Ever picture yourself at the helm of a successful business, gazing out the window of your corner office at a sweeping view of the city? Us too. Unfortunately, you're not getting any younger sister, and it's time to make that dream a reality!

Enter chic Philly-based (and women run!) branding agency, letter27. In a three-part crash course on branding basics, co-founders and business partners Staci Katz and Nicole McGann will show you everything you need to know about marketing the most important resources you've got: yourself and your ideas. Tickets run a budget-friendly $30 per session in advance or $35 at the door, and seventy-five bucks gets you into all three.  In addition to a q and a session and one-on-one advice from a letter27 partner, there will be time to chat it up with your fellow ambitious Philly chicks. And did we mention that the workshops are being held at one of our fav Philly dens of decadence, the Naked Chocolate Cafe, on 18th street, and that there will be plenty of hors d'oeuvres? Yum!

So show up on Tue, May 18th, for the first workshop, "Who Are You (As a Brand)?", which runs from 5:30pm-7:30pm. Bring your dreams and your appetite. Because it's time to get that cafe-cum-bookstore-cum-doggie playland you've been dying to open off the ground...and there will be chocolate.
