Mom 2.0 Report


I just returned on Sunday night from trip to Houston, Texas for the Mom 2.0 Summit.  Put on by the lovely ladies of Kirtsy and OpMom, it was a great event full to overflowing with information sharing & networking.

I brought my hubby and he was so awesome to hang out with me and a bunch of other marketing/ designing/ blogging women. Although the event was called "Mom 2.0" really the information presented was for everyone. We both really learned a lot. I plan on sharing a bunch of cool links and finds from the conference in upcoming posts. But for now-

Here are my top 3 takeaway lessons:

1.  Don't be ashamed of who you are and what you offer.  Guy Kawasaki mentioned that a lot of moms and other work-at-home types put a qualifier on their success or their opportunities. Be who you are and don't make apologies.
2.  Find your cupcake. Holly Buchanan reminded us that everyone is drawn to the dessert- the emotional connections we have with each other.  It's what makes life sweet. Find what your cupcake is and share it.
3. Create opportunities for yourself. The general feeling of the event was that there is opportunity out there- plenty to go around. Don't be afraid to ask for what you want. Make goals and set steps to achieve them.

I loved meeting new friends and getting to know others better. Thanks for the great event!
