“Our first publication was “Ellicott City and Beyond,” says Beth Ditman, co-president with Dorothy Doub of Columbia-based Custom Media Options, publisher of “Her Mind.” “In it, we featured four women entrepreneurs. We received such positive feedback that we knew there was an untapped niche in our own back yard.”
Since then, “Her Mind” has continued filling that niche with stories trumpeting the region’s amazing women, from glass-ceiling-shattering CEOs and financiers to artists, philanthropists and athletes. The magazine’s enduring success has left Ditman and Doub both happy and humbled.
“Even after five years, we are continually shocked by the sheer number of daily compliments we receive,” Doub says. “It motivates us to do better and keep on going.”
