This weekend I picked up the latest edition of CRAVE Seattle, The Urban Girl’s Manifesto, and I literally haven’t wanted to put it down. It’s chock full of amazing and inspiring entrepreneurial women doing really cool things. From the inventor of babylegs to boutique owners to fitness gurus and personal stylists, it’s all about businesses that are locally-owned and operated by women, right here in our city.
Little did I know, there are now CRAVEguides in 32 cities, from Amsterdam to NYC to Portland, LA, San Francisco and everywhere in between. If you haven’t heard of CRAVEguide, it’s billed as “The ultimate guide to the places women CRAVE in the Seattle Metropolitan Area, including more than 150 women you need to know.” You can take a peek inside to see what I’m talking about.
I’m excited to explore these local, stylish, women-owned businesses, and hopefully meet a few of these inspiring women too. You can find CRAVE on Twitter (@CRAVEseattle) with this fabulous description: “CRAVE innovatively connects urban gals to the sassiest, gutsiest, most inspiring people they need to know in town.” And they’re on Facebook too, of course!
If you’re not in Seattle, check out the CRAVEguide for your city. You’re sure to discover some great new business and probably re-discover some old favorites.
Here’s to amazing, inspiring, authentic, smart women everywhere!
