As promised, our Social Media intern Beck will share her thoughts on the IFB conference. Take it away Beck!
Each year IFB holds a conference that brings together some of the most successful people in the fashion industry and the bloggers who write about fashion. It’s a two day event and as the lucky Flightpath intern I had the pleasure of attending the second day of the event!
This panel focused on turning your blog into a business. Some of the key points were:
- Be ok with risk
- Surround yourself with people who are passionate about the same thing you are
- Challenge yourself daily
Conferences can be fun too with everyday tips. Samantha Brown from Style to Hire showed us which pieces of clothing are essential to a complete closet!
Bloggers and writers tackled the topic of Bringing Bravery Back to Blogging. A few things they highlighted were:
- Blog like no one is watching
- Be aware that once you put yourself out there, there will be negative feedback and that’s okay
- Find fuel in the hate comments, don’t let them bring you down
I had the pleasure of meeting Iman! She is not only a gorgeous model
but a successful entrepreneur. Such an inspiration.
That concludes our adventures at the bigger, better and bolder IFB conferences. Next up is Lucky Magazine‘s LuckyFABB.
