I know this post is late, my summer has been crazy! That’s the life of a work at home Mom when the kids are off school, finding the balance. I was invited for the second year in a row to attend Disney Social Media Mom’s On The Road Celebration. This year’s event was held in King of Prussia PA (a Philly suburb), and was by far the best one I have attended. I really think they took the feedback from last years conference and just blew it out of the water.
When you put together some of my favorite things in one room that is a good conference. Disney,Blogging,Networking and Gary! This year we had the pleasure of meeting a few other Disney Social Media superstars including Jamie Langdon, PR and Social Media Director at Walt Disney World Resort and Jenn Fickley-Baker, Walt Disney World Social Media Manager. What a breath of fresh air to hear from them, so much goes into Disney Social Media and Marketing it’s amazing. Just getting a little taste of what goes into social media at Disney made me think I really need to up my game!
We were told to Rock Our Disney Side for this year’s conference, I channeled my inner Snow White by Disney Bounding. There are many way’s to Rock Your Disney Side. What is your favorite way?
I am so grateful for Maria Bailey because she is the Mom behind the madness as far as putting together the business side of the Conference. If you don’t know already Maria is the CEO and Founder of BSM Media, otherwise known as MOM TV, Mom Talk Radio and Mom Select. She gives Mom’s a voice especially Mom’s who run their own business. We also heard from other mom-preneurs as we are often called, and they brought home the message that it’s not easy but we can “have it all”.
I have 5 takeaway’s from this years Conference I want to share, especially for those Moms that think they can’t “have it all”.
1. You are a walking talking billboard for your brand 24/7
2. Push past those limits you are comfortable with and go beyond the comfort zone, it’s amazing what is on the other side
3. There is never really a balance between work and motherhood, you just have to find the right balance for YOU
4. Find stability and set boundaries, you can run your own business and be a mom/wife/friend without neglecting them
5. BURST past those limiting beliefs and show YOURSELF that you can do more
This years On the Road Conference was great, we heard from Social Media Experts, Mom’s and a Life Coach all showing us how to make our brand work best for us. I know that the information I took away has been invaluable in helping build my brand and my blog. I am thankful I got to be a part of the event!
