Mother's Day Event

hosted by Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine!

Le Plonque was lucky enough to be involved in the Mother's Day Event hosted by Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine! Hosted at Sydney's ultimate start up den Fishburners, we celebrated and learnt through experiences of the 'Original Bitches' who were hustling and starting empires before us.

For those of you that have not heard of Like Minded Bitches Drinking Wine (LMBDW), it is an entrepreneurial group for business savvy women and girl bosses to discuss building their empires. Find our more info about the group and its founders here! Tuesday's LMBDW event featured delicious nibbles and an interview with the group's fabulous co-founder Gen George and her amazing mum, Jane.

The evening began with the ladies meeting new and old friends, whilst indulging in the amazing cheese and fruit spread by Platter Wonderland and Le Plonque's choices of Remy Massin champagne. After everyone had stocked up on copious amounts of Camembert and Rosé, we took our seats to listen to the extroverted mother-daughter duo.

The attendees listened on as Jane George navigated us through her various business ventures throughout her life. With the help of her daughter's questioning, Jane delved into hilarious anecdotes on securing business loans, 'colourful' debt collecting, and her successes and pitfalls when starting her own businesses. Her passionate personality was incredibly empowering, encouraging the women in the room to go with their gut and not to hesitate. 

The talk concluded with question time where LMBDW members had the chance to query Jane about success in business or simply state what they were thinking. When asked what an important factor was when running her businesses, Jane answered 'attempting to eliminate fear'. According to Jane, the biggest handbrake we have in life is asking ourselves 'Can I do this?'. If we eliminate this fear and become a doer, people will embrace you and help you along the way. Jane preached a mentality that today could be start of the rest of your life. 'Start something small and step by step build, once you get a taste for it (starting a business), you will fly'.

Empowered and ready to connect, the women spent the remaining hours of the night networking with like minded ladies and finishing off the bottles of beautiful sparkling wine. A big thank you from Le Plonque to Gen and Jane George for an insightful and fun chat, LMBDW Sydney Ambassador Jane Oja for involving us in the event, and Fishburners for hosting an incredible night.

We look forward to many exciting events in the future!
