Berkeley Women in Biz Meetup

Last Tuesday, June 4th, I hosted a meetup with local Bay Area women in business across diverse industries at our house in Berkeley. 

While living in community with housemates, mostly women, who are also business owners and consultants, in private practice, or dreaming of growing their next dream project, I was inspired to get everyone together with other women and friends in our community for a diy potluck-style mixer. As we were an intimate size, we had a chance to spotlight each person and share her/his/their skills and expertise to facilitate connections.

Thank you to everyone who joined us! Thanks to my housemates, folk singer-songwriter Green Huse and therapist Anna Musco, girlgeek April Hungerford-Filiczkowski, OM trainer Athena Fry, David McCalmon, and our friend, Eylon Caspi for your support.

Let me know if you have ideas for a future meetup. Perhaps, a cool, air-conditioned venue? Feel free to drop your comments below. xoxo
