Country Living Women Entrepreneurs!

The Country Living Women Entrepreneurs: A Celebration of Creativity was a wonderfully fun and informative event! Twenty-four members of Make Mine Pink were there to support and congratulate Joyce Lucas, founder of Make Mine Pink, as she received the recognition of being one of nine women selected as the 2008 Women Entrepreneurs!!

The program included several speakers:
Nancy Soriano, Editor-in-Chief of Country Living;
Anna Griffin, founder Anna Griffin, Inc;
Susan Mernit, Yahoo! Product Developer;
Heather Bailey,;
Beth Ferreira, Etsy, Inc;
Lena West, CEO of;
Ann Fox & Donna King, founders of Room Service Home;
Tamara Monosoff founder & CEO, Mom Inventors, Inc

Each one shared a message related to success in business filled with encouragement,
ideas to make the web work for your business and how to unleash your dream with boldness and creativity. They filled the entire room of 600 guests with hope and visions of being successful!! Quite inspiring! Then the nine WE's formed a panel to share their experiences.....nine interesting, accomplished women who took their dreams and made them into successful businesses......again, inspiring!

We were served box lunches and treated to a wine and cheese reception at the end of the day. There was a lot of networking, passing of business cards and lively conversation being shared by all. I was so happy that I'd had the opportunity to attend and came away filled with enthusiasm for my business, Grandma G's!! Changes will be me grow!!

I love that pink typewritter!
