Event Recap: Create Your Own Career Panel

CYC_Philly_NewWe couldn't have asked for a better turnout at this past Wednesday night's "Create Your Own Career" panel (co-hosted with Elsa & Me).  We started the night at the beautiful Toile in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia enjoying endless wine and delicious bites (provided by Anna of Koliyan). Mixed with a beautiful crowd of entrepreneurial, ambitious women, we started the panel discussion to a very eager group. Our lovely panel, consisting of Jeanine, Porsha, Antoinette, Melissa, Maja, and Nur-E, was a hit! Questions consisted of "How did you know your passion was more than just a hobby?," "How do plan for a child when you're an entrepreneur?," "Should you focus on education before starting a business?" and so on. You can view some of our live tweets from the night, using the hashtag #CreateYourOwnCareer. Here are some of our favorite tweets from the night:



Throughout the event, we were reminded about the  growing community of female entrepreneurs here in the Philadelphia area and how we need to support each other more often. We were so inspired after this event, so we hope to introduce a few new projects for our local femmes in the area. Take a look at the photos above and be ready for more amazing events hosted/co-hosted by Femme & Fortune in the very near future.
