Were you there? Did you attend #WIPIN2014 this past weekend? Over 200 amazingly talented women were there, sharing, talking, sharing, laughing, sharing, learning, and just being sociable. It was one of the best business conferences I have ever attended.
A key point of the conference was to bring the women of the pet industry together to meet each other. As we sat around tables over breakfast, we shared stories and thoughts and hopes and dreams. As we furiously wrote notes during sessions, we marveled at what we knew and what we didn't and how exciting it was to be in an atmosphere of learning, there in Portland, OR.
There were women dedicated to pets from A to Z and women who were dog focused, and women who brought their delightful dogs (to the great delight of those of us who could not...having another furry body to pet and cuddle during the weekend made missing our own pets less of a trauma), and women who weren't pet Moms at all, but were women in business and were there to connect with other women in business.
