I’m back with a summary for Day 2 of Spark Sessions! Click here if you want to read about my Day 1!
For Day 2, I decided to wear a medium grey midi dress with zipper embellishments on the side, black tights, and black booties. I didn’t grab a blazer before I zipped out of the house because I didn’t think I would need one. I was very cold in the venue on Day 2. You live, you learn!
The closing keynote speaker the Spark Sessions got in was Cheryl Hickey from ET Canada. Her speech was inspiring and about stepping outside of your comfort zone and doing things that you love and believe in. It made me feel very warm and fuzzy being in the same room as her speaking because you can sense the ingenuity and positive energy from her. She made me feel like I could move mountains!
- Be an entrepreneur. Think like one, make like one, and your ideas will soar further than you could’ve imagined.
- Be authentic. People want to know you–not what you think they want to know. They want to know your thoughts, your ideas, your personality.
- Quantity is great, but it’s not the be-all end-all of everything. Quality posts is where it’s at. Take your time to compile your information, take great photos, and put your passion to paper (or website) and create some great content.
- Google+ and Pinterest are not the red-headed step-children of social media. They can actually be very helpful in getting yourself out there and networking.
I hope you guys enjoyed my wrap-up of Spark Sessions. If you didn’t get to go to the conference for whatever reason, you should definitely clear your calendar for the weekend they choose next year and attend. It’s wonderful to get so many like-minded people in the same venue and bounce ideas off one another. It felt like a true community. That’s what your fellow bloggers are–your community. Your network. And it’s more than just a business card transaction at the end of the day. It’s a sense of sister(or brother)hood that you feel included in.
I am done with the mushy gushy feels! Please let me know what you thought of Spark Sessions if you attended! Stay beautiful, everyone! xoxo
