Sure, we’ll be watching the Oscars this weekend. It’s going to be a fun night filled with great dresses, meaningful speeches, and dreams coming true. But if we had our way, there would be a second kind of Oscars – the “Career Girl” Oscars celebrating the best of women in business, whose names aren’t as big as those of silver screen celebrities, but who are just as deserving of praise. And in 2013, the nominees are…
