Badassery Magazine May 2018 Issue 24 - Page 11

I f we say 14 women spent close to 5 days together in one house, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Tears and tantrums? No, it wasn’t an episode of Jersey Shore! There were tears, but happy ones. What actually happens when you put 14 inspirational badasses from across the globe is magical: in one weekend the lives of every wom- an who attended changed, for the better. If you haven’t already worked it out, we are talking about the Ba- dassery Bash in Las Vegas. Women attended from 6 different countries across the globe, with our interna- tional badasses flying for between 10.5 to 30 hours to get to us - yes, that is how much some of these amazing women wanted to share this experience with us! Each woman was at a different stage in their life and business. Some felt that they weren’t ‘ex- perienced’ enough to be with us, while others felt that they weren’t ‘worthy’ of spending time with us. By the end of the weekend, these feelings were GONE! We talk about the power of in real life meetings a lot; but this took #IRL to a whole new level. As business owners, we have all built relationships and friendships to- gether online. In some cases, these relationships have been built and maintained for over a year. When you finally come face-to-face with the women you have only ever met via a computer, something clicks into place, as you feel as though you have REALLY known this person all of your life. 10
