Hello everyone!

I’ve been back from SassyCon for a week now, and I wanted to write about my experience. First, I wish SassyCon were everyday, because the friends I have made through The Socialite Suite and #allthesuitegroups are amazing. I thoroughly and completely believe in Brenda and her team, and the Suite way. I know it’s not easy to build a business this way. It takes time and effort but it’s worth it.

I knew about last year’s inaugural SassyCon, but couldn’t make it work. I’ve been in a funk/slump lately, and just knew I had to be at SassyCon this year. Greg helped this year, but I’m putting it in the universe: next year, I WILL finance everything myself! 

I needed the weekend away so badly. I have a stressful full time job, I’m frustrated by everything lately, and my business has suffered. SassyCon refilled my bucket, recharged my batteries, and has given me a renewed sense of purpose. My word that I chose this year is Believe, but Hope is very important to me, and I think Brave is actually the word I should have chosen…I may choose to focus on Brave and Believe for the rest of this year. I stamped a bracelet with Brave at SassyCon, because I need to be more like the amazing women I spent the weekend with at the conference.

What is SassyCon?

In a nutshell, a conference aimed toward social media marketing for direct sellers. More importantly for me, I spent the weekend surrounded by bad ass and inspiring women. I cried more than I have probably all year, but the catharsis was welcome and needed. Where else can you go and find a community (especially of all women…and Cody) who have each other’s backs and are rooting for everyone no matter what company that person is with?

Where else can you see someone (I’m looking at you, Carol) overcome so much and WALK, when that wasn’t even an option that was possible last year? This conference was so very needed, for my mind and my soul.

What did I learn?

I didn’t have the major light bulbs I was hoping for. SassyCon reinforced the knowledge that I have the tools I need to succeed, and the drive. I need to “just fucking do it” as Francesca would say. No more excuses. I’m tired of being in my own way! I need to both stay in my own lane and get out of my own way, as Brenda tells us all the time.

To the friends I’ve been talking to for so long who lived in my phone/computer until 2 weekends ago, thank you. I was worried about walking into a hotel full of strangers, but it was like coming home and seeing friends who you just haven’t seen in a while. To all the new people I met and connected with, thank you. I needed all of the interactions I had at SassyCon, and I’m sorry to anyone I didn’t get to speak with in person. Next year, for sure.

Talk to you soon,

Jamie

P.S. The links in this post are not *my* links. The Socialite Suite is an amazing group for anyone in direct sales or who is an entrepreneur. Carol and Francesca are two of the amazing and inspiring women I’ve met through this group, and I consider them some of my best friends and wanted to show them some love. 

Ride or Die
Ride or Die/Soul Sisters

I'm a 30-something geek/nerd just trying to make it in life. My current obsessions are the Queer Eye reboot, Doctor Who, Outlander, and American Gods to name a few. I also love hearts, stars, elephants, sushi, makeup, and self care. I’m a big believer in human rights and I’m a pitbull advocate as well. I love to read, and you will often find me in a nook with a good book, or watching a Disney movie (preferably from the late 80s/early 90s). When the local renaissance faire rolls around, you can find me there visiting my guy and our friends. I live with my boyfriend of 6 years, our cat Pippin (a 10 year old pure-bred Blue Point Ragdoll) and our rescued pitbull mix (American Staffordshire Terrier/Boxer) Celia Mae. I entered the realm of direct sales with Jamberry, and was a consultant for almost 2 years before finding Java Momma and Younique. I firmly believe in supporting other DS sisters. My favorites are Paisley Raye, LipSense, Younique, Origami Owl, and Perfectly Posh. Life is crazy, hectic, sometimes overwhelming, but so rewarding!!
