What’s in a note? Not just words, checklists, or attachments. It’s people and passions, ideas and inspiration: these are the things that bring note-taking—and, by extension, Evernote—to life. Together, they make the difference between a chunk of information and a creative breakthrough.
With International Women’s Day coming up on March 8 (and Women’s History Month underway in the U.S., U.K., and Australia), we’d like to take a moment to revisit some of the dynamic entrepreneurs and artists who have shared their Evernote stories with us. These brilliant women continually find new ways to follow their passions, exceed their goals, and impact the lives of others. We’re proud to be a part of the way they work.

Bringing history to life with Amy Stewart
Writing historical novels often means making unexpected discoveries. Take Amy Stewart, for example, who stumbled across a gold mine of forgotten history when she found the odd headline “Girl Waits with Gun for Black Handers” in a 1914 issue of the New York Times. What followed was a fascinating research journey, managed in Evernote, that led to the bestselling novel Girl Waits with Gun.

Staying inspired with Krisstina Wise
As she built up the GoodLife Companies, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage, and a consulting firm helping real estate agents go paperless, Krisstina Wise learned first-hand the importance in believing in herself and her dreams. Along the way, she also developed a sense of personal mission that inspires her to do more. “Who I am and what I do impacts the lives of others and that allows me to live my best life possible,” she told us. “Squeeze the juice out of life and stay present.”
