Last week was such an incredible, unforgettable experience!
Last week, I attended my 4th Rising Tide Society Leaders Retreat (you can see the past ones here – Charleston, San Francisco, & New Orleans.) In the past, I was an attendee but this time, I returned as a SPEAKER! Yay!! I had the chance to really pour into new leaders. I led the Tuesdays Together Green Bay group for three years and learned so much about how to lead with courage, grace, and love. This past week I shared how to cultivate a strong and thriving community by creating unforgettable in-person experiences. Making people feel valued, heard, and appreciated is one of my biggest goals in life. Because I truly believe every single person has a purpose and a gift to share with the world.
Thank you Rising Tide Society and HoneyBook for inviting me to speak and share with some amazing leaders. Big thanks to Showit, Visa, and CreativeLive for sponsoring such a powerful event. Of course, I have to thank the other incredible speakers; Arielle Estoria, Todd Watson, Chase Jarvis, LaShanta Green, and Laylee Emadi Smith who inspired us all. Thank you to an amazing team of vendors who helped make this event beautiful: Jessica Wonders Events (Planner), Paikka (Venue), Kemari Lyn Films (Videography), Surdyk’s Catering (Breakfast/Coffee), With A Twist (Bartending), Cotton & Whim (Cotton Candy), Time Into Pixels (Photo Booth), Masterpieces (Signs/Lettering), Austyn Elizabeth (Design), Champagne Press (Printing), & AsterWonders (Florals.)
Thank you to my dear friends, Natalie Franke and Kait Masters for their love and support during this entire week. Seriously, they both work so hard and give their all to everything they do. I love them both so much!
Biggest thanks to everyone who attended. They make this event so successful every year because they are dedicated to showing up and loving on their community. They truly are leaders in every sense of the word and I cannot wait to see what they do this year.
Thank you to the immensely talented Olivia Reed Photo for capturing this amazing event. Her talent allowed us all to sit back and take in the amazing content. We are so thankful for her!
