{noteworthy} lessons from Alt Summit NYC

Last Thursday, I was honored to attend Alt Summit NYC at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia's headquarters in the Starrett-Lehigh Building with my talented, longtime friend Jen of Jen Kim Creative.  The day was incredibly inspiring with creative bloggers & entrepreneurs sharing their wisdom, including a few words from Martha Stewart!  My only regret is that I didn't get to meet & chat with every single one of my incredible fellow attendees.  But I did learn a lot & I'd like to share one juicy tidbit from each speaker.  From the practical to the light-hearted & everything in between, there is a lot of wisdom here!

"Always be learning, always be streamlining, always be teaching," Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge     

"Set a goal & you always know where you are going.  It clears a path," Kathleen King of Tate's Bake Shop

"Be present in your life," Stephanie Housley of Coral & Tusk

"Get out of your own way, don't let the business run you," Bob McClure of McClure Pickles

"Be inspired & know you are doing enough," Tracey Stewart of Moomah the Magazine

"Aspirational identity is always important: we can shape who we want to be," Keenan Cummings of Days

"Create an environment where anything is possible," Sarah Paul of Blue Q

"Superwomen died of exhaustion," Isabel Kallman of Alpha Mom

"Find value in your story," Jen Lee Koss of Brika

"What I need to do is lighten the f*ck up about a lot of sh*t," Valentine Freemen of Ace Hotel

"Branch out but stay on the same tree," Garance Dore of Garance Dore

It was hard to pick just one tidbit from each speaker because, trust me, everyone shared a wealth of information. Hopefully, my hand-selected quotes inspire you a bit.  Every tidbit easily applies to general life, work life, blog life, personal life & more.  Take each tidbit to heart!

(Full Alt Summit NYC recep, including photos & details of the party designed by Martha Stewart, is scheduled for mid-July when I return from vacation.  Stay tuned!)
