It's okay to have questions! We're here to answer them.
~Inquiries are always welcome, mama~
What are y'all trying to do here? Seems fishy.
We're three babes who want all the boss-ass creative women in Austin to come together, get to know each other and collaborate. We also want to increase awareness of women in business, as well as use positive language to address some of the barriers women face as professionals. If you have any more questions, feel free to email us at email@example.com.
How do meets work?
At meets, we invite women to casually come together to chat and collaborate, without the stigmas of typical networking events or the culture of competition. We usually have about three to four vendors, featuring women in the community and their small businesses. We use an hour of the meet for "Babe Announcements," a section of time that gives each woman a minute on the mic to proclaim her passions and ask for jobs/connections/etc.
I've seen this Instagram called @bossbabe. Are you affiliated with them?
Nope! Not us. We're an entirely local movement, based in Austin, TX.
How do I join #bossbabesATX?
Do you self-identify as a woman? In our eyes, you're already a member!
Are there membership fees?
We don't formally charge membership fees. There is no induction ceremony. We want everyone to feel free to reach out to us (or others on social media via our channels), no matter how many functions of ours you may or may not have attended.
For this reason, we only charge a ticket price for meets and some of our events. By paying for these tickets, you are supporting #bossbabesATX, and all of the hard work and effort that goes in to running this organization.
Do I have to pay to become a vendor at one of your events?
Nope! We're here for you, and we get that booth fees can be annoying as hell. We don't charge any of our vendors, artists, or any other event crew participants a fee. Want to become a vendor? Email Maureen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you promote my events/business on your platform?
Shoot us an email at email@example.com, and we'll see what we can do.
I've got some badass art/music I want to share! Can I play/vend/showcase my stuff at one of your events?
We're always looking for artists and musicians to collaborate with! We run artist showcases and regularly book bands for some of our meets. Interested? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I get onto your blog?
If you'd like a feature, submit your music/art/work to email@example.com.
Do you accept blog contributors?
We do! We don't currently have a writing staff, and we don't issue assignments, BUT we are always accepting pitches. Let's get you published, girl.
I want to donate a space. Who do I talk to?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org. We're always looking for venues!
Where does the money go?
#bossbabesATX is entirely self-funded. All of the website costs, administrative, management and event costs are covered by the lovely babes that buy the $3 to $5 tickets to our events.
How can I help?
Come to an event, first and foremost! We appreciate your support more than anything.
If you have a specific idea in mind, though, please email email@example.com.
Or if you're feeling real nice, you can write us a big, fat check, so we can start our entirely women-run creative space. That'd be great, too.
