Hi Bloggosphere! We're new here but it's nice to meet you all. We've been meaning to blog since we launched in December, but it's so easy to find excuses, right?!
The thing that inspired us to start is the event that happened on the 8th of March which, if you've been living under a rock, was International Women's Day. Like so many things, it seemed bigger than ever this year, amplified by social media. But only in a good way! We got to share in so many events that happened, see beautiful blooms gifted by awesome bosses to their talented lady staff, and read inspiring quotes by inspiring women.
Some of our favourites:
"We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back." - Malala Yousafzai
"In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders." - Sheryl Sandberg
"Well behaved women seldom make history"- Eleanor Roosevelt
One half of The Small Batch Gift Co attended a fantastic event held by Fusion Biz Babes and Villa Managment to celebrate Perth businesswomen (the other half of The Small Batch Gift Co was home breast feeding her suuuuuuuuper cute 7 day old baby boy!)
At the breakfast event, we heard about the amazing work The Esther Foundation does locally to educate, encourage, empower and enrich young women to reach their potential. We heard from a panel of successful business woman about their "raw" stories: their rock bottom moments, their "f*$! yeah" moments and everything in between. We drank champagne. We gazed at the Perth CBD glittering in the sunshine. Yup, it was awesome! And it was so great to meet other local Perth business women and Insta-friends and put a face to their account!
And we really felt this final quote was vibing throughout that lovely event and the entire day:
"WE RISE BY LIFTING OTHERS".
