I have the honor of speaking at KalamazooX for the second year in a row! Raw and uncensored, it is my favorite conference of the year. This exclusive conference is invite-only and rarely invites speakers back for a second year in a row, so you can imagine my surprise when I received the call!

“My favorite part of #KalX16: Not the talks. It’s looking at the faces that are giddy, smiling, and all-in, completely engaged.”
“The one conference where it’s surprising if you *don’t* cry. Jesus #kalx16 @kalamazoox”
“Pretty into the strong pro-profanity vibe at @kalamazoox #kalx16”
“How is it that every @kalamazoox seems to speak to what I need to hear right now. #kalx16”
“I just laughed at #kalx16 because the current speaker is taking about my life & I nervously related. I feel so inappropriate 😦 @osmihelp”
“If you don’t cry during @kalamazoox you’re doing it wrong #kalx16”
“Have anxieties about crying in public? Attend #kalx17 and we’ll get through it together. #kalx16″
I recorded a bit of the audio from my talk. You may listen to the first ten minutes here. When I think about how low I felt at the time of this recording and how far I have come in business and in my personal life in just one year... well, let's just say I am feeling like a luckygirl!
