Lisa here, founder of We Are Women Owned.
It’s my goal to send you a note at the end of each month to say hello, and tell you all about what we’ve been working on at WAWO. April has been quite the eventful month, and I can’t wait for our pop-up event that’s happening THIS weekend — can you make it?
We’re also looking to expand our community and host pop-ups outside of NYC.
Boston felt like the natural next step, not too far from home, and a city full of amazing creatives and entrepreneurs.
That’s why I went to Boston a few weeks ago with my pup and fiancé in tow to scope out potential pop-up spaces for our September 2019 event.
I want to share my mini Boston guide with you:
- Where we stayed: The Revolution Hotel
- Favorite place to brunch & grab dessert: Tatte Bakery
- Favorite place to eat something exciting and new: Citrus & Salt (Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Street Corn is an absolute must-try!)
- Favorite local shop: Olive & Grace
- Favorite neighborhood: Beacon Hill
While in Boston, I hosted a meetup with a few Boston babes in business at Tatte — which I indulged in three times during my visit — it’s THAT delicious! The ladies and I had the absolute best time getting to know each other. I felt so welcomed by the Boston women in business. I even caught up with one of my college roommates, Christina, whom I hadn’t connected with in over 10 years.
These are the ladies that joined me:
- Jackie, WAWO’s Social Media Manager
- May, founder of Girlfriends Boston
- Courtney, founder of The Polished Decade
- Christina, co-founder of M3 Home and Decor
- Kara, lead fitness instructor and founder of the Unhesitant Podcast
- Rayna, calligrapher and illustrator

I’m feeling grateful for my feature on The Cnnekt, a media outlet for her, him, and them that features all Voices through digital and IRL interviews to build and nurture a cultured community.
For the article, I open up about why I started We Are Women Owned and how feeling isolated from my peers and longing for a collective of female entrepreneurs prompted me to organize my first pop-up.
