Hustle + Socialize Conference is for you!

+Of Minority Women Served

+ Conference attendees every year

YOU taking big bold action steps

Our Hustle + Socialize conference is designed to help minority women gain credibility, confidence, and connections so they can thrive in business and in life.

H+S helps women entrepreneurs who experience common barriers like access to capital & business education, imposter syndrome, confidence, and mindset, develop essential skills for business & personal growth.

Our H+S Conference is centered on our, “BUILD. PROTECT. TRANSFER™” framework.

N

BUILD: A key ingredient is laying down the foundations and building upon what you set. This is understanding your business foundations, operations, and how to market yourself & get those sales.

N

PROTECT: The most important asset, is Y-O-U. Here we focus on mental health, wellness, and mindset & confidence.

N

TRANSFER: it’s time to allow our impact and influence to flourish. Here we focus on community building & setting down the stepping stones to a lasting legacy and transferring our knowledge to the next generation to follow in our footsteps.

Hustle + Socialize is for you if…

N

You are a service-based business owner, product-based business owner, coach, and creator. Or, you want to launch a business in the next few months

N

You are in the 0-5 year mark in business & want laser-focused, no-fluff, business strategy, knowledge and expertise

N

You desire to establish & build meaningful relationships with other businesswomen that will turn into life-long friendships and business besties

N

You are tired of playing small and ready to overcome the fear and self-doubt that has been holding you back so you can unlock new opportunities and growth

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AT H+S

As always, when you join us at an H+S conference, you ​experience a POWERFUL day of Keynotes, panel conversations, fireside chats, value-packed breakout sessions, and interactive activities. You will have the opportunity to build relationships & connect with a community of Hustlers that will be your biggest champions and are ready to grow alongside you! Walk away with tangible takeaways from successful business leaders & champions of women in business from across Texas!

 

Lisa was ready to get outside of the box and invest in herself and her business

Lisa works in a male-dominated industry and wanted to connect with other women and grow her business. She knew she had to invest herself and made the decision to attend Hustle + Socialize. Read her experience below

“I wanted to connect with other businesswomen and get a better idea of how to grow my business. The things I took away from Hustle + Socialize were goal setting and enhancing my online presence. I also took away the importance of setting boundaries and giving value to your time, your work, and yourself. Saying more Nos. This was my first time attending Hustle + Socialize, and definitely not my last!”

The energy at H+S is ELECTRIC

The expert advice from a force of women curated by the Hustle + Socialize team was the explosive wealth of resources, advice, and tools I needed in one conference to build into the success of my business. I am thankful for the H+S community and the energy they bring to the women professionals looking to grow.

H+S Attendee

I loved seeing the community of badasses!

Hustle + Socialize made me feel less alone in the entrepreneurial sense! This conference superseded its reputation and is by far one of the best I’ve attended!

H+S Attendee

Will be recommending this conference to friends!

I’m feeling so inspired by women of color in my community. Taking away so many nuggets of truth, reminders that I’m on the right path, and tangible tools for growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hustle + Socialize Conference?

We began in 2018 as a best-friend team. Cofounded by Michelle Vallejo & Christina Olivarez from South Texas, the two were on a mission to create a brave space for empowering minority women in entrepreneurship and connect them to like-minded individuals and business development opportunities.

Today, Hustle + Socialize is led by CoFounder Christina Olivarez and has evolved into a go-to community where TEXAS women come together and experience business education and build meaningful connections through our annual conference, online programming & events throughout the year.
