Well the same week that I went to that awesome Foodie event from LYFE Kitchen I ALSO was privileged to attend the Disney Social Media Moms “On the Road” Conference! Ok..I know I’m having waaay too much fun here!
This was a perfect Conference for me because it was only half a day long..but jam packed with awesomeness! This is a much more shortened version of the huge Disney Social Media Moms event that takes place in Orlando, Florida. How cool is it that they take the “show on the road” just for us Social Media Moms! Does that give you any indication of how valuable they see us Bloggers as part of their business plans and really as Women/Moms in general!
We started out with a deeelish breakfast catered by the Sheraton Hotel. Of course I have to mention that because I’m such a Foodie!
The Keynote Speaker was Mindee Doney, co-creator of Boogie Wipes® and CEO, Juicebox Idea Consulting. She totally ROCKED! She shared poignantly and honestly of how she climbed to the top of the Corporate world with Boogie Wipes…and then basically lost it all. But what she gained was far more valuable than Gold or Silver….
Mindee shared with us, how to avoid making the same mistakes she’s made in growing her business. Like not neglecting your family. Let’s face it..as Bloggers we can be..let’s say… just plain neglectful of our families sometimes.. we really have to be intentional about our time and our talents so that the MOST important things in our lives STAY the most important! Mindee shares how she was never not working…even when she was doing other things..her mind was still on working. Ummm can you relate to that..ouch! I have to say..I was convicted.
She also talked about how important it was for our children to see US following our dreams…and what a great example it is for them to follow their own dreams! Even if it’s unspoken. I’ve seen this in my teen son just since I’ve started blogging!
Mindee also talked about what a HUGE part in growing her business Bloggers played! We rocked it by getting out there and getting a product noticed and she sooo appreciated it! Don’t under estimate the power of your blogging business!
We also had an awesome panel of Speakers that we were able to ask questions to…Kathy Nelson owner of https://www.ovaleye.com/, Christi Sandvik owner of https://www.krisandkate.com/ , Suzanne Hansen owner of https://www.babysleepcoaching.com/ and Sari Crevin owner of www.booginhead.com.… Check out their websites!!
I love this saying and the encouragement we got as Professional Bloggers……
And along the way I got to meet some awesome Bloggers who are all on the same journey as I…sorry about the blur..I was holding my 4 month old Grandson! Yep it was totally acceptable to bring him! Yay!
Thank you Disney Social Media Moms “on the road” for coming to a town near me..because otherwise I would not have been able to go to your Rockin conference!
Oh and on the way home…well let’s just say..I couldn’t resist nibbling on Mickey’s Rice Krispy Chocolate covered ear
If you went to a Social Media Conference..What would you like to learn about? What would be your tip top priority questions?
