I had the honor and privilege to be choosen as a speaker for the 2015 Women's Leadership Conference. This year the theme was empowHER which was something that spoke to me and my co-presenter the owner of the MouthingOff Blog Brianna Arps. During the conference we got to were able to present to a group of aspiring young women about Being Your Own Brand. in our presentation we talked about the core values behind what being a brand means. They were education, empower, ethics and excellence.
We decided that this was the perfect topic for us to talk about becasue we both have blogs that encompass who we are as individuals and our brand.
To be honest presenting at this conference was a huge step out of my comfort zone. I've had the opportunity to share my knowledge and passion with people. The most nerve wrecking thing was the fact that people that I didn't know were actually going to be listening to what I was saying and incorporating it into building their own brands.
I'm so thankful to have Brianna in my life because if it wasn't for her I don't think I would've been able to put n entire presentation that really sparked people's interest and inspired them to go above and beyond to actually go for their dreams.
Here's my lesson learned from the women's Leadership Conference
1) It's an amazing feeling to step out of your comfort zone
2) People really do listen to you
3) We all want to do amazing things in our life but we need the support of the women and men around us to get there. You don't have to do it alone.
