When you venture in to business for yourself, it’s nice to have some support from folks in the same line of work. The Austin group, Babes in Business, was set up for just that purpose. Close to 500 central Texas small business owners who generally work in crafty, art or other creative fields participate in an active Yahoo Group and meet once a month to share ideas, resources and help support each other.
The group was originally founded by Jennifer Perkins of Naughty Secretary Club, and is now run by Anne Marie Beard of *annemarie* Style for the Individual. Members meet on the last Thursday of every month, and their next meeting is this Thursday evening. Several Babes in Business members are participating in Bazaar Bizarre at Maker Faire next month, and have already started sharing ideas and questions on the Yahoo Group. No doubt the topic will be a hot discussion at this week’s meeting.
To join Babes in Business, visit the Yahoo Group Page. Membership is moderated, so be patient as your request is processed. More information on this week’s meeting and archives rich with business tips and info are available once membership is approved.
Just a small sampling of some of the businesses represented in the Austin Babes in Business group.
