Country Living Magazine sponsored an event for Women Entrepreneurs at the Navy Pier in Chicago on Saturday, May 30th, 2009. JAVA & Co.'s specialty coffee infused syrup was accepted to 'Pitch our Product' to a panel of judges for a possible future magazine feature. I was surrounded by creative, talented women of all ages. It was inspiring.
An informative conference with guest speakers followed the Pitch time and took place all afternoon with a wine reception to finish the event. I spoke to many wonderful, talented individuals - some who have a dream and others who had a dream and are now making it happen. It was rewarding to share information, successess, business tips and related stories. There should be many more events like this one!
Thank you to the team at Country Living. Everyone on your staff was friendly and encouraging. And thank you to all who took the time to share their inspirational journey!
Here's to carving out your own path in business!
