NJBIZ is celebrating the 10th anniversary of our Best 50 Women in Business event with a countdown to this year’s ceremony, to be held Monday, March 23, at The Palace at Somerset Park.For the nine business days leading up to the event, we’ll take a look back at a previous class, giving you a sneak peek at their answers to a class-only poll question and a class-only open-ended question based on topics involving women in the workplace.
Today, we’re featuring the Class of 2010.
But before we get to our answers (below) and a listing of the members of the Class of 2009 (even further down), we feel the need to remind you to get your tickets first.

Poll Question: Business life/home life … can you have it all?
Yes: 90 percent No: 10 percent
Open-ended question: What would you tell your 15-year-old self?
Joyce Bryant, director, Quality Dental School of Technology Inc.: Dream big and play hard. It’s okay to lose some time but shoot to win all the time.
Liz Miller, president, Summit Place Financial Advisors: There is no need to try to be someone other than who you are. You’re truest self can be most successful when you push yourself and take risks. Looking back you will laugh to think they ever looked scary.
Clare Wherley, CEO, Lassus Wherley & Associates P.C.: It’s going to turn out a whole lot better than you could ever imagine!
