Not Martha

Next GBA Talk – Defining Business Success on Your Own Terms

Grassroots June Meeting

I’m very excited, Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears (co-founders of Raised Eyebrow Web Studio and authors of The Boss of You) will be the speakers for the Grassroots Business Association meeting next Wednesday here in Seattle. Lauren and Emira came and spoke at The Lab earlier this year and the information they had to share was incredibly helpful and solid, coming from what they learned as they started and grew their own business. I cannot wait to hear what wisdom they have to shed for the talk. If you’d like to attend please do us a favor and let us know over at, it helps us plan how many chairs we need to have in place, thanks.
The official copy:

We all think know what success looks like: wealth, happiness, perhaps a measure of fame… But creative entrepreneurs are redefining success to include other factors: time to care for ourselves and our loved ones; contributing to our communities; work that nourishes our creative instincts and fuels our passion.

When you consciously create your own personal definition of success, you breathe new life into your work. Why not explore what success looks like for you? Learn how to bring your values into the workplace, and hear stories of inspiring women who are reshaping the business world, blending entrepreneurial savvy with genuine heart and soul.

Lauren Bacon and Emira Mears co-founded Raised Eyebrow Web Studio, Inc. in February 2000, and at that time couldn’t imagine calling themselves the bosses of anyone. They now lead a team of five, and have developed a reputation for designing elegant and user-friendly websites for nonprofit organizations and small businesses. Their book, The Boss of You: Everything A Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run, and Maintain Her Own Business, is the business book they wish they’d had.

Due to the size again we are moving this to the Hugo House. We will be taking small donations to keep us going. If you want to purchase The Boss of You from Laura and Emira please remember to bring cash or your checkbook.
