Monday Motivation | NJ Brand Photographer + Mentor

Simply Stylist conference in NYC.

Monday's are tough! We're still in weekend mode but our list is long with things to do. Let's help each other make the transition a little bit easier. Every Monday, I will share a tip or trick I use to help me ease into the week. Hope it inspires you to take action and jumpstart into your day. 

Today's Monday Motivation is about attending LIVE events. I encourage you to leave your corner of the world and mingle offline with real people. There is so much to be gained by attending conferences or networking events. Not only do you learn more about your industry or hear directly from prospects about their needs and challenges, but you also can build relationships. You have the opportunity to connect and create real face to face relationships with real people. 

I think it is easy to hide behind our computers and converse through the keyboard. And sure, there is much success to be found online.  But, I am a strong believer in the old fashioned face time and in person networking. That is where you can build your brand, your tribe, your message, your word of mouth. That is where you can FEEL the energy in the room. That is where you can find like minded individuals who share your passion and purpose. That is where you can find collaborations and partners. 

 I just attended Simply Stylist this past weekend in NYC (recap coming soon on the blog) and am still reeling from all the inspiration and learnings from the day. I met so many interesting people. I got to see and hear from the leading fashion bloggers. It was a great day!

So go out there and get social! What's on your list of conferences or events to attend?
