Kimberly Gyuran-Miles won the Women of Distinction Award for Entrepreneur of the Year.  Kimberly is President of The Payroll Company with over 25 years of management experience with over 5000 clients nationwide. She was the 2011 Past President of NAWBO. Boss Lady is the new Reality T.V. Show that will debut in the fall and is the next adventure in her interesting wonderful life. Upon meeting her you will see the twinkle in her eyes, see a huge smile, get a firm hug, hear a sincere greeting and you will instantly know that you are meeting someone special, but you won’t know why, at the moment but you will know later on. That is how I felt when I first met Kimberly, but as I got to know her, I knew why. Kimberly is a special lady and behind every good woman is her man.
