Peninsula woman lauded as leader, small-business pioneer

Barbara Morrison says that as part of the ’60s generation, she knew she was destined to change the world.

“I didn’t know how, but somehow I wanted to leave the world a better place,” she says. “I had no career script — one thing just led to another until I found what I was looking for.”

Now the Tiburon resident, a former Belvedere mayor and a business pioneer who has built two thriving companies while advancing the financial security of Bay Area small businesses, has made her latest mark on history. In March, Morrison was inducted into the Marin Women’s Hall of Fame for her lifetime of leadership and advocacy of women and small business, an elite group of just 140 women since the program started in 1988.
