Posted @withrepost • @emthedesigner "Inspiring Women in Atlantic Canada: Not a supply problem." . One of my favourite slides from all of the @blogjamatlantic talks. @vanessapaesani was the morning keynote speaker and told us her story on why she felt the need to create the incredible project, @amplifyeast . Her website puts the spotlight on inspiring women, right here in Atlantic Canada and shares their stories. She's already featured some amazing people (like my own naturopathic doctor @drglennacalder) and has created a perfect way to highlight the great things they're doing and encourage others to take their own action. . Nominate someone who you think should be featured! I know I have a long list of people I can nominate right here on Cape Breton Island alone! . #amplifyeast#notasupplyproblem#womenleaders#atlanticcanada#BlogJam2018#eastcoastwomen
And we are SO happy that you did!!! Posted @withrepost • @bitofmomsense When I accepted my invitation to speak at @blogjamatlantic this year, my friends kept asking me if I was ok leading up to the event. It wasn’t because they didn’t think I could do it or were surprised that I applied. It’s because speaking at #blogjam2018 meant a strange balancing act for travel. Because I was also attending @blissdomcanada, it meant taking the train from #ottawa to #toronto on the Thursday, flying from Toronto to #moncton on Friday. Speaking on Saturday. Then flying home Sunday. That’s no small plan. But this year was one of bravery for me - I had committed to putting myself out there more. Speaking and being present/in person at events was part of the plan. Pushing through my fears was another. Being an anxious person (who hates flying) and being someone who doubts herself more than she should, this also meant a mindset shift. I did it. I made the whirlwind weekend happen. I spoke. I introduced myself to new people. I put myself out there.

This was some excellent @blogjamatlantic swag I got last weekend and just had a chance to use it tonight.
