by invitation only

Last night I attended an event with Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, one of the 5 cofounders of Gilt Groupe. She spoke about working with her best friend, about starting a company right before the recession of 2008, and about her reaction to the many people who told her that the business would not take off.

She seemed so down to earth, and I would have loved to have a chance to talk one on one with her for longer - I'm sure I could learn a lot from her! One of my favorite things that she said was regarding women in business:  "We have to support each other." So true.

I am so excited to delve into the book she wrote with Alexis Maybank, her best friend and cofounder.
