33 Intriguing Women on Twitter (You Need to Follow)

There's an old saying that "those who cherish a beautiful vision, a lofty ideal in their hearts, will one day realize it." Below are 33 women whose lives personify that statement. They're mentors, industry leaders, motivational speakers, business visionaries, dream merchants, wordsmiths, & serious go-getters. They create opportunities for themselves and others, and they stand as beautiful examples of what is possible, and certainly probable, when you explore the depth and scope of your talents and skills.

There was such a great reception to my blogpost last month entitled 10 Intriguing Women on Twitter (You Need to Follow) that people send me emails and direct messages everyday urging me to profile this woman and that woman. It's been nothing short of overwhelming. So taking names completely from those Twitter-related emails, I came up with the list below. It's in no particular order of significance or accomplishment. It’s simply an eclectic mix of 33 intriguing women on Twitter who rock! I am moved by their substance and enjoy their tweets, and when you follow them, you will too.

  1. Great compilation of amazing women. Great job!

  2. Sounds like the kind of women that I love to follow. I never tire of learning and being inspired by others

  3. Okay I am completely honored and blushing to be part of your top women. You have so many super stars in there. Great taste my friend. Much love and gratitude to you for thinking of me. You are an angel.

  4. this is so great. thank you for putting a list like this together. Really encouraging and inspiring.

  5. This is a great list. I've seen so many of them on Twitter. I especially like Tanya Acker. I believe that was her on CNN today. This is a something I'll be emailing to my friends. Thanks.

  6. This is a another great list you put together sir. I especially like the fact that you didn't just profile tweeters who have a lot of followers. You see these so-called lists where ALL of the people have 20,000, 30,000, 40,000 and above. That's so whack in my opinion.

    Another thing I like is the fact that you never use words like "The Top Ten...", "The Best...", "The Greatest...", etc. You simply profile people. I like that. Keep up the great work.

  7. A great list. Very inspiring stories behind the faces and names of these women. Wow.

  8. Hey 2morrowknight, I know I should just concentrate on the impressive accomplishments of the women above. But I just want to say thanks for profiling some real cuties! Damn!

  9. Absolutely great list. A great cross-section of women in different fields. Hot! Inspiring!

  10. Highly successful people know the key to their success is to find a mentor that is successful in the area of expertice and then learn through their programs. This helps to reduce your learning curve and propels you to become successful very quickly.

  11. great post..i know montanna and i bet she is flipping!

  12. This is a hot list! I do believe I might have 33 new girl crushes.

  13. Hi 2morrowknight! I love your lists. You obviously put great time and effort into your lists.

    I sincerely hope ALL of the women have sent you a message or email saying thank you. Anyone who doesn't do it, should be taken off the list.

    Please keep doing what you're doing. I love it.

  14. 2morrowknight, you've outdone yourself this time. A great list of women to follow. Just great.
