It is always great to be in the presence of women, especially smart women. The Texas Conference for Women has so much to see, hear and do that it is hard to decide which way to go. That is why you see me rushing almost running in the halls of the Austin Convention Center with my two bags, comfortable shoes, and phone. I was off to races.
I was able to snag two great interviews with two amazing women. My first interview came as a surprise. We just struck up a conversation, and I knew women would love to know about her company “iFundWomen”. Below is the interview that I did with the CEO and founder of “iFundWomen”, Ms. Karen Cahn. For women who are looking for ways to fund their startup, she is the person to know.
My second interview was with the Emmy award winner, Ms. Gaby Natale. She is the host of the Emmy award-winning show Super Latina, and now the author of the book El Circulo Virtuoso. Her story is one that a lot of people can identify with. She is inspirational. My interview with Gaby is below.
Both women are successful entrepreneurs who have found their passions and turned them into their careers. As each would tell you it has been a journey that has taken some unexpected turns. They epitomize the women that attended and participated in the Texas Conference for Women. This year there were 7,500 women in attendance from all over the United States.
Each of the women had their own schedule to adhere to and knew which sessions they wanted to attend and why. All of us were able to hear the three keynote speakers, Ms. Anita Hill, Ms. Sheryl Sandberg, and Ms. Viola Davis. Their presentations were informative and more. You can see some of Ms. Anita Hill’s talInstagramFacebook Page–thisisyourbestyear, Instagram–thisisyourbestyear and Twitter–@mariciajohns.
If you have never attended this conference, you should think about it for next year. There is something for everyone from, pitching your product to QVC, working on your Linkedin Page, coping with grief, fitness and much more.
This is one of the highlights of my year, seeing and hearing the speakers and meeting up with other bloggers, photographers, and other media again. Hope you will take advantage of this great gathering of women. Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.
