For my birthday this year, I wanted one thing and one thing only – A ticket to the Create and Cultivate conference. One of the BEST gifts ever! Create and Cultivate, an amazing brand focused solely on empowering young women to build the career of their dreams, puts on an annual conference that can only be described by the heart eyed emoji face. The line-up is consistently amazing, the locations are dreamy, and the decor is pretty much your Pinterest boards come to life.
My mom and I have always had a bit of entrepreneurial spirit and it is only growing. She has just about the most creativity and drive of anyone I’ve ever met and she has definitely been my inspiration for goal to own my own creative business! A trip to create and cultivate is like a ticket straight into some of the most incredible entrepreneurs in the country’s brains.
We snagged 2 VIP tickets to the event and booked our flights to Atlanta. We didn’t stay at the hotel suggested by C&C but ended up at an awesome hotel just steps away from mall heaven and the Friday night pre-party at Lennox Mall in Buckhead.
Who we loved:
I didn’t recognize her full name right away but the little printed words “Sugar & Cloth” under her name I definitely recognized. This blog has a been on my must read list for a while now. Add it to yours. You’ll love it, pinky promise. There’s this thing some people do when they get up to talk in front of an audience where they completely turn into someone else and put on a show. Ashley was the COMPLETE opposite of this. She kept it so REAL.
The event was held in building lacking some curb appeal, but let me tell you – The second you walked through those doors, it was a different story. The venue was gorgeous!
What we learned:
The future is female! That is no joke. The amount of powerful motivated women we met at this conference was absolutely amazing. You could feel the inspiration in the air the second you walked into the building. We breathed it in all day and left feeling more ready than ever to start something we could call our own. We may not know what yet, but something’s just around the corner and this conference proved that!
The next one is in NYC! Snag your ticket!!
