We interrupt this week’s normally scheduled profile to bring you an entire GROUP of “Dream BIG” features. The Young Female Entrepreneurs of Los Angeles. Last Thursday was the inaugural event for an “in real life” meetup of women that had, to date, mostly met through social media. These young female entrepreneurs are beautiful, talented, funny, smart, savvy and love connecting with their peers. Women who know a secret: we do more by working and collaborating together. The women present for the event ranged from social entrepreneurs developing business opportunities in emerging markets to designers, artists, chefs and a woman hoping to open her very own wine bar. (***I want to be HER friend!)

I cannot say thank you enough to Jennifer for having the vision to create & continue YFE on the national scale. Any woman can partake in the YFE activities Jennifer hosts each week on Twitter and YFE TV. The blog is also a gem, containing rich information from peers and female leaders. Later this week I’ll be sharing the origins of YFE L.A. on the YFE blog.
A million-and-one thank you’s also belong to Christina Dely for her time & talent as the photographer behind these gorgeous photos. You can see the full set of photos via the YFE L.A. Facebook Group. Big “THANKS!” to Stephanie at Jewelmint (Beachmint) for donating $20.00 gift cards to all YFE attendees. Special “thank you” to Nailah and Donna for believing in me and jumping on board with such enthusiasm.
If you’re a YFE anywhere in the world and looking to create a community like this, leave a note below. I’d love to help you find ways to connect to the women in your town or city. Happy women, glowing women, energetic women connecting and smiling is a beautiful, magnificent wonder to behold.
