Woman Who Wows: Amy Cosper


Amy Cosper is the Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine. She has been described as fun,  quirky, surprising and uber-authentic.  Always impressively authentic. And ballsy.  Whether she’s riding a four-wheeler, her  new Ducati, or perhaps a horse, I have a feeling this girl’s ALWAYS in control.  And always ready to go a BIT further than the day before.  Since she took over as the Editor-in-Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, the Editor’s Note has — consistently — been one of my favorite parts of the magazine.  This Woman Who WOWs is inspiring — and equipping — entrepreneurs all over the world and is definitely one to watch! Reach out to her on twitter at @EntMagazineAmy.
