Vickie Milazzo Institute Ranks 3rd Among “Top 25 Woman-Owned Businesses”
HOUSTON – August 24, 2007 – Vickie L. Milazzo Institute ranked 3rd among Houston’s “Top 25 Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned Businesses” based on total revenue. The Houston Business Journal bestowed this prestigious award on founder and president Vickie L. Milazzo, RN, MSN, JD.
In addition to the “Top 25” recognition, Milazzo also ranked in 19th place among the “Top 50 Fastest-Growing Woman-Owned Businesses.” Both of these rankings are based on 100% woman-owned firms in Houston that are privately held.
Both recognitions are momentous in the nation’s fourth largest city since there are more than 185,000 privately held, woman-owned firms in Houston. “This year, Houston’s top woman business owners have offered us truthful and valuable insight into the challenges and rewards of running their own companies. Many discovered the path to success through trial and error, innovative leadership or by following good, sound advice,” said John C. Beddow, publisher of Houston Business Journal.
Founded in 1982 in Milazzo’s one-bedroom condo with a staff of one, Vickie Milazzo Institute now occupies 8,400 square feet of office space with an extensive support staff.
“No problem that entrepreneurs encounter in business hasn’t already been solved by someone else,” said Milazzo. “That advice motivated me to seek out and learn from people more successful than me. It also instilled confidence in me to remember that if somebody else can do it, I can too.”
“The more I learn about leadership, the more I grow, the more my company grows and the more I enjoy my business,” she said. “This honor confirms my passion and the dedication of my staff for what we do.”
Vickie Milazzo Institute is the oldest and largest legal nurse consulting education company in the U.S., and has trained over 14,000 RNs to be Certified Legal Nurse Consultants. Milazzo is the author of the Wall Street Journal Bestseller Inside Every Woman: Using the 10 Strengths You Didn’t Know You Had to Get the Career and Life You Want Now (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., now in its seventh printing and being published in five additional languages).
