Last evening I attended the NEWBO Awards of Excellence Gala at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston. NEWBO is celebrating their 30 year anniversary! It was a very fun filled evening, with Jimmy Tingle serving as master of Ceremonies. Jimmy had all of us laughing from the moment he stepped up to the mike. He is one very hysterical man and should you ever have the chance to take in one of his shows, I highly recommend doing so. Congratulations to all the Quest Award nominees and winners.
I have mentioned NEWBO here before, and I do so again to encourage any women business owners in the Boston area to join this wonderful organization. Each time I attend an event I connect with the most amazing women and come away truly inspired. Two examples of great connections from last night were meeting Jennifer Smith of Color Express and Kristi Andrews, owner of The Barkery. I am talking with Jennifer about helping me out with some one time use stencil materials, such as the Modellos I so often feature here. Kristi, has to have one of the most fun businesses ever! She runs a bakery for dogs! Even if you are not local, Kristi ships all over the country, so let your dog browse her site and drool a little.
