrats are so terrified of the fact that they are losing the narrative on women that they will tear down any woman who will not carry their water. Shame on Democrats for continuing to wage a war on women who don’t agree with them.
