#BOSSBABESATX COMMUNITY MEET-UP
AUGUST 14, 2019 FROM 6:30 TO 9:30 PM
AT THE NATIVE HOSTEL BALLROOM IN AUSTIN, TEXAS :)
We're back with one of our classic quarterly meet-ups on August 14, 2019!
Featuring guest vendors, mingling opps and more, this meet-up will begin with three stories on finding your flow state from inspiring thought leaders living and working in Austin, Texas. After our speakers hit the stage, we’ll feature 25+ community announcements from women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and leaders. Come through to hang out, meet new friends (or reconnect with old ones) and learn more about the community you live in.
All people and professions welcome.
— ON THIS SEASON’S THEME: FLOW —
A flow state, also known as “being in the zone,” is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement and enjoyment.
In life and in business, we know that we’ll face ebbs and flows. It’s natural and normal to go through stages of decline and regrowth, as technology, the market, or our own vision changes. What mindsets do we need to make sense of these cycles?
— MEET-UP SCHEDULE OF EVENTS —
6:30 to 7:30 PM
This is the time to check in and get comfortable for the evening. Browse our makers and tabling organizations. Play some Babe Bingo (our classic networking game).
