Young Female Entrepreneurs presents… Lazy Sunday, a first Sunday of the month Twitter chat over a movie with other socially savvy women in their 20s and 30s.
Meet other women who Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, etc. who are entrepreneurial minded while sharing a movie from the comfort of your own home. For our first Lazy Sunday, we’ll be watching a holiday favorite, Love Actually (it’s also their 10th Anniversary this year too!).
Watch #loveactually with me 12/8 at 11p/2e with @YFEntrepreneur for #YFElove. More http://yfe.me/actuallylove [click to tweet]
Gather the essentials: mimosa, snacks, laptop, snuggie. Hit play at 11pm PST/2pm EST on Sunday, December 8th. Netflix offers the movie for free if you are a subscriber now. If you’re like me, you might even own the DVD.
We’ll be mixing and mingling on Twitter and Instagram leading up to the event and of course while we watch using the hashtag #YFElove.
See you Sunday, December 8th on Twitter under the hashtag #YFElove!
Lauryn Ballesteros of SMLaunch.com shares with YFE how to sell yourself, without feeling like you’re spamming people. She offers us advice on how to book speaking engagements, how to pitch yourself to the media, and even what to say when someone asks you what you do.
Join us LIVE for free on Wednesday, September 18th at 4pm Pacific/7pm Eastern to learn about “all things lean.” If you’re a fan of The Lean Startup by Eric Ries or even if you’ve never heard of it this will be an experience you won’t want to miss.
Why show up live and not just wait for it to come up on Youtube? The best part of coming to a live webcast is the ability to interact with other like minded individuals (in our case entrepreneurial women in their twenties and thirties). Share your insight, ask questions, and connect with others you can followup with post-live event. Plus, we’ll be featuring your tweets and questions throughout the 30 minute live webcast.
Have a question for Kate? Ask away! Tweet your question to @JackieMJensen

1- Show up just before 4pm Pacific to YFElive.com and push play. Jacqueline and her guest will be leading the event via live stream
2- Login to the chat using Twitter or Facebook and introduce yourself
3- Tweet out your favorite quotes and Instagram where you are watching the live stream from using the hashtag #YFEVegasTech

Enter to win 2 oz packages of YFE Sophie’s popular Berry Bliss and Cacao Magic and a tote and mug set from Kathy of GFree and Happy. To enter, all you have to do is tell us what your lunch time routine is in the comments by this Thursday, May 2nd at 12am PDT.
My company, Ovaleye, is a family business where I partner with my parents. My mom, Kathy is a big fan of YFE often checking out the live streams and clicking like on our Facebook Page. One company I’ve followed because of #YFEla’s Erin Haslag of WELLinLA.com is Philosophie. After getting a few newsletters from Sophie (the owner) I forwarded one on to my mom after reading something about the powder being gluten free (which she is) that supports and boosts your immune system (after being glutened for years she was constantly getting sinus infections).
She’s gone through a few packages now and experiments with lunches and snacks at Ovaleye HQ, which my son and I often get to be her taste testers for. I know a common goal within the YFE community is to be at our personal bests when it comes to health, business, and everything in between. Erin of WELLinLA.com on one of our recent #YFEchat commented that when we’re only able to conquer our goals when we take care of ourselves first.
To get the self-care week kicked off right, I want to help one of you try out your own Philosophie recipes. In the meantime, let’s make this giveaway fun by inspiring each other with the different ways we take our lunch. Comment with what you make yourself (whether it’s pre-packed for the office, eaten at your makeshift kitchen counter desk, or eaten out with colleagues).
Tag photos of your lunches on Instagram and Tout with #YFEchat. When we announce the winner Friday morning we’ll highlight what the community is eating. Check back the rest of the week for advice for self-care on the blog, and this Thursday on #YFEchat featuring Vasavi Kumar Patel.
