Influence Conference was everything I'd hoped it would be. I met some amazing women who share in very similar passions and believe in the beauty/influence of the blog community. I had a fabulous conference partner - my darling cousin, Kinsey - whom I was able to develop a deeper connection with.
After 2 days of life + strategy sessions, I came home feeling a new commitment and responsibility to EOS. This experience has definitely stretched me and I'm on this funny blogger's high that will hopefully reside permanently in my life.
I can't help but share some highlighted quotes and thoughts recorded from the weekend. If you're a blogger, I hope to bring some inspiration to you. If not, may this be a little insight into my heart as a blogger.
