Lifestyle Design and Culture Change: #bossbabesatx x Aceable (Session 2)

Produced by #bossbabesATX, SHE TALKS is an ongoing discussion-based personal and professional development series, tackling topics from finances to intersectional feminism.

On August 31 at REVELRY's new space, we hosted the second event in our three-part summer installation of SHE TALKS with Aceable. There will be one more session in this series; stay tuned!


The Vibe

Hosted at REVELRY (formerly Byron & Blue), this second session featured four panelists, chatting both the reasoning and strategy behind their side hustles and bootstrapped career paths. Statistically speaking, more and more women are diversifying their incomes and exploring entrepreneurship outside of their nine-to-fives. It's a global and national phenomenon—and we want to know why.

*Prior to the panel, we were joined by Nyla Spooner of Thoughts Caught in My Fro to speak on Hurricane Harvey relief efforts and her work with the Counter Balance Disaster Restoration project. At the panel, we collected donated items for families and communities displaced by Hurricane Harvey. To learn more about how you can get involved, head here.
