This will be my second BullCon, can't wait to present on this topic!

A CAREER CONFERENCE FOR FEMINISTS WHO WANT TO MAKE THE WORLD AND THE WORKPLACE BETTER

Come to the 6th annual BullCon, where there is no reason you can't have a roundtable on sexism in the workplace followed by champagne. Literally none.

This is a conference for ambitious feminists who want to do their own thing, effectively and with verve.

For some of us, that means becoming CEO. For some of us, that means starting our own business. For most of us, it means doing really amazing work in whatever field we're in, while changing the world a little for the better. GetBullish and the Bullish Conference have been bringing it since 2013.

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.
