Happy Monday, welcome back from my crazy last week. (i took a week off to much stuff going on). Last weekend i went to Go Blog Social X Chicago! I had a crazy crazy weekend in Chicago (i almost didn’t make it home). I am just finishing up a huge paper about my trip to Kansas City. I am going to point out a few key things i learned from our speakers (ps i love the EVERY GIRL speakers!)
- Alison Ray of Sassy Moms in The City– i love here! I met her last year (on my first blogger brunch). She had a lot of great thing to say. One key point she really discussed was “YOU CREATE YOUR OWN OPPORTUNITIES”. I have always been a firm believer in this. My life motto is you want it you MAKE IT HAPPEN. It was pretty amazing to here it come from someone who has been in the blogging industry to a long time.
- Farrisa Knox of What R U Wearing – created a stellar presentation called Boss Period. She talked a lot about where she came from. Explained to us how she handles employees, and her business . One thing i took away from her stories is not only to be a #GIRLBOSS but to be a Boss of your own destiny! Also to reach out and do things Outside of your comfort zone.
- Daniel Moss of The Every Girl– I loved the Every Girl ( I admitt I’m not an average reader of that website, but i have read it before and enjoyed it) I got to hear the story about How the Every Girl got started. The stories that came along from this little site were amazing. One thing i really took away from this was to just Be “True and Authentic”. I loved hearing about the story how a little website grew and grew!
- It was really nice to connect with others offline. To visit with old friends or to meet new friends. Its really important to know where ever you are in your journey in blogging or a business is that we have all been there one time or another.
I feel super wonderful to have the chance to be able to travel and meet with others. It helps me to be passionate and remember why i started this in the first place. I want to thank Go Blog Social and All the Sponsors that worked with us during the event.
have a wonderful Monday.
