While the Women’s Conference is considered the premier networking event for women in the country, locally we’re fortunate that business women like Jodi Womack (No More Nylons), Donna Van Hoesslin (Linchpins), Hilary Forstadt Jiler and Tea Silvestre (Green Drinks), Erika Harding (Architexture Salon & Gallery/Fashion Week) and others offer fun networking opportunities on a regular basis.
This Friday, catch two great events: “Pink Party” in Ventura and in Ojai, Women’s Business Social.
First stop, Erika Harding’s salon Architexture, 25 S Ventura Ave, which hosts “4th Annual Pink Party” from 5-8pm. Fun! I went last year and donated to receive pink extensions for my hair! Here’s the low down from their facebook event page:
Join us for our pink party for Breast Cancer Awareness month!
Get pink extensions, check out the goods from Gracie’s Closet – a luxury dog boutique, beautiful new jewelry, save the ta ta’s stickers and bracelets, and top name purses at rock bottom prices.
Free skin and hair consultations as well as mini makeovers!
As always, we will have a raffle for great prizes and goodies for everyone. RSVP and bring a friend to get extra drawing entries.
Stop by and have some food and drinks and visit with us!
Say hi! I’ll be there bright and early with a table of my new poetry books Middle of the Night Poems From Daughter to Mother ::Mother to Son.
Then I’m scooting up the hill to Ojai’s Theater for this month’s Women’s Business Social hosted by Jodi Womack and No More Nylons who says:
My intention for the Socials is to create a free, professional network, to bring the AMAZING women together to talk, connect and promote the work they love doing. That’s what No More Nylons is all about. Doing the work you love… and being who you are. If you’re new to town or even visiting, this is a great way to soak up the local flavor and get to know the women that make this town purr…
If you’re a woman in business, or a woman thinking about starting a business, you are cordially invited to our upcoming Social:
DATE:Friday night, October 29, 2010
TIME: 6-8 pm
WHERE:Theater 150 316 East Matilija Street, Ojai, CA 93023
This local performance theater is the heart of the creative performance environment in town. Since it’s the Friday night before Halloween, COSTUMES are welcome. What do you want to be when you grow up? I mean, for Halloween? I can’t wait to see. Should be fun. Then we can descend upon town after the Social… Each Social is different. This one promises to be something to remember.

I won’t have books there at the Social but I will have bookmarks to share!
