Being Boss NOLA Vacay 2018

Screen Shot 2018-04-02 at 5.03.31 PM.png
Seriously CANNOT WAIT!!!!

Seriously CANNOT WAIT!!!!

WHO IT’S FOR

WANTED: Small business owners who loooove to have a good time (which definitely sometimes involves talking endlessly about business over cappuccinos and beignets). #BeingBossNOLA is the right fit for the creative entrepreneur who works hard and is ready to play hard. Bonus points if you can get down with the woo, don’t mind humidity, and would gladly cram into a tiny room in the back of a dive bar with your pals for the tastiest po’boy of your life.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Leave the spreadsheets, bring the tarot deck (but we will provide a notebook + pen). We take vacationing seriously, and by that we mean that we don’t take it seriously at all. #BeingBossNOLA is about being together and having fun. You’ll cheers at a cocktail party, laugh at a live podcast recording, learn at a masterclass, swap French Quarter stories over a community meal, and have plenty of free time in-between to enjoy all that New Orleans has to offer.

PowHERful: A Women's Networking Brunch

PowHERful.jpg

So let's face it, everytime I've been to a networking event, it's been the "in crowd" full of influencers, and then the people like me who want to make a difference and a change, but don't want a title around it with a negative connotation. I thought of this idea to have a brunch filled with doctors, lawyers, tax accountants, coders, IT personel, entrepreneurs, marketers, sales specialists, who truly are the true bad ass influencers and movers and shakers to me, and here we are!

The PowerHERFUL brunch will be a networking opportunity to meet amazing women like you and to grow a fundamental opportunity to discuss about successes, losses, what's holding you back from the next move, and finding that next puzzle piece to excelling in your dreams! No panel discussion, just raw conversations talking about real things.

Calling all Creatives! End of Summer Social

CALLING ALL CREATIVES.jpg

Greetings Creatives!

Labor day has come and gone as summer grows more fleeting. To celebrate our rapidly growing group and in partnership with our friends at Distinctly Creative (https://www.meetup.com/distinctly_creative/) and Graphic Design DC (https://www.meetup.com/Washington-GraphicDesign-Meetup/), we are hosting an all hands on deck social to meet as many of our collective creative community as possible while the weather’s still southernish.

Over the past few months, since Kasey and I took over, our group has more than doubled in size (becoming one of fastest growing creative groups on Meetup), we’ve hosted a few fun events and got to meet a lot of you fine folks. But as we celebrate our growth, we are reminded that this group IS and ALWAYS will be about fellowship and community and not numbers. We highly value engagement and participation from our members to encourage a creative community that’s diverse, inclusive, social and exists beyond the confines of the digital world.

So we humbly request that ALL ACTIVE AND NEW MEMBERS that are available Thursday, September 28th, join us for our last social event of the summer to celebrate, network and socialize.

We’ve reserved the entire private outdoor patio at Spaces NoMa for our event so feel free bring friends, drinks, and yourselves as we say farewell to summer in style (rain or shine). We will provide drinks and food/snacks, further details and directions below:

• Thursday, September 28th

• 6:30pm - 10pm

• Spaces NoMa (Uline Arena) 1140 3rd St NE, 2nd Floor, Washington, DC 20002

Please RSVP on Meetup and if your plans change and you can’t join us, no worries, but please update your RSVP so we can factor that into planning. For any questions or additional information, please message us anytime.

We look forward to seeing you all there!
