Oh my goodness, I'm still on a high from the awesome that was Pivot Boston last night! It was a huge amount of work putting together this two hour event but it was so gratifying! We sold out, our waitlist was overflowing, the positive energy was buzzing like crazy, people were asking about another event (I do, in fact, have an idea for a second Pivot...), and there were just so many incredible attendees, spanning a wide range of ages, interests, and backgrounds. Having made a big career pivot myself, it was moving to see so many people seeking passion in life. Yay!
Now, it goes without saying that this event couldn't have happened without help. This was a volunteer effort; a passion project by me and my co-hosts Morra, Whitney, and Roxanna. Our amazing assistant Kaitlyn and a couple of other fine helpers were invaluable. And then there are our sponsors. I wanted to take a moment to call them out. Because they are awesome and also took a gamble and supported us on this first-ever venture.
Thank you to:
And of course I was honored to be a speaker and was truly inspired to hear about the pivots made by Heather Coughlin, Karen Rubin, Roxanna Sarmiento, Leslie Graff, and Whitney Johnson -- who, by the way, was amazing in facilitating networking after the close of the program.
Seriously, I'm still on a high from this event. Just go check out the #PivotBoston hashtag and you'll see why. Meanwhile, I wanted to keep the Pivot Boston love going. I have an extra goodie bag from last night and want to give it away to one of you fabulous readers. See below to enter to win (also, for another chance to win, hop on over to Roxanna's site)!
