My friend Jill Hurst-Wahl went to the WISE (Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship) conference in Syracuse yesterday, and wrote a report about it on their blog, which she posted here.
There were some high powered presenters at this event. Maxine Clark is the founder of Create-a-Bear, which is found in many malls across the country. Nancy Cantor is the chancellor of Syracuse University. Susan Taylor is the former editor in chief of Essence Magazine.
I thought about going to this event, even though it was mainly for women, but decided not to go at the last minute. To me, it seemed more important for the women to have their special day, to motivate them to break out and do great things, rather than for me to crash the party for whatever my own needs might be. I’m glad Jill had a good time; maybe next year for me.
