On Saturday, June 11th, I was a thrilled to participate as a co-panelist and speaker at the Illustrious Women's 1st Annual Empowerment Mixer. I shared my 15-year experience working with over 50 Beauty Fortune 500 Companies and producing events like Diddy White Party LA, Bailey's Beauty Shop and Crown Royal Barbershop to name a few. My co-panelist an Evolving Beauty-- Mz. Skittelz, author of "Icing on Top Ain't Always Sweet," business entrepreneur and mogul owner of the Cultural Classic Boutique Chain, Cup Cake Mafia.
The mixer was held in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin and presented by Founder & CEO Illustrious Women (IW) (another Evolving Beauty) Tina Brown and author of Defying the Odds, a native of Wisconsin, she now resides in Atlanta, Georgia.
There's Enough Success for Us All."
The Illustrious Women's mission is to educate, empower, and drive aspiring and current entrepreneurs to their full potential--personally and professionally. The event was started with a vendor mixer followed by a panel discussion of entreprenuerial #girltalk related to being a women in business. There were some talented and creative vendors there too.
Here are just a few of the beauty vendors present to include:

WHAT MAKE ILLUSTRIOUS WOMEN SPECIAL?
This women's organization is supporting women to grow from small business to big business to legacy status, as we describe in Evolving Beauty, the book. IW is about preserving, reinforcing and growing women collectively and their tribes, as it's termed in Evolving Beauty, the book. Those demising, evil-spirited competitive and emotionally immature behaviors that women sometimes display--so passe.' They only weaken our community and society. IW's mission in-part, seeks to unify women to dismiss the notion "there's only room for one and educate women to empower themselves."
This event was AMAZING! The room was a full diverse women from ages 18 to 60+ years old, from a variety of industries: beauty, fashion, culinary, travel and more...Whether you're already an entrepreneur, building your brand ? Or aspiring to become an entrepreneur? Illustrious Women has something for you.
