Last week I was at Alt Summit and this quote has never rung more true. While talking with the fellow attendees and learning about their work, it felt like entire new worlds were discovered. These women and men ranged from those who are just starting their journey to those who’ve had quite the adventure – some spanning over 13 years! – in building their online communities while furthering their talent. Each session and event reminded me the importance of building a community filled with honest encouragement and feedback, what it means to possess true courage, and mistakes and change are paramount for growth in the creative field. I’ll share more later but at this time I’m still processing everything as well as sorting out a few “what if” moments.
Have you attended a conference or training that you felt like there was just a lot to take in and process? How did you go about it? Did you create a list of all those brainstorm moments – no matter how big or small the idea? Please share below! I feel a bit like I jumped into the middle of a big lake and it’s a long swim back to shore.
Come hang out with this lil’ bird!

I am just so glad you are my new friend!
Lovely meeting you, Alexis! I wished we lived closer to each other. xo

Yes! I know exactly what you mean! Like you are swimming in my brain (quite scary) right now. I process by just looking inward and talking with friends who knew what my journey has been like in order to make sense of my thoughts/ feelings. But I completely understand having that exciting but confusing buzz in your head – so many directions, where must I go next? Always going back to what my values and goals are helps me get back to shore. I am so so so glad you and I met and that we became fast friends. We are in this together!
Good points (and had to giggle about being in your brain). I’m hoping the similar thinking is a sign that we’re all in the same boat (figured I’d keep water-related imagery rolling). xo
