Ladies Lotto: No Man’s Land

Ladies Lotto I made history recently. I am the first man ever allowed into a Ladies Lotto monthly meeting. I really had no idea that dudes were not allowed into their top-secret conclaves, but when I showed up at the door, I immediately knew I was in for trouble. “What are you doing here? No boys allowed,” She said, with her arm blocking the entryway.

Thankfully, my friend Summer Rayne Oakes saw what was happening, and came out and vouched for me. Summer was the special guest speaker that night, so she had some serious bargaining power. After much fanagaling (I was told I could only have one drink!) and she led me into no-man’s-land! The room was packed with really cool gals. I was a bit of an eyesore, so I got to meet a lot of people. All these ladies were doing really awesome stuff – and the host was one of our favorite designers, Tara St. James of Covet!

I’ve been raving to all of my gal-pals that they absolutely have to join this network of independent, motivated, creative businesswomen! It was a really supportive, motivational, and inspirational collective. Summer Rayne spoke about her new book: Style, Naturally, and the process of writing and publishing. There was vegan food and drinks and lots of networking going on. I truly felt honored to be allowed into their midst.

If you have a lady in your life who would benefit from a network of smart, savvy, hooked-up peers, definitely tell her to join Ladies Lotto. Right now!

    One drink MAXIMUM. I think that same phrase is written on the gate to Hell.
