Panel and Moderator speaking about Stress Management on July 14, 2018: Jane Hervey, Ruby Ku, Stephanie Scherzer, Maria Oliveira
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.
July’s “work: a pop-up conference for creatives and entrepreneurs” at The University of Texas’ Rowling Hall offered many great chances to learn and connect. Below is just a smattering of some of the take-aways from the day:
- 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.
