Welcome to Layers of a Woman blog with Marita Kinney. As a young professional woman, I realized the need for a transparent blog which would encourage and strengthen the average woman…The Mom, The Wife, The Entrepreneur, The Single Woman, The Woman that wears more than one hat, and feels as if no one understands her daily struggle to become awesome.
