A record number of women hold high-level positions in the Trump Administration, including Linda McMahon.
Linda is the former CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and co-founder of Women’s Leadership LIVE whose mission is to “empower a new wave of women entrepreneurs and leaders.” Last year, Linda was confirmed by the Senate to serve as the 25th Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA). The SBA is a government agency that works to provide support to the 30 million small businesses in the U.S.
Shortly thereafter, she embarked on the SBA Ignite Tour, a listening tour with SBA district offices across the country. So far, she has visited 31 states and has spoken to over 600 business owners to learn more about their needs and what the agency can do to help.
Linda has long promoted women’s entrepreneurship and is proud to lead an agency that works to advance women-owned businesses because she understands that women play a vital role in the economy. As she recently told Forbes:
I think there is an incredible wealth of women who have so much to offer. When you look at what women are doing — women are starting more businesses today. When you look at the totality of women’s businesses today, they are contributing about $1.7 trillion in sales. It is an amazing group of women doing these things.
Small Business Administrator Linda McMahon is a strong role model for women who aspire to change America for the better.
