Stepping Off the Ledge

February 14, 2010


I signed up for the mom 2.0 summit last night.  Someone get me a cocktail. 

I feel like my inner entrepreneur and ‘net whore is just SCREAMING with enthusiasm but my little-known inner introvert is absolutely DYING right now with anxiety.


It is not often that I am rendered speechless or in just plain ol’ awe, but I get the distinct feeling that walking into that opening night party or the first day of the session could possibly render me both of those states all at once.

Not only will I know NO ONE (WHERE THE HELL IS THAT DRINK ALREADY?!), but my G-d the talent level of these ladies and men who are presenting is impressive.  These are the kinds of people I always love to be around – to work with – to brainstorm a seedling idea with over a drink on a napkin.  (Or would that be an iPad in coming days?)  So from that perspective this is going to be amazing.

I have this idea.  I’ve had it for a couple of years.  As I’ve watched this blogging community morph and grow and prosper and all but take over and transform media I’ve occasionally thought my idea was really, really good.  There were times when I didn’t.  There were things that took me away from this community.  But I’m hoping that this conference will help me know for sure whether this dog can hunt.  It’s time to take a deep breath, man up and take a shot at it.

Or at least find out if my gun is loaded with the right ammo.
