Creator's Block #42 [Podcast]: 2 Exhausted Creatives Recap #INBOUND17

Design | Creator's Block

Jessie-Lee and I are back this week, fresh off HubSpot's #INBOUND17 conference in Boston. We spent three full days with 21,400+ of our closest friends in the INBOUND community, learning and getting inspired -- so needless to say, we're a little tuckered.

But we're not too tired to talk about our biggest takeaways.

Prior to this year, Jessie-Lee and I had both been to INBOUND more than a handful of times as part of the Quintain team -- this year, however, was distinctly different.

Not only was the tone of this year's conference a departure from previous years, we were there as new members of the IMPACT family. (Oh, and we were named HubSpot's Partner Agency of the Year, which is kind of a big deal.)

For 2017, we didn't go the ho-hum route, passively attending sessions to get a few tactical takeaways to start using back at home.

Instead, we worked. We did live website throwdowns. We were moved by incredible speakers. We crushed some of our personal, big, audacious goals -- and now realize we need new ones. We gained perspective.

Most of all, we learned we don't just want to grow for the sake of it -- we want to grow to be better.

Enjoy!
