The answer to my question is YES, YES, YES! In fact, not only mompreneurs, but all those interested in growing their knowledge in the fast-paced social media world. Hispanicize is certainly a great fit for mompreneurs, especially those who look to grow their business from doing social media marketing and learning how important it is to stay in business. Even if as a mompreneur you hire someone to manage your social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc; you need to understand what people want to hear from you, you need to understand what kind of content matters to your customers, or simply understand how to measure the impact your posts are having as well as understand how analytics works.
My Personal Story
Now let me explain you from day one why it was one of the BEST conferences I have attended this year.
I was super anxious to set up my booth and get it ready to look super pretty for all those influencers coming to the DiMe Media Summit. So I arrived at the airport and went straight to the Rubell Family Collection to set up my booth, right next to Lansinoh and Visit Philadelphia. After I was done setting up everything, I left and tried to go to bed early because the next morning my day would start at 6am.
By 7:30 am the influencers, special guests, and speakers began to arrive. The day was filled with so much enthusiasm and great energy from the different panels. Many people were waiting to hear one of my three favorites speakers together in one stage. Don’t ask me why but sometimes you just can connect with people and laugh and laugh as if you were friends for ever, then you talk to them and have things in common, that is my story with Lorraine Ladish.
Then with Gaby Natale, Emmy award winner, host and executive producer of the TV program SuperLatina, whom I have heard about, but didn’t meet her in person, and I didn’t meet her until my second day at Hispanicize, when she came to my booth took a picture with me and even tweet about her love for my jewelry designs, I couldn’t believe she would actually do her own tweets, I thought she had someone else but again there was a complete mediapreneur and celebrity blogger who DID IT ALL.
More About My 1st Day…
Oh and how can I forget Martin Llorens, whom I met a few years ago in Miami during the National Hispana Leadership Institute conference, where he was launching his first book “Descubre tu estilo : Tu guia para vestir mejor”, he’s always been super nice and always easy to talk to, he is a very well known writer, tv personality having his own TV program called HOLA MARTIN and works for one of the most watched Univision programs “Despierta America”.
The three of them inspired us in many ways, with different ideas on how to live a more meaningful life, how to live to your fullest, how to reinvent yourself and simply continue to GROW personally and professionally.
Maria Celeste Arraras, Chiqui Delgado were great panel. Among other famous influencers, fashion celebrities and more. We also had the opportunity to mix and mingle with well-known musicians and artists at “La Music” suite. I also got to meet Jon Secada, Boyz Wonder, Elvis Crespo among other up and coming music artists.
The day ended with a fabulous fashion show and the “Juanes concert”.
The 2nd Day
The 2nd day was filled with interested conferences with subjects like:
- Understanding your google analytics
- Drove video training
- Finding your voice to make a difference and impact your audience
- How to work with key travel brands among other interested subjects
- Highlights of the day was the Latinovator lunch with Laurie Hernandez, US Olympic gimanistic Gold & Silver Medalist. Check out the event schedule http://hispanicizeevent.com/schedule/ – so next time you don’t miss being part of Hispanicize.
My 3rd Day
My third day started really early. I was thinking all day of ways to make earrings for Micayla De Ette for her night’s movie premiere of Hold On. She had already purchased an EBD bracelet and wanted large huayruro hoop earrings that will match her bracelet. So I created earrings for her using our popular expandable good luck bracelets; totally clever, right? but it all worked out and she was super happy with there hoops:)
We arrived at the premier of HOLD ON at the Lincoln Theater. The movie kept everyone engaged and the movie content was so STRONG and POWERFUL, that left us with many tears to see and realize how life it isn’t easy for everyone. I was inspired by a quote I read from Micayla De Ette HOLD ON TIGHT… Good things are comin…from Hispanicize at the premiere of Hold On: The Movie and guess who wore Evelyn Brooks Designs Peruvian huayruros jewelry, main character Micayla Dette. A night full of emotions that made me think no matter what, EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
My 4th Day
By day four I was literally exhausted but a big day ahead awaited and the most anticipated Tecla Awards will be happening at night. http://hispanicizeevent.com/events/tecla-awards/
That day I had the opportunity to mix and mingle with well-known musicians and artists at “La Music” suite. I had been a fan of Elvis Crespo, and this is where I got to meet him as well as John Secada.
I have countless memories that I will treasure forever from my first Hispanicize and I hope is not the last;)
I will hopefull see you all there very soon.
