Austin has an energetic small business community – and that energy was on display at the July 26th edition of PeopleSpring – Ladies, Lunch and Learn. This networking, leadership, and women’s luncheon event was presented by Texas’ PeopleFund – a nonprofit providing business loans and assistance to those with otherwise limited access to such resources – and was sponsored by Capital One.
The panel discussion was moderated by Kelly Jedele of Let Kelly and featured Tam Hawkins of The Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce, Chris Mascaro of Untamed & Creative, and Christine Vu of Raymond James & Associates.
The audience heard many great pearls of wisdom, including:
- No matter how much one has accomplished, there is always something left to learn;
- Do things that build your confidence;
- Model yourself on the best in the industry and then improve upon that;
- Seek out your tribe to uplift and support you;
- Enjoy the journey!
PeopleFund will be providing even more opportunities for learning and inspiration for small businesses in August with Innovation Week.
