It's hard to believe that BlogHer Entrepreneurs '13 has been over for a full week. It feels like just yesterday that I was retweeting a ton of amazing advice from top entrepreneurs! I've been following what our attendees have been writing in their own spaces and around the web since the conference. Today I'm bringing you their thoughts and reactions as they still have a wealth of information to share with those who couldn't attend or those who might have been in a different session....more

Social media has literally changed my life to the point where it's unrecognizable at times from the life I led before I started blogging. I still remember that first night, lying on the sofa while my husband set up my blog for me (I was technophobic and didn't think I could figure out Blogger). I had no clue where I would end up just a few years later. Forget career changes and published books; I had no inkling the amazing people I would meet along the way. People I would have never met if not for connecting in cyberspace simply because our physical worlds were too far apart.
Today one of our speakers from BlogHer Entrepreneurs answered a couple of interview questions as we continue to near the conference in Silicon Valley next week. Nina Bhatti is currently the founder of a mobile technology start-up in stealth mode. Doesn't that just sound cool? She was previously the Principal Scientist for HP Labs. She'll be speaking on our How Do Engineers Hire Developers panel on Day Two of the conference.
Are you ready to start something big, and in need of a jump-start with your big idea to turn it into viable opportunities? BlogHer Entrepreneurs is the event for you! We're about to begin pairing mentors and mentees together for 1:1 mentoring, so if you're on the fence, now is the time to register!...more
Today I am pleased to bring you another interview for BlogHer Entrepreneurs '13, taking place next week in Silicon Valley. If you're unsure about attending, doubting your ticket purchase or dealing with pre-conference jitters, you definitely need to take time and read the amazingly inspiring words shared with me by Michelle Magoffin. She attended BlogHer Entrepreneurs in 2011 and 2012 and it changed the course of her career. In addition to being inspired by her work, you need to read all the way through her interview to check out a great deal she has for conference attendees!
But heed this warning: Her words may make you want to take that Big Idea you've been considering for awhile now and actually do something with it. Read on with caution!...more
