- how she started a resource that didn't exist when she started her own business
- how she stood out and made a lasting impression at her first networking event
- our mutual dislike for reaction of "Good For You!" as a woman in business
- how she juggles working full time, running a business, and events
- how she found success running online events early on in the pandemic
- lessons from running virtual events and how it is ever changing as we continue to navigate working and living in a pandemic
