The Female Mind at Work

South Carolina Business Review logo

Our next guest says that women don’t think, manage, reason, negotiate, or make decisions like men do.  However, she adds that women don’t do these things better than men, they simply do them differently.  Which is why she decided to start a new magazine and online resource for women in the business community.

Mike Switzer interviews Anna Gelbman Edmonds, publisher of the F-Suite in Columbia, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
