Episode 10: ICONIC & UPLIFT

*Explicit! Adult language in this episode.*

On day 384 entrepreneurship, we're exploring the beauty & benefits of conferences. We've attended a gazillion in this first year, but we're focusing on a truly transformative retreat: Ali Brown's Iconic. We're also leading our own retreat for women in development: UPLIFT!

Big ideas:

* Your brain needs a retreat - get yourself to a conference! The best of them allow your mind to expand, your creativity to bloom & your body to relax in a glorious place.

* How can you get out of "customarily"? - put yourself in a room with high-achievers, big-thinkers & growth-seekers. Be around people who bring you massive energy. Make your own energy & ideas contagious.

* How can you own your space? - Be provocative. Make bold statements. Be unapologetically authentic. Repel those who aren't your people. Attract the ones who are.
