Women of Pacific Palisades, get ready: Success Becomes Her, with Palisadian entrepreneurs Jordan Catapano and Dana Goldstein at the helm, is hosting its first gathering of 2019 on Tuesday, January 29.
Riviera resident Marissa Hermer will be on hand to talk about her journey as a business woman, entrepreneur, reality TV star, author, wife, mother and owner of The Draycott in Palisades Village.
Success Becomes Her is a networking group designed for “like-minded female entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs” to share “advice, experience and inspiration”—no matter what step of the journey they are at.
The group, which previously met at Palisades Branch Library, has now moved locations to incorporate other local businesses. The last meeting took place at happy LA boutique, and on January 29, the group will gather at Pacific Palisades Woman’s Club.
Goldstein, who owns Serendipity Event and Floral Design, and Catapano, who founded This Girl Walks Into A Bar with her sister, both shared that they are encouraged to keep hosting Success Becomes Her because of the response they have received.
“It’s the emails we get back in response, the mood at the event,” Goldstein explained. “It reignites the fire inside of people, reinspires a lot of people and allows them to connect and feel like they’re moving forward—that they’re able to do these things.
“They feel empowered hearing other people’s stories.”
This will be the seventh session of Success Becomes Her.
“Connections are being made right in front of our eyes,” Catapano shared.
Previous speakers have been Ellen Ballon Dante of Deity Animal Rescue, Tuki Maxon of Plated by Tuki and the Post’s own Nilanti Narain.
Admission, which is open to all genders, for the event will be $25, and includes wine, hors d’oeuvres and a swag bag, which will feature items from female-run businesses, including coupons, vouchers and little gifts, Goldstein explained. Attendees are encouraged to bring business cards if they have them.
The event will take place at PPWC, located at 901 Haverford Avenue, from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
