Oh man, totally spaced on telling ya’ll about the Create and Cultivate conference that I attended last week in L.A..
To say this is THE conference to attend if you are a creative diva is much too modest.
Way too cool for school. If you have a chance to attend one of these, do it.
Better yet, make your chance, you need this ladies.
Key speakers included;
P.S. if you don’t happen to know about these women, google them. They are amazing.
So much determination and such role models for women.
Identify your value.
Working and parenting.
Role of social media.
Women mentoring women.
Some of the best advice from this weekend;
Don’t should on yourself.
Be persistent. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Don’t skimp on talent. Hire great people.
You’ve got to grind. It ain’t easy living your best life.
Stick to your brand..know why you are doing it, stay focused, and stay the course.
Create relationships. Tell your story and connect with people.
For every yes, there will be a hundred no’s.
Surround yourself with people who “get it”. Don’t compromise.
Hone in on your “secret sauce”. No one exactly like you. Be you.
Never talk shit. Always take the high ground.
Every girl is a girl’s girl. Reach back and help a sista.
Women need to mentor women.
Be direct, don’t bullshit. You don’t have to get people to like you.
Just show up.
We owe it to each other to be girlfriends.
Be kind, don’t be judgy.
Be loud. Be honest. Be bold.
Stop listening to the negatives.
Shut up…you’re fucking amazing.
Extra big shout out to my mentors.
You ladies rock!
Thank you L.A.
It was great to be back home for the weekend.
Line Hotel…well worth a stay.
Go out and make it happen…we’ve only got this one big life.
Live it your way. Drop the mic.
