Ask anyone who’s ever heard of GirlCreative and they can tell you, one of my passions is connecting people — primarily women — to the resources and other human beings they need to succeed and make their dreams a reality.  And nothing energizes me more than meeting and getting to know other fiery female entrepreneurs!  Recently I got to spend the day with some boss ladies around a table full of delicious food, talking about our vulnerabilities as business owners, celebrating our successes, and sharing tips on how to run a successful company when you’re doing every little thing for yourself!


EMPOWER: Pop-Up Workspace for Women Entrepreneurs was created by one fearless female entrepreneur I admire so much, Dana Cherie.  We first met when she needed head shots for her website, and she’s been a friend ever since!



EMPOWER for Women Entrepreneurs was hosted at beautiful Birchwood Cafe in Minneapolis, where our 5-hour long workspace flew by like 90 minutes at coffee with a good friend.


The encouragement was as nourishing as the award-winning lunch — when it came time to offer advice to one another, this group didn’t skip a beat.  It felt so good to talk about what’s really going on in my business, with other women who can completely relate.  I was so inspired by the honesty in this group!


All who attended left feeling empowered to focus on the needs of our businesses, and inspired to implement everything we had just learned from each other.  What could be better?

LIVE YOUR FAVORITE LIFE is Dana’s credo, and until this event I wasn’t sure what she meant.  After spending an afternoon in such good company, I think I get it.


To women helping women succeed!!
