ShesConnected 2012: Exceeded Expectations!

ShesConnected 2012 exceeded all of my expectations.

Not too hard to believe because...

I didn't have any.

It's not that I didn't have any idea about what was going to happen. In fact, I knew what I was going to be doing and where I would be from 10pm Thursday evening until Midnight on Saturday.

Thankfully, schedules were flexible enough to allow for tilting at windmills.

While I didn't have expectations, I definitely had goals.

-- Listen and learn from the Leaders in their industries.
-- Meet with Brands and share Journeys of The Zoo with them.
-- Make and develop lifelong friendships.

I was not disappointed.

Everyone was on equal playing fields.

No computer screens to hide behind.
No editing or delete buttons to push.

I could taste the vulnerability. Note that I might have cut my lip.

For the first time in three years, I traded my family's needs for mine.

Four whole days.
Which I know all too well that I can never have back.

I don't regret my choice. Not much point anyways.

I feel like I lived it.
Experienced all that I could.

Below are the only pictures that I took. I think that they pretty much sum up what I was thinking about and the true essence of what I wanted to share with all of you.

Stay tuned for more riveting content.
