I’m so excited to reveal the amazing inspirational speakers for the Wannabe Balanced Event ! Each one of these ladies have influenced my life in some way and I can’t wait for you to hear their stories.
Often times we lose confidence or enthusiasm when trying to pursue different endeavors. We get discouraged by over saturated markets. It’s not often that we hear of something completely new and innovative, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find a unique way of doing what’s already been done. I believe we are all bloggers in a way. Social media is something almost EVERYONE uses. We use it to teach, share, inspire, and support. Even though often times the message is something we’ve most likely heard before. The difference is it’s never been said by YOU. Combined with your personality, experience and background. There are a million different ways to say the same thing, what makes it unique is YOU! Different messages resonate with different audiences in different ways.
The Wannabe Balanced Event is about discovering your unique gifts and life mission. Then finding the courage and clarity to reach for it. As most of us are moms, the trick is finding a healthy balance between pursuing your dreams and being the kind of mother you want to be. Becoming a better you and setting an example for your children to dream big and work hard.
Jocelyn is a boy mom and material girl. She shares her love of fashion, beauty, and style on her Instagram account @dressmeblonde and her blog dressmeblonde.com. Jocelyn began blogging in April of 2015 and now has over 70,000 followers across her accounts. She loves to share good deals, pretty food, and fashion with her followers. Jocelyn is also the mom of two very active boys and two furry dogs.
She believes in being real with her audience, and that her authenticity is one of the main reasons people follow her. She is very selective with the collaborations she chooses – the companies, products, and events that she promotes are ones that she stands behind.
Jocelyn believes in empowerment, and that women (and everyone) should love themselves and their body for who they are. Fashion blogging is a very competitive industry, but she believes that the internet is big enough for everyone to accomplish their dreams. She encourages women to be supportive friends to one another rather than competing.
