Now I've been to many a conference in my time - but this was different! Think blow dry bars, make up counters as well as everything from jewellery to insurance to law firms. So many amazing women showcasing their businesses. Oh and the food - did I mention the delicious mexican street food we had for lunch?
Aside from all the expo fun, a number of completely amazing women presented their stories - including Michelle Bridges, Jules Sebastian, Shaynna Blaze and (my not so secret girl crush) Zoe Foster-Blake.
These women were inspirational, brave and honest in sharing their stories about life, love and how they realised their dreams. Every one of those women had a captivated audience on the edge of their seats, while we listened to the different paths they took to make their businesses succeed.
Aside from the pure pleasure of seeing so many women supporting each other (and the total girl crush moment of being in the same room as Zoe!), it made me realise how lucky I am to share Bag Trader with you.
You're a big part of making my own dreams come true - thank you!
