A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend my very first BlogHer conference. I can’t even begin to tell you just how incredible it was to attend #BlogHer17. 2,300+ women (and men) content creators, celebrities, philanthropists, activists, CEO’s, founders, authors, you name it…they were there. Let me just say the inspiration, motivation, empowerment was real, ya’ll. But, instead of going on and on about my experience I wanted to share some of my take aways. Now, if you know me, you know I am a sticky note sticking, journal jotter downer, iPhone note taking, quote loving queen. I LOVE a good quote, so naturally my BlogHer notes are all full of quotables. So, whether you’re a blogger, business owner, or basically anyone that has breath in their body and you’re looking for a little inspo, or Monday
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday motivation, here ya go!
