Last year was an amazing year for Natalie and I as we kicked of the 2nd Annual MomCon. We had over 200 moms come to celebrate life, motherhood, and community.
This year we have something hopefully even better in store for you.
We have partnered with some of the top businesses in our region, as well as speakers and workshop leaders from across the country to bring to you the best of the best this year. You will learn, interact, build, and connect.
This year the conference is all about building the steps to help make us more effective moms and women. We have 15 speakers and 12 workshops to make this day amazing as it can be.
Last year, I wrote this post about building up your mom tribe, and why community is so important when you are a mom.
Here are a few reasons from that post that definitely helps describe what The Mom Con is all about.
In the “mom phase” of my life, as I like to call it, I have found it imperative to find a community of other moms that I can connect with on my level. Women that I can trust, and share my experiences with.
I feel that as moms, we owe it to each other to show up, and be ourselves. We only gain the best from others when that happens. We need to be real.
But, with real, comes scary. It is showing who you are, the mom that you are, and the person you want to be accepted for.
Sometimes while being real is hard; finding a community that you can be authentic in, is even harder.
This is why we bring you The Mom Con.
The Mom Con is a weekend that is made for you to connect, offline, with real moms, doing real things.
Our speakers are moms who have worked to build businesses to show their children the value of hard work, and believing in your dreams.
They are women who have sacrificed things to have their children see what a strong mother can do.
Our hopes are that you can come away with ideas to grow your passion. It doesn’t have to be a business. It could your passion to do more charity work, to get healthier and stronger, or even how to open up to meet other moms.
This is going to be more than conference.
It will become your community.
A community where you can find strength, and maybe identify with the person that you were before becoming a mom, if that is what you need to find.
So here are the dets for this year? Natalie and I can’t wait to meet you!
