Our goal with Girl Boss Life Co is to create a community where female entrepreneurs can find support, collaboration and education. We want each member and person our community touches to feel inspired, connected and uplifted.
So for 2020, we’ve mapped out specific themes to help us develop strong brands and smart business habits. These themes will lay the groundwork for our mixers, educational events and book club. We started the year with an essential topic: defining our why and connecting with the right kind of audience.
For our first Book Club meeting, we read Simon Sinek’s Find Your Why. If you’re not familiar with this book, it’s an excellent tool to help you give your business (and your life!) specific purpose and direction. Knowing your why helps you make conscientious and purposeful decisions so you can stay on your path and build a business and life that is meaningful and rewarding.
Our day began with getting to know one another, updating our business headshots and working on creating a mood board for our brands, pulling images, swatches of colors, fabrics, even type treatments that brought our brand to life on paper.
We are thrilled with how the day came together, and it wouldn’t have been possible without every single person who participated, whether as a speaker, sponsor or attendee. We want to send out a big thank you to our speakers and session leaders for sharing their knowledge and hearts with us. Thank you also to our sponsors for helping make this amazing day happen: CAVU Coffee, EatWell, The Marmalade Lily, Emma McMahan Photography, Wonderwell Workshops, and Sweet Viola Designs—we couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you to all of the attendees who came from all over the tri-state: your enthusiasm and encouragement made it such a special day!
If you have ideas or feedback on session topics, workshops, etc, for a future retreat, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so exited because our favorite pop up event of the year is happening next weekend! Our annual Holiday Pop Up is such a fun event to sip, shop, and celebrate the season all while supporting local women owned businesses. Last year's Holiday event was such a success and so much fun and we can't wait for this years'! Check out our top 10 reasons to celebrate the season with us!
1. GIRL BOSSES
What makes our event unique is that ALL vendors are women owned ground up businesses. These women work hard year round, whether it be at their brick + mortar stores, selling on Etsy, or running their websites and workshops. They all have incredible stories of why they launched their own businesses and we love to use the Holiday Pop Up to celebrate them and all they do!
One thing that we do pride ourselves on is the atmosphere of our Pop Up events! All of the vendors, attendees, and volunteers are among some of the most cheerful and kind people we've met! We love this about our events and know you will too! Our Pop Ups are smaller than your average "craft market or expo" but that's how we like it! We may not have as many vendors as other shows, but we make up for that in quality of vendors, their dispositions, and the Holiday Cheer that can be felt throughout the event!
