We had our final Women’s History Month dinner last night in Riverside, CA. The incredible Janae (@GlamorousDrinks) of Glamorous Drinks in LA partnered with us to host the evening (she drove three hours to get there!). She prepared a beautiful speech about the power of womanhood and it set the tone for a really amazing night.
We had 15 beautiful pros with us, and 7 women from Thumbtack. We met @craftyfunwpam, a school teacher who quit her job to go to French pastry school and now owns a cakery. We met @Penn-The-Moment, who credits Thumbtack not only with jumpstarting her photography career, but also bringing her together with her now fiancé. @JodiWeddings, a woman who worked in healthcare, trying her best to help families in need - after years of dealing with all of the sadness and heartbreak, she decided to become a wedding officiant, so she can bring joy to people. These woman are business owners, mothers, wives, sisters, daughters - they wear all the hats and they do it brilliantly. We saw collaborations formed and friendships made, and felt so much gratitude and positivity. I'm proud that Thumbtack has played a role in each of these stories.
If any of you have feedback about this event, or ideas for future meet-ups, please let us know here in this thread. Thank you for being an inspiration!
