I want to thank Yvette Luciano for allowing her chief entity Soulpreneurs to put on this conference. It has allowed me to connect with so many women who I love. Some I have only connected with online or met a few times. It feels so good to find my Soulpreneurs and be surrounded by them. Today we started with Denise Duffield Thomas on mindset and money. She got us up and saying ‘This is what a wealthy woman looks like’. She reminded us all ‘Why not me?’. Also that rich women will change the world. We then delved into social media and how it feels for all of us. There was a great panel including Kate from Betty Means Business and Rachael Macdonald from Inspaces Between. The main message was to be vulnerable and show up through live video if you can. Go in your own lane and rock the social media that feels good for you.
The next speaker was Carren Smith who is the author of Soul Survivor. Carren lost her partner to suicide then a year later almost died in the Bali Bombing of 2002. She was then catapulted from a deep depression to turning her life into some kind of meaning. She started sharing her story and now she is a professional speaker and author who inspires thousands of people. I am looking forward to reading her book. Finally Yvette closed out the day with my gorgeous friend Jade Mackenzie. We wrote down all the things that we needed to do in the next week. Riding high from the conference we wanted to make sure we put some of that energy into action. Jade is a beautiful soul and she is head of the event head which organised this event. I am so grateful to have so many amazing women in my life. I had some heartfelt chats with some amazing souls after the event. One of them was Tara Bliss whom I have met a few times. She wrote a heartfelt blog series after suffering two miscarriages. Reading her blog after my own loss of Hamish really helped. It was nice to give her a hug and let her know how much her words helped me. I spent the afternoon in tears on and off. They were tears of happiness and also of acknowledgement of how far I have come in five months. After the conference finished we went out for cocktails. What was going to be an early night ended at 3:30am on a dance floor at a club in Brisbane. I haven’t danced like that in a long time. I felt so free. I felt so peaceful and like my heart had become lighter.
Thank you Hamish for surrounding me with so much love always.
