It's that time of year again! Back-to-school shopping is done, the last trip to the beach has been planned, and I've bought my annual ticket to Boston for HubSpot's INBOUND 2018. INBOUND 2018 will be my fourth trip to this conference and it still amazes me the growth it has seen since my first visit in 2014. As I'm getting prepared for my week in Boston, I, like most, reflect on what I did the previous years that I don't want to do again (stay out too late!) or want to make sure I do again.
My last thought before walking out on the IMPACT Live stage was, "[INSERT INAPPROPRIATE WORD], I don't want to do this!" And then my fellow teammate, Dan Baum told me it was too late for that and guided me on stage where our CEO, Bob had just called my name and hundreds of people were waiting for me to speak. This is the story of everything that led up to that moment...
I didn't know how bad it was until I realized how good it could be. Three months ago, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease -- a thyroid disease that causes hypothyroidism, meaning my body doesn't produce enough of certain very important hormones.
Guess who's back!?! If you guessed MarketHer, then you're right! After a short hiatus at the close of Season 1, Angela, Brie, and I are back for Season 2 and we should come with a warning! Between end-of-school activities, vacations (one to Colombia!), setting up a farm business, and brand new jobs (still at IMPACT) for the three of us, we needed time to focus on all the amazing things happening around us!
High-performing marketers. Every company wants to hire them and every marketer wants that beautiful hyphenated distinction. But, honestly, what is a high-performing marketer/employee and are they really more valuable than others? (Note: I’ll be talking about this even more at IMPACT Live.) The first time I really considered what a high-performing employee meant I thought it was a redundant statement.
Guys! I love co-hosting MarketHer for a myriad of reasons, some of which Brie shared during in this article, but my favorite episodes are the ones when I barely speak because I'm learning so much from our guest or Ang and Brie. This is one of those episodes!
Have you ever read a book, listened to an interview, or a watched a video that spoke so directly to your life that it was almost scary? It happened to me this weekend and I can't wait to share more about with you!
Hi, my name is Britt Schwartz and I am an Accidental Diminisher. The good news it that while I tend to display diminisher behavior, I am not a raging tyrant of a boss. 'How is that good news,' you ask? It means my behavior, while unbecoming at times, is fixable. Let's celebrate that for a moment. I want to jump into a monologue of how well-intended I am, that I really mean no harm, that it hurts to hear that I do this -- but, I won't. Because it really doesn't matter. What matters are actions; behaviors.
