Great Saleswomen: A Historical Timeline (1717-Present) [Infographic]

Today we present a co-branded infographic from Nimble and Postwire. We thought it was time the great saleswomen of history got a place in the sun. Here is a look at just a few of the remarkable women who have inspired and empowered so many. Often unsung during their lifetimes, these women have always known the value of “social selling,” as their stories prove. The modern iconic saleswomen (e.g., Anneke Seley) stands on the shoulders of giants and to her and all the others who carry the banner (I’m talking to you, SALES Shebang®), we raise a glass.

Please check the end of this post for lots more resources about and for women in sales!
