Marsha Bailey, founder and CEO of Women's Economic Ventures, was recently appointed to the National Women's Business Council.

NWBC is an independent source of advice and counsel to the president, Congress and the U.S Small Business Administration on issues of importance to women business owners. It is composed of 15 members who are appointed to three-year terms.

"The council is the government's only independent voice for women entrepreneurs," Bailey said. "NWBC conducts research on issues important to women business owners and their organizations. They then communicate these finding to expand and improve opportunities for women business owners."

Bailey has been developing educational programs and services for women since 1983 and is the primary author of WEV's self-employment training curriculum, From Vision to Venture.

She has a master's degree in communication from UC Santa Barbara and a bachelor of arts degree from Michigan State University in fine art and sociology.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
