My first speaking engagement at SXSW

Monday, March 21, 2016

L-R : Nicole Garner Scott, Tammy Wyatt, Me, Gabrielle Delucas, Devi Dev & Tracy G
I've attended SXSW in Austin, TX for many years. I've been both as a music lover, a spectator as well as an event planner. This year I was a totally different experience as I was a Speaker. Yes, a speaker! I arrived into Austin on Wednesday evening in the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse. A sleek, spacious, easy riding vehicle.  I enjoyed the heated seats and the comfortable ride. I also loved that Anthony, could watch his movie on the overhead DVD screen and I could listen to my music.

The panel was scheduled for Friday, March 18th and I was a bit nervous. I always seem to get nervous than arrive and all nerves fly out the window.   The panel was created for all women in business with interests in entertainment and media. During the panel 5 women who have created and marketed successful brands within the entertainment industry spoke about our experiences as woman in the industry, the challenges we face and get through them. A special thanks to Gabbi from Business Rules for Women for adding me to the panel.

 I, myself gained a little more knowledge than  I walked in with. After the panel I met a beautiful young girl from Monterrey, which is in Nuevo Leon Mexico. We talked, I shared some ideas with her and how to grow as a blogger and she was the sweetest thing. We both teared up because she was inspired by me and I was inspired by her. She is taking the leap of faith and pursuing bigger opportunities. Saludos Amiga!

I totally wanted Torchy's and I stopped at the location that President Obama visited the week prior. The line was so long and the wait would have had me late to SX events therefore we drove off and ate elsewhere. But I got the pic! 

What I wore the first day was a black jersey dress that I've had in my closet for a while....I added a green vest jacket that I purchased at Macy's because I loved it and since it was raining a bit, it helped and looked cute.
