On the evening of December 17th, I had the pleasure of being in the company of the delightful members of the Santa Barbara Female Entrepreneurs at the beautiful Epiphany restaurant.
The evening began at 5pm and as I walked through the door, I immediately recognized a familiar face...the face of Lisa Braithwaite. Lisa and I connected through MySpace and Twitter and she informed me of the group and its events and introduced me to the group's coordinator, Jennifer Bragg.
This was my first meeting with the group. Business cards were exchanged and connections were made. The bevy of female entreprenueurs included a realtor, a public speaking coach, a web & graphics designer, an image and design consultant, a PR specialist, & a skin therapist just to name a few.
During the course of the evening, I had very insightful conversations which included topics from business strategies on how to approach bios and company fact sheets, cultural business differences, social networking and advertising to a very in-depth conversation of dermis and epidermis. It's amazing how one conversation leads to another but I definitely learned information that I will remember for a lifetime.
At the end of the evening, our goodbyes were expressed with hugs because as one woman so warmly stated, "that's what we women do. "
The Santa Barbara Female Entrepreneurs group posts their events on Facebook.
