Shelley’s Number One Lesson from IEG 2010: You Are Not an Island

For a long time I’ve prided myself on being an independent gal, a true “Single Lady” that even Beyonce would give a head nod to in the club. Not surprisingly, I value this quality in others. I like the ballsy, brashness it takes to pack up your car, drive cross country with no idea what awaits you, or to start your own business on a whim and a prayer. However, as I reach the ripe old age of thirty, I’ve learned that this independence does not serve one well in all situations. In fact, if anything, it can be downright detrimental to tapping in to a greatness that you have to offer that lies on the other side of independent bad-ass-itude.  more

Wait, I’m the Expert??

While this year’s sessions at Unbound are as thought-provoking and info-packed as ever, the highlight of this year’s conference for me has been participating in IEG’s Meet the Expert sessions—short meetings with attendees who have any number of sponsorship questions, from the basic to the bizarre. Just in the last 24 hours, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting with an attendee who founded a super-niche jazz festival, one who is creating a unique cooking Web site and another who wants to save the world by teaching children how to play.  more
