"Must-Haves" for Chicks


The iPhone’s style and the power of its apps make “iPhone Chick” something you’ll feel proud to be called!

 The iPhone has an irresistible quality to it that creates an instant bond between users. Suddenly, you have something in common with the person next to you in that long line at the bank. Yet, it’s the state-of-the-art power it provides that makes it a must-have for us chicks. I used to think it was a bit trendy—and that opinion kept me on the wrong side of the iPhone equation for much too long. My skepticism cost me time and money in my personal life and as a business owner.
