Women's New Business Factory

This weekend, I had a terrific time attending the BlogHer Conference in Santa Clara, CA, with Cathy Mosca and Phoebe Espiritu, two colleagues here at Tom Peters.

This amazing conference had 100% women speakers and 80% women attendees, all focusing on Women and Blogging. Check out these pictures.

There were so many good break-out sessions, but I wanted to mention the feeling in the room when Mary Hodder, Denise Howells, and Patricia Nakache led a session on women starting businesses and getting funding. The feeling was like one of those noisy starting gates where thoroughbreds are waiting in their slots to run the Kentucky Derby, ready to kick up their heels. Believe me, we were all chomping at the bit.
