OneWorld CEO Peggy Olin grateful for Influential Business Women award

The South Florida Business Journal on Friday honored OneWorld Properties President and CEO Peggy Olin and 24 other remarkable women as 2019 Influential Business Women for their leadership and contributions to South Florida.

“I encourage each one of you to always give back to your community,” said Peggy, who was accompanied by her son and team members at the event at Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina in Fort Lauderdale.

“It makes such a big difference for all us to continue doing that.”

On March 29, The Friends of Birch State Park will recognize board member Peggy with the Birch Above and Beyond Award.

Peggy’s pearl of wisdom upon receiving the Influential Business Women award: live in a state of gratefulness.

“We forget every day how important it is to wake up and get dressed and show up to do something you love. We have the opportunity to do that every single day.

“It is the possibility of making a dream come true that makes life interesting.”
