Unconferencing the World Domination Summit

For the past three days in Portland, my town was filled with World Domination Summit (WDS) attendees. Many of my favorite online people travel to Portland for the conference and I visited with as many of them as I could in between their events. (It turns out there was a name for what I was doing, "unconferencing" and there was even a hashtag #unwds going all weekend for it.) pink flowers sunshine downtown Portland OR photographer Jessica Nichols

Let yourself shine, even if you don't always feel shiny inside! That's what I did!

I went to the Soul Shine Studio Open House. I went to The Declaration of You book party to support my friend and former coach Michelle Ward and my local namesake Jessica Swift. Today is my last event, a luncheon with my soul sisters from Hello Soul, Hello Business last year. I went to two meet-ups and met many very interesting people. I pushed myself way out of my comfort zone and I am beyond proud of my introverted self for her bravery.

I am also thrilled to announce that Michelle and Jess have asked me to contribute a post this week for the BlogLovin' Tour for The Declaration of You for Success Week. My post will be live on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 right here. I am in stellar company this week with Kelly Rae Roberts and Jennifer Lee, two women I admire and respect and I have even been their students. I have been reading my signed (with love) copy of the book and it's beautiful, colorful and heartening. I highly recommend it! They have a Vimeo channel which I have been thoroughly enjoying!

See you here on Wednesday to talk about success!
