Create + Cultivate Chicago

create and cultivate chicago

This past week I attended Create + Cultivate, a create conference for digital influencers & entrepreneurs, in Chicago. At the conference I had the pleasure of meeting some incredibly successful bloggers, business moguls, puppies (yup!), & so many others not to mention they had insanely good food (obviously very important to mention). Check out my photo diary below & shop the looks at the bottom of this post!

Also, as I was going through my notes & attempting to read all of my chicken scratch I realized there were some amazing points the panelists & mentors made that I wanted to share with you all.

1. “Winners are losers who got back up.” -Jodie Patterson, DooBop

2. “Act like someone who deserves to get paid [no matter where you are at in your career].”-Jessica Sturdy, Bows & Sequins

3. “You can’t do it yourself. DIT [do it together] is the new DIY [do it yourself].” -Erica Domesek, PS I Made This
