As you may recall, last week I gave away tickets to Little Pink Book’s Spring into Ownership event here in New York City. What a lovely experience! Imagine being in a room full of women business owners for a candid discussion about the challenges and opportunities faced in your entrepreneurial journey. Each of the panelists have achieved amazing success in business and were generous enough to share some of their secrets with those of us following in their footsteps.

One of my personal faves on the panel also happens to be the woman behind one of my guiltiest pleasures, Tate’s Cookies. Kathleen Tate started baking at age 11. She now sells 50 million cookies per year and brings in $10 million annually. Her cookie was named “America’s best chocolate chip cookie” and I couldn’t agree more!

I was so busy absorbing all of the valuable information being shared that I didn’t get to capture many photos. Here are a few for you to enjoy:

A room full of business women is a powerful one!

Kudos to all of the brilliant event panelists and the fab moderator for Little Pink Book’s Spring into Ownership event: Rebecca Blumenstein (The Wall Street Journal), Kathleen King (Tate’s Bake Shop), Celeste Gudas (24 Seven), and Bonnie Marcus (Bonnie Marcus Collection).

Special thanks to Kristen Tate Communications and the ladies of Little Pink Book for the giveaway tickets. Looking forward to the possibility of joining forces with you again for your next New York City event!

    Congratulations to the ladies who received the tickets. I just discovered your site and already love it. It’s a blessing to be able to interact (even if online) with like-minded sisters.
