    S2: E6 What the Lesson of Stone Soup Teaches Us

    S2: E6 What the Lesson of Stone Soup Teaches Us

    Have you heard of the story of "Stone Soup"? There are many variations on the story of stone soup, but the moral of the story is the same. Take a listen. 

    DCfempreneur is celebrating 1 Year! We are celebrating one year of community, growing together, becoming better and stronger -- together!

    Join us on Wednesday, February 5, 5:30-7:30pm for a Networking Mixer. We will celebrate our Anniversary and also network with the members of the Tower Club. Enjoy hors d'oeuvres, appetizers and one drink ticket, included in your registration. A signature cocktail created just for our group will be offered at the bar for $5. This event is open to the public. DCfempreneur Founding and FAB members will receive complimentary admission, including significant others/spouses.

    Launched in February 2019, DCfempreneur was founded to offer support and a sense of community to DC area female entrepreneurs. It's truly astonishing how fast we have grown and blessed we are with the amazing professional women that have become our Founding and Fempreneur Advocate Business members.

    The networking events and workshops over the course of the past year were designed to not only help you learn something new, and be visible in your business, but to share your skills, knowledge and expertise. What is remarkable is how the members themselves have come together on their own to continue to work together long after the conclusion of each event. This is what makes us the most proud. Together, you have created this community.

    The more time we spend getting to know one another, the stronger that rapport becomes. DCfempreneur is honored that we have helped you find your next collaboration, opportunity, strategic alliance or referral partner. By networking and building relationships with other business professionals, you have experienced the impact first hand and have come together to grow your businesses to make them more purposeful, profitable and sustainable. For that we celebrate YOU!

    We would love for you to join us in this celebration of YOU! Starting your own business is no small feat, and this community is here to rally behind you and help you succeed.

    The proceeds of this event will go into a fund to increase the quality of the DCfempreneur Podcast for our members by using better quality production software, equipment, and editing tools and also to build a new learning management system. 

    Thank you for your support.

    S2 E5: A Decade in Review

    S2 E5: A Decade in Review

    We have heard it a million times: "Life is Short". We have limited time on Earth, but we can live our lives to the fullest everyday. Are you truly living life to its fullest? Are you spending time on what matters most (to you)? This is a question I revisit every year when I work in my PowerSheets.  It’s so important to look back, celebrate your wins, acknowledge your growth and the lessons learned and that will bring you closer to your dream life. Sounds like a Cliche? I promise it's not. 

    The 2010s are coming to a close and we’re about to enter a whole new decade. I don’t know about you, but a lot has happened over the last ten years. Even in the last one year; incredible things, super challenging things, but look at how much has changed. 

    Psychologist and computer scientist J.C.R. Licklider said “People overestimate what can be done in one year, and underestimate what can be done in ten.”  

    So in today's episode, we talk about A Decade In Review:


    Where were you 10 years ago today? Consider where you are now, what has changed?
    What have you learned over these past ten years?
    What mistakes have you made? 
    What were your lessons learned? 
    What have you said you'd do "one day" that you haven’t made time for? (eh hem, go do it NOW!)
    What do you need to let go of (cue Frozen music) in order move forward in 2020?

    I’d love to know — what’s the #1 thing you’re letting go of before the new decade? We will be doing a special ceremony at the Holiday Party on Sunday, (with super cool dissolvable paper!) hope you will be joining us, otherwise, please let me know in the comments below. Share as much detail as you feel comfortable.

    Interested in being a guest on the DCfempreneur podcast? Feel free to email me: Lisa@DCfempreneur.com

    Happy Holidays!

    Season 2, Ep. 1: Girl Meets Food

    Season 2, Ep. 1: Girl Meets Food

    Season 2 of the DCfempreneur Podcast kicks off with a VIVID interview with Mary Kong DeVito of Girl Meets Food. She is not only a dear friend, Food blogger, Tastemaker, but Podcast Host herself. In this episode, we cover everything from Mary growing up in a Chinese household in New York City where her family’s restaurants were her playground and how she ate everything from duck blood and pork belly. She even had a column in the Washington City Paper all about her strange eats!
    Mary built a career in blogging and writing where her work has been published in USA Today, The Washington Post, Eater, Washington City Paper, & more! An early adopter of digital media, she founded the dining site Girl Meets Food as a cover for her debilitating addiction to fried chicken, which was acquired in 2013. The site, not the chicken. A serial entrepreneur with an drive to create, Mary was once named Washington Post’s “Favorite Local Foodie.” She launched Fatback Media in 2015 as a tribute to her love of the pig. Now she hosts The Girl Meets Food podcast, an extension of her award-winning blog. Each week, she gets personal with female tastemakers in the hospitality industry about topics that deeply affect women. It’s raunchy, it’s provocative and we’re not apologizing for it. It’s a must-listen for the curious.
