  1. I’ve always wanted to go to Womancon. Do they do events in other cities as well? I think Womancon Atlanta would be great.

  2. Yey for Womancon! I will always support a group of women entrepreneurs. As a woman, I know how hard it can be to try to compete against a so-called “man’s world”. But then again, the ever growing number of business women always makes me smile.
