Whoa. Uh, Altitude Summit was a whirlwind to say the least. Things started off a little shaky for me, but couldn't have ended any better. As in, I will be back next year!
One of my biggest weaknesses is a lack of confidence. I have to suck it up and just put myself out there. We heard multiple amazing people speak from all over the country, and world for that matter. Ben Silberman, of Pinterest, was my favorite keynote speaker. He is super genuine. Elle from Elle Keeps Moving pretty much sums up my feelings.
I felt like I was back in college. Just a lot older, and cuter. haha
What I learned:
- Meeting new people is overwhelming. You don't have to talk to everybody. Just pick a seat and introduce yourself to the person sitting next to you. The more people you introduce yourself to the easier it gets.
- I find lots of comfort in food. During our first lunch, the chicken pot pie warmed my soul. I didn't want lunch to end.
- Bring a big suitcase even if it's only half full. You might just have it filled up for your trip home.
- Outfit choices may or may not be a big deal to you. Just be sure you feel confident in what you are wearing. Sometimes my clothes make me feel less so, and you need all the confidence you can get when you are at a conference.
- Bring business cards. Or as I like to call them "Me Cards." Oh, and make sure they are awesome. You are handing them out the coolest of the cool. You want them to make a good impression and not end up in the recycle pile before the conference is over.
I came home feeling exhausted (the good kind) and ready to tackle some new projects. Hope you are ready for awesomeness!
Oh, check out this post too. You might just see a cameo from yours truly.
