Gilt Groupe Co-Founder Alexis Maybank in Winter Park, Florida

About a month ago I was invited by Marie Claire magazine to attend Marie Claire’s and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse’s “Women in Business” speaker series at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse here in Winter Park, FL. Our featured speaker for the evening was Alexis Maybank, amazing entrepreneur and co-founder of Gilt Groupe.

She talked about the importance of surrounding yourself with strong network of mentors and colleagues who you can learn a lot from and who want you to succeed. She also stressed the importance of flexibility when building a small business. It was a great evening of networking and fun – such a fabulous event to be a part of!

For tweets from that night follow Ruth’s Chris WP: @RuthsChrisWP . I’ve also attached the link for the Women in Business speaker series here.

We were fortunate enough to receive copies of Alexis’s book “By Invitation Only“, co-authored by fellow Gilt Groupe founder Alexandra Wilson.

Don’t forget to comment on my latest giveaway from Sophie & Trey – I’ll be choosing a winner soon!

XOXO, Mel
