“Month of Me” post #03: Kicking it off a little early!

Officially, the #MonthofMe project is supposed to be the month of October but ….

I’ve decided to kick off the #MonthofMe a little early. I was invited to a conference called ShesConnected, which takes place on September 29th and 30th.

 

ShesConnected Conference

I was curious about this invite-only conference that aims to connect Canada’s “digital women” with brands, but the timing was terrible. For a number of reasons, not the least of which was the time I’d have to book off work and the cost of attending (the conference itself is free for the chosen digital women, but you still need to get yourself there and have a place to lay your head at night), I was going to reluctantly decline.

But then the agenda was released. Unlike many conferences which are a parade of successful men speakers, this one had some really fabulous women speakers lined up. These were women I’d really love to hear from.

So I was really sitting on the fence at this point. I could manage to squeeze it into my schedule, but it wouldn’t be easy — I’d need to start the drive up to Toronto early Thursday am and then do the drive back on Friday, arriving home late after the kids were already in bed. Before collapsing in bed, I’d need to unpack from Toronto, and pack up for New York City, since my girlfriend would be picking me up early Saturday am to make the long drive to the Big Apple together. Hectic, right?

I try to avoid hectic.

And yet, I’m going for sure now. Why, you ask? What pushed me off the fence?

Here’s what: a post-conference party is being held from 7 to 9 pm at Town Shoes on Bloor Street called “ShoesConnected”!

You know what I say to that? SOLD!
