September’s Featured Conversation:
Ever heard of the term ”serial entrepreneur”? You know, someone who just can’t stop launching new businesses? Well Kalika Yap takes that definition to a whole…new…level. After an already impressive career in media and web development, Kalika started her first business in 1998 only to add three more successful businesses to her repertoire by 2009.
While many of us will know her best by her invention of the Luxe Link, a handy dandy (and so-darn-stylish) hanger designed to keep purses off dirty restaurant floors, we can’t forget to mention that she is founder and owner of Citrus Studios, Inc. an award-winning interactive design and consulting firm with clients like USC, UCLA, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Oh yeah, and how about The Waxing Company, Kalika’s high-end waxing studio in Honolulu that turned a profit within 120 days of launch?
Is your jaw on the floor yet? We know, ours are too. She’s like an entire panel of speakers packaged into one incredibly bright, incredibly bubbly, and incredibly ambitious lady.
Please join us for another fabulous night as we not only hear Kalika’s story but also learn how she’s managed to balance being a wife and mom while launching, growing, and managing not one, but four(!), thriving businesses.
Excited? Us too.
About SMART Conversations:
Get out of your home or office and into someone else’s workspace. SMART Conversations is a series that takes business owners into a selected “workspace” for drinks, light treats and Q and A with the business owner. It’s nice to hear what other entrepreneurs do all day, and also see it in action. These intimate get-togethers make getting to know other SMARTYs easy, casual and low-key. Come through, grab a glass, hear an interesting story and be off to your next engagement (or home to bed!). Quick, social, engaging and a little voyeristic, SMART Conversations gives you a peek behind the curtain of how someone runs their show.
Attendance: SMART Conversations is designed to be intimate, interactive, powerful and engaging. Attendance will be limited to between 30 and 50 (depending on space limitations).
