Peggy Brimhall, Paula Waggoner-Aguilar, Tim McDiarmid, and Elsa Fernandez are extraordinary forward-looking Texas entrepreneurs who embrace risk and welcome new challenges.  They have faced failures and rejections and have used those experiences to create new opportunities.  All of these women are change agents and powerful leaders.  All are determined to carve out a path for themselves and for the greater San Antonio community.  They dare to be different, to be pioneers and to traverse new ground.  And they are more than willing to take all of us along with them.
