About this event

You’ve taken your vision and turned it into product or service. Now it’s time to sell your passion to the world. Whether you’re obsessed with skincare, yoga, health and wellness, or fashion, you need an online presence and selling strategy to help make that obsession a success. Join us at Showfields on Wednesday, February 15 for the first installment of our three-event series where Lindsay Albanese, inventor of TOPTOTE and founder of the fileist, shares her secrets for selling online and in person, and how to keep your business growing. Plus, there will be a learning session with GoDaddy’s Director of Internal Communications, Sara Schmidt, as well as networking, refreshments and appetizers. Boost your brand with the tools, talk, and support for every small business first.


Lindsay Albanese

Founder @ the fileist

After spending 17 years as a celebrity fashion and TV stylist, Lindsay took a chance in 2018 by self-funding her namesake company, Lindsay Albanese. She launched the business with her own invention, TOPTOTE, the U.S. patented hat holder that sold out at Nordstrom in-store and online less than two weeks after launch. Following the success of TOPTOTE and experiencing first-hand all that went into developing a new business venture, Lindsay realized there was a lack of support, resources, and community for ambitious female inventors like herself. So she founded the fileist, a marketplace and community for a new, upcoming generation of entrepreneurs and female inventors — who are changing the face of American products.

Sara Schmidt

Director, Internal Communications @ GoDaddy

Sara Schmidt is a director of internal communications at GoDaddy, where she leads product and strategy communications. Sara partners with GoDaddy product and engineering teams to drive employee advocacy for GoDaddy's products and experiences.
