I picked up a copy of Country Living magazine from the library because I have a thing for home design. I love to look at ideas for colors and the latest trends for when I have my first house. I would consider my design style casual, clean, modern & zen. If any of that makes any sense. I don't usually look through this magazine but the March 2008 cover caught my eye. On the cover was a feature on the 2008 Women Entrepreneurs. The magazine featured 17 women in different areas of design creativity. You had one women who started her own Bed & Breakfast and now she owns four. A soapmaker, jewelry designer, chandelier designer and the list goes on. The stories of their passion to do what they loved despite where they were drew me in of course.
On another note, through the Ladies Who Launch website, there was a banner display for Vision to Venture. It is an event for women entrepreneurs through the Microsoft Office Live Small Business online workshops. The next couple of events will be in:
