As reported on, on March 9, 2011, women and business leaders from all over our community gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of outstanding women business owners in our region. Hosted by the Louisville Chapter of NAWBO, the 17th Annual EPIC Awards Dinner & Silent Auction, honoring the Woman Business Owner of The Year and Women of Distinction, brought together a diverse audience from the business community, representing sole proprietorships to large corporations with hundreds of employees.

The event’s message, ‘Power Your Dream,’ rings especially true when you consider that the estimated 93,233 privately held, majority women-owned firms in Kentucky generate $9.3 billion in sales and employ 71,566 people. It is by celebrating the economic development successes of women-owned businesses that our entire city succeeds.

We here at Julie Pogue Properties are thrilled to announce that Julie was named a 2011 NAWBO Woman of Distinction. It’s a huge honor, and we are proud as always of our fearless leader!
