On June 15, we teamed up with BaubleBar to co-host our "shop and talk" launch party on the theme "Women and the Media." Joining the discussion to lend their insights were some of the most inspiring women we could imagine:
Multiple Emmy-nominated TV Host and CEO of PowerwomenTV, Amy Palmer
Vice President of Talk Programming for SiriusXM Radio, Liz Aiello
Our very own Editor-in-Chief, Kara Eschbach
Among the many gems that were shared during the conversation, we particularly appreciated the reminders that "entrepreneurship is a journey and you'll find out who you are while you're in it" and when it comes to media, "we don't have to be men. We can like other things and not be considered frivolous or silly" to the need for "honesty and supporting each other as women."
Our event was the capstone to what began as a dream and a conversation over brunch nearly two and a half years ago. We were so delighted to have many exceptional friends - new and old - join us to help us celebrate our launch. Please keep in touch and continue to help us spread the word about Verily to your friends, and through your media and social media outlets using the hashtag #VerilyNow. Our success is dependent upon your friendship.
As we've discovered during the launch of Verily, in the words of Amy Palmer, "If your intention is right and good, you can achieve anything." Thank you again for joining us! We know this is only the beginning.
