With speakers ranging from Rachel Ray to Nobel Peace Prize laureate Leymah Gbowee, the 14th Annual Texas Conference for Women, taking place Nov. 19, promises an incredible day of seminars, meet-ups, career advice, and inspiration.

Within moments of settling in to chat with Texas native Steve Clark, it became clear that genuine personal connection and long-lived relationships have played a pivotal role in his eclectic career with roots growing deep into the fabric of Austin. These bonds formed the foundation for his life as a photographer, restaurateur -- Clark founded the popular burger and music haven The Waterloo Icehouse in 1976 and was instrumental in furthering the careers of a number of great musical talents to come through the doors -- now gallery owner, husband, father and grandfather. From his carefully nurtured relationships, success and happiness have flourished.
Join TRIBEZA and Citizen Generation at the casual, contemporary home of Mary Anne McMahon, a real estate broker with Posh Properties. The home was built by Mark Myers and designed by Matt Casey in 2012. It was designed to accommodate a large family with six bedrooms and six bathrooms. Matt had a vision for the home to be clean and simple yet warm and inviting. The lot is beautiful with many trees allowing light to spill in through the many windows throughout the home. McMahon worked closely with Matt and designer Stacie Keliehor to design the home. The home is truly a labor of love for real estate design and architecture.
Who doesn't love photo booths? They capture a quick second of bliss with your friends that you can keep forever. Introducing a photo booth unlike any other-- Quick Draw Photo Booth is an experience, a laugh, a performance. The routine is similar to any other photo booth, but their photographer is also an artist who "develops" 3 photos in 3 minutes. These aren't just ordinary photos. They're actually drawings of each photo onto a filmstrip that you can take as a keepsake. The real photo will be available online after the event so you can enjoy the best of both worlds!
