Session Title: How to Create Your Own 30 Days – From Passion to Profession

Session Extract:

With Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, we communicate in short bursts; does this mean blogging is dead? Is it possible to build a product/brand that goes beyond the 140 characters? 30 Day Adventures started as a simple project designed to shakeup everyday life and play with crowd sourcing content for a brand new blog. Seven months later 8,000 unique visitors and over 150 different experiences it’s become a full time job. We’ll explore how sharing your passion while challenging yourself, being authentic without over sharing and staying true to yourself allows you to go beyond Twitter and Facebook. To help build a stronger brand, dig deeper into storytelling. Challenge yourself, be authentic, stay true to yourself and just have fun. The busies builds itself through partnerships, relationships, and cooperation.
