Top Ten Things I Learned at BlogHer - Day 1

3 comments
I officially have the first day of the mega BlogHer conference under my belt. I must admit, I was slightly intimidated as a newbie. But any apprehension quickly evaporated as soon as the opening session began.

Rather than providing a blow-by-blow of all the geeky blogger details, I thought the best way to share my experience might be in the form of a BadAssMama Top Ten List. So, here we go:

10. Make your imperfections your signature. In a world that often values fitting in above individuality, it is your duty to be uniquely who you are. When you are ok with who you are, you let others know that they are ok too.

9. Don't be afraid to stand out. Every flock starts with one bird. Have the courage to be a leader.

8. There is one sure-fire way to face your fear: Name it, claim it and kick it in the ass.

7. We cannot create from negativity and lack. Take inventory of how awesome you are on a
regular basis. Focus on what you do well and use your energy to build on that, rather than
dwelling upon your deficiencies.

6. Be incredibly specific about what you want. No one can read your mind.

5. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

4. Courage is not the absence of fear, but being afraid and moving forward anyway.

3. You don't have to be the best to be worthy.

2. As women, we too often play games to diminish our light. Don't.

1. Relationships are the foundation of every success.
