(Newswire.net — May 2, 2013) Los Angeles, CA — President Barack Hussein Obama nominated long-time friend and ally, Penny Pritzker to become the nation’s secretary of commerce today. Ms. Pritzker is the heir to the Hyatt Hotel fortune and only the 3rd female in history to be nominated to this cabinet level position of female leadership.

If accepted, Pritzker will follow in the footsteps of interm Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank. Blank was previously the Acting Secretary from July 2011 until October 2011.

“It’s a known fact that women have a better history of balancing budgets better than men,” quipped Tracey Trottenberg, founder of Amazing Women International. “The world is starving for Female Leadership. When we, as women, hold ourselves back, we hold everyone back. And there are so many ways we do this. Yet when we allow ourselves to shine, be powerful, joyful, strong and soft, everyone around us grows. The nomination of Pritzker is a good one, not just because she is a woman, but because she is a powerful, economically sound leader and emodies female leadership at the highest level.”

Female leadership has been a challenge in all cultures, specifically economic ones. In many households across the country and around the world, the woman is in charge of the budget, expenses while the man earns the income. As the economy has shifted dramatically since WWII and in our recent recession, it has become even more important for women to take the leadership role in both earning and spending money.

Trottenberg doesn’t just talk the talk, she teaches female leadership as a matter of course.  As the founder and CEO of Amazing Women International, her focus is on total empowerment for women. She is hosting a 3 day event in Los Angeles May 16-19. Visit http://www.traceytrottenberg.com/ohu/ for details.

As a speaker, trainer, facilitator and coach, Tracey has delivered her message from international boardrooms to industry and main stages such as Internet World, Digital Hollywood, CDMA, CHA and more. As a Master Trainer at Peak Poten­tials “Train the Trainer II” and a Speaker at The WIN’s “Be the Change” and a multitude of other events, Tracey has shared the stage with such legends as Les Brown, Lisa Nichols, Marianne Williamson and Loral Langemeier.
