Toya Wright, Ming Lee, Claire Summers and More: Ladies Who Brunch ATL Recap

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the Ladies Who Brunch Business Conference at the glamour Le Fais Do-Do venue in Atlanta, GA. It was a 2 day conference (February 5th-7th), geared towards both aspiring and current female entrepreneurs looking to gain insight into building their brands, having business balance, connecting with others and more.

The first day of the conference consisted of workshops taught by Bianca Rush of Sassy Mitchell Hair,Nicole Garner of The Garner Circle and Dayy Jones of Bella Bar Tees. There were also Fireside Chat sessions which motivated and inspired attendees to take fast action on their dreams, revamp their current business structures and more.

In the evening, there was an amazing dinner followed by an intimate chat with keynote speaker and Founder of CurlBox, Myleik Teele. Myleik gave business gems. “A lot of times when you are here networking, you just have to be in the room, it’s not always about giving something to someone when you first meet them.” She also advised guests to use social media as a tool to be a platform, rather than gaining popularity or likes.


On Sunday, their signature brunch was held. Panelists included Jasmine Lawrence of Eden Body Works; Toya Wright, New York Times best-selling writer (Priceless Inspirations) and Garb Boutique owner;Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily; Ming Lee of Snob Life Studio; and Miss Diddy, The Brand Group LA. The panel was hosted by Ariane Davis of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.”

Many women traveled from near and far; some flew in by way of NYC and others drove from Mississippi. They all were touched and inspired by the awesome experience. Bonds were created and lives were ultimately changed through the advice given to them.
