Locals gathered for the first ever “Inspire,” a sold out female entrepreneurship micro-conference graciously hosted by Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach.

Southbay magazine invited Erin Condren, Pamela Salzman and Jill Willard to share where they started, why they chose their path and what inspires their journey. Thanks to Keri Murphy for hosting the program and NEFT Vodka for providing mid-program cocktails.

Guests were treated at the Pampering Pop-Ups Presented by Providence Little Company of Mary with manicures and massages by Sand Spa, waxes by Human Landscapers and a hair-styling bar by Arnold’s Salon.

Local retailers Kate Lester Home, Morgan’s Jewelers Torrance, Loren Nicole, Outerknown and Right Tribe showcased the unique items they have on deck for the holiday gifting season.

In between the pampering and shopping, ladies struck a pose at the Marcus Medical boomerang booth and got their lip prints read by intuits from The Official Lipstick Reader.

Special thanks to Love This Way for the traffic-stopping light installations, Rolling Hills Flower Mart for the florals, and VOX DJs for keeping everyone dancing all night long.

Thank you to the following sponsors for helping make Inspire possible – Alison Clay-Duboff, Hutchinson Dental, Mioni Family Law, Kathleen Adams from SEIA, Gayle Theodore Drake, Locale90, Bita Davoodian DDS, Parsa Orthopedics, Nicole Odom-Reis, Dr. Su Sachar, Maison Luxe, West Coast Living and She Sez.
