PxP Co-founders invited for a live interview with Matrons & Mistresses

Earlier this year, we connected with Lizzie Cheatham McNairy who is the founder of Matrons & Mistresses. M&M is a digital publication which speaks to the power of art to shift one’s perspective and touch one’s heart… a platform which shines light on the incredible women who shape the arts… and a community where there are far more questions than answers and people are encouraged to come as themselves. After hearing about and reading our latest book The Complete Smartist Guide, she was kind enough to invite us to do a live talk and interview with her about it. We’re so excited to have the opportunity to chat about this book together, which we have not done since it launched back in August!

If you’d like to join us next Thursday, July 15th at 7pm EST, please register for free here. Thanks and we look forward to connecting with you!
