I'm Speaking at Creative Mornings in Oakland!

UPDATE: Watch my speech below!

***Listen to my podcast about anxiety***

This Friday, Jan 26th I will be speaking about living with anxiety challenges and mental health for Creative Mornings. I HATE anxiety. Hate it. But my love for stopping mental health stigma by sharing my story is stronger. I'll also talk about facing our normal, everyday anxieties.

Registration opens this Monday at 11am. They go quick so make sure you sign up ASAP.

Dear Blogalicious,

Normally I adhere to the rule, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” But I couldn’t resist telling people about the amazing time I had at Blogalicious 2012 in Las Vegas.
Last year’s conference was my first. I was a bit nervous because I attended alone. But I’m so glad I took the risk. I was in a space that I identified with so much; a conference full of creative, passionate women with business dreams, who love social media and desire to learn more. I found myself among a group of people who work hard, but make time for fun too. I was in love.

Through Blogalicious I learned more about Google+ and branding.

I connected with a social media maven I’ve admired for a long time. 

I met the first black woman to win a Sundance award for best film director (and she follows me on Twitter).

I got a makeover...

...and some fashion inspiration (I still want that orange purse).

I made new friends and connections.

I danced so much at the Doug E. Fresh concert that my feet were swollen the next day. That has never happened to me before. It wasn't a cute moment so I'll spare you the visual of my feet. 

I had a great time and left with a lot of information. 

Stacey, Jazzy and the rest of the Blogalicious team do more than just organize a conference. They encourage us to pursue greatness. And they help make dreams come true. All of this has been accomplished in the first 5 years! At this rate, you’ve surpassed the sky’s limit. Blogalicous, you’re out of this world. And that is why we keep coming back.  Cheers to you!

Peace, Blessings & Continued Success,

Jenee Darden
