Just.Be.Enough. is proud to be a media partner of the Type-A Parent Conference. So instead of sharing the voice of a special guest poster today is about morsels of information from the bright lights at the conference.
The opening keynote featured Chris Garrett. Apart from his fabulous British accent, Chris told a story related to his experience in blogging, consulting, and speaking. His nuggets of wisdom were focused on social media, but as I listened, his story speaks to why Just.Be.Enough. was created and why I am so very passionate about it.
My favorites are:
“If you don’t push your comfort zone, your comfort zone will get smaller.”
“Friends that you make are like boulders. don’t dismiss anybody. Be present. You never know what you might learn from someone.”
“Think about your fears. Think about the why behind not doing things. And then do them.”
“Learn from your mistakes. Make progress rather than perfection”
In the end, whether it is in the social media space or in our personal lives, life is about living, connecting, challenging, and connecting.
The conference is just beginning…what questions do you have about trends in social media?? Leave your questions in the comments, and I will do my best to get your questions answered by industry experts.
