In Ellie’s shoes: Hosting Lessons from Power Brunch Sundays

As long as I could remember I loved event planning. At the end of 2015, I decided to host a monthly Sunday brunch with new and old female friends in 2016.

In Anna’s shoes: I decided not to stay where I was.

Natalie, or Narae as I’ve always known her, was the one to reach out and invite me to the “Power Brunch.” I accepted on a whim, thinking it’d be a nice change of pace from the male-dominated networking events I was familiar with.

In Sophia’s shoes:  Taking in New and Different Perspectives

One weekend in April, I went to an all-female Sunday brunch – sipping Mimosas over brunch food items – where we bemoaned about the unusual cold like every other New Yorker.

“Alone I’ll adventure far and wide And no matter what happens, I’ll take it all in stride!” “I’ll put my tiptoes to the test And explore far and wide and yonder, North, south, east and west!” So here I am… at the beginning.
