The ShesConnected 2012 Blogging Conference exceeded all of my expectations.
Not too hard to believe because…
I didn’t have any.
It’s not that I didn’t have any idea about what was going to happen. In fact, I knew what I was going to be doing and where I would be from 10pm Thursday evening until Midnight on Saturday.
Thankfully, schedules were flexible enough to allow for tilting at windmills.
While I didn’t have expectations, I definitely had goals.
— Listen and learn from the Leaders in their industries.
— Meet with Brands and share Journeys of The Zoo with them.
— Make and develop lifelong friendships.
I was not disappointed.
Everyone was on equal playing fields.
No computer screens to hide behind.
No editing or delete buttons to push.
I could taste the vulnerability. Note that I might have cut my lip.
For the first time in three years, I traded my family’s needs for mine.
Four whole days.
Which I know all too well that I can never have back.
I don’t regret my choice. Not much point anyways.
I feel like I lived it.
Experienced all that I could.
Below are the only pictures that I took. I think that they pretty much sum up what I was thinking about and the true essence of what I wanted to share with all of you.
