I drove up to LA (on my own) on a Friday morning at 4:30 am not knowing what to expect upon my arrival, all I knew was that I could count on this conference having a nurturing atmosphere, after all, the name said it all "when one of us grow, We All Grow" and so it had that... and much more.
As soon as I got there I saw familiar faces and it was like we all knew each other for years! Everyone was so welcoming and thriving with excitement (plus it didn't hurt that Beyonce had eaten dinner at the same location the night before).
The conference had panels of amazing women, sponsors, and companies that connected with us by sharing their success stories and tips. There were also some great sponsor suites sprinkled inside the LINE hotel. One of my favorites was the Neutrogena suite where we were treated to a glam session- facial, make up and hair, oh my! Pictures below! The newest spokesmodel for Neutrogena, the gorgeous Eiza Gonzales was also there!
I really appreciated how open Sponsors were with us, telling us what they value about bloggers especially when they sign them on for campaigns. On top of their list: authenticity, having an engaged audience that trusts you and even simple professionalism (being on time, meeting deadlines).
My only regrets… that I didn't do the whole 4 days!!
#WeAllGrow will be back next year, make sure to buy your tickets when they come out!
