If you read APOE often, you may know that I recently had the opportunity to speak at Business In Heels, a ladies business networking event here in Bangkok. It was my first time public speaking and it was terrifying, but all of the women were so supportive and I couldn’t have asked for a better environment to speak in.
I am so grateful for all that I’ve learned since creating A Piece of Elise and am even more grateful for everyone that has helped me and followed along with me on this journey. Being able to share some of what I’ve learned with the BIH community really means a lot to me, and making a whole array of new and inspiring friends was just the icing on the cake. I went home with a million business cards of people who all have something to teach me. Getting together with women to combine our knowledge and interests is exciting and uplifting. Waking up the next morning was even better than normal knowing that we’re all in this journey together! Not to mention my face literally hurt from an evening to laughing so much.
Thank you to everyone for being so totally awesome! If you missed out on my talk, or were too busy eating the delicious appetizers to catch what I said, here’s a little summary from en email sent out by Nicola of BIH Bangkok.
