    Here's a recap of our fun afternoon!

    I had a marvelous time yesterday. It was delightful to interact and network with the fascinating, motivated, friendly women who attended. Everyone was so nice, eager to do business, fun, and great to talk with - and had great insights for each other. One of the best quotes (paraphrased) of the night came from author/women's historian Barbara Joan Zeitz: "Always listen to advice, but don't take it. Hear the advice, but then decide for yourself what you want to do, and when to do it." Can't wait until the next event!

    I won't make it, I so wanted to come and meet all, and hear the roundtable on health care reform!

      It was very informative. Contact co-founder Karen McCormack directly for a one-on-one session. She is a wealth of information.

    I enjoyed meeting so many energetic and wise women, learning about their businesses and being educated on healthcare during the one roundtable I got to attend. It was fun creating little people and flowers with everyone!
    We had ample opportunity to converse with each other and get to know each other better, and I appreciate the depth and wisdom of the comments made and stories told.
    I look forward to seeing everyone again at upcoming events and am so grateful to be part of such a vibrant and supportive community of women entrepreneurs. Here's to sisterhood!
