portland biz lady meet up!

February 27, 2008

last night was the first portland biz lady meet up hosted by Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge, one of the best design blogs ever! the event took place at dwr and consisted of four speakers, including Grace and local artist Amy Ruppel, talking about being a woman in business for herself. Grace posted her notes here, so even if you weren’t able to attend last night you can still benefit! she spoke specifically about how to contact publications about getting your product featured, so if that sounds good to you, check it out!
