Some say your life’s purpose something you’d do for free. If that were true, why do so many feel burned out by purpose-driven work? Plus consider that the front-lines of these professions (nonprofits, NGOs, social impact, human services, advocacy…) are highly populated by women. Let’s talk about this! A meet-up is bring proposed for SXSW 2020 to do just that.
The proposed meet-up is titled Women changemakers – let’s talk self-care. And we need you, the public, to show your support for this idea during the community voting period (Aug. 5 – Aug. 23, 2019). Please go to panelpicker.sxsw.com , log in and vote-up and comment on this proposal if you’d like to see it at the next SXSW. Here is a video about it:

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.

Who wants to talk about work on a Saturday? When you gather 300 creatives and entrepreneurs at a conference presented by #bossbabesATX and powered by the Texas MSTC and Texas MBA Programs, it turns out to be a great way to spend a weekend.
If you don’t set a tempo for yourself, then other people set it for you.
Invest in yourself.
Manage your flow of energy.
Do not mix your business finances with your personal finances.
True teams come together to get a task done.
Don’t worry if you missed the Summer event, there will be another inspiring edition in February 2019 presented by #bossbabesATX, a nonprofit that amplifies and connects women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers.
According to a 2017 LinkedIn survey, almost 80 percent of professionals consider networking to be important to career success. But according to the same survey, nearly 40 percent find it hard to stay in touch with their network.
In light of those figures, it is always great when an event comes along that makes it easy to connect and network. PeopleSpring, presented by the nonprofit organization PeopleFund, provides just such an opportunity for women entrepreneurs.
PeopleSpring – Ladies Lunch & Learn, is an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other women entrepreneurs and get inspiration hearing from a panel of business leaders.
PeopleFund, an organization that creates economic opportunity and financial stability for underserved people, presents free PeopleSpring events all across Texas. The next one occurs in Austin on July 26th, 2018.
