it’s about that time again! two weeks from today i’m hopping on a plane to the pacific northwest for the next round of d*s biz lady meetups! so far the portland rsvp’s are coming in like crazy but seattle needs a little bit of a boost- so i thought i’d re-post some of the details and explain the night again for anyone unfamiliar with our meetups.
on february 26th (portland) and february 28th (seattle), d*s will be coming to town to host an informal meetup where women running their own design-based businesses (or who want to start one) can come meet, mingle and receive free business advice from local experts. here’s the breakdown by location:
- location and time: tuesday, february 26th, 7-9pm at dwr portland
- speakers: amy ruppel (talking about her real life success story and the more day-to-day aspects of balancing life and your own company), d*s (i’ll be talking about PR and marketing for the independent designer), tilde owner debbe hamada (debbe will discuss wholesaling and all things retail), sarah chenven from mercy corps NW (discussing business concerns: taxes, contracts, etc.)
- location and time: thursday, february 28th, 7-9pm at dwr seattle
- speaking: fumi watanabe (talking about her real life success story and the more day-to-day aspects of balancing life and your own company), d*s (i’ll be talking about PR and marketing for the independent designer), velocity art and design owner john tusher (john will discuss wholesaling and all things retail), michelle hayden bomberger (discussing business concerns: legal, taxes, contracts, etc.)
there’s still plenty of room at both events so if you’d like to come by please just drop a line right here to rsvp. and just a reminder, if you’re able to- please bring a small snack (a box of cookies, etc) to the event- we do things pot luck style so no one gets stuck providing enough for 100 people on their own.
