First on the agenda was the A-Z Business Boot Camp. Participants were given the insight needed to help catapult their business to the next level.  Next, participants were met with a networking happy hour that included gourmet desserts and drinks.  Afterwards, the ladies were treated to lobster tails and rice for dinner. Following dinner, participants had the option to participate in the Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta Vision Board Party.  Ladies Who Brunch Atlanta fosters entrepreneurs and empowerment to help women become more self-sufficient. Cofounders Bianca and Dayy Bella, created the vision board party to motivate women into thinking about their 2015 goals on poster so they can see them and begin to take action.  “What’s a vision without a plan” Day Bella proclaimed.

The night concluded with a GirlPower pajama party.
