Story 2012 Visual notes

Yesterday, I shared my visual notes from the Quitter conference. I was blown away by the positive responses, because I was really nervous to share them.

Isn’t it amazing how fear tries to tell you that what you are doing is nothing? That it’s not good enough? Every time I do something that pushes me out of my comfort zone, I am always surprised and encouraged.

I had the privilege of attending Story in Chicago last Thursday before heading to Quitter. This was my third time at Story. Each year has been different, and I was so excited about the speakers, as well as meeting Twitter friends in person. Being able to hear from Bob Goff, Erwin McManus, and Anne Lamott all in one day is pretty incredible! Ben Arment and his team did an amazing job, as always. If you have never been, I highly recommend it. Oh, and I won a prize! I rarely win anything. I won a website redesign, which is pretty awesome. Thanks, Story!

Here are my visual notes. Enjoy!

I am big fans of all of these speakers, and really enjoyed each of their sessions. They have incredible insight and share honestly about their struggles and successes.  I even got to meet and get a hug from Bob Goff, which made my day!


I loved meeting Bob!

What fear is holding you back? Face it today.




  1. Okay, when I was looking at the Anne Lamott notes, I saw your picture of the cup and my mind immediately thought, “When your coffee is overflowing?” I may need an intervention.

  2. Tammy, these are awesome! I still wish I could have been there, but your notes make me feel a little closer to the action. Thanks for stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new and crazy!

  3. Wow! I bet that was such a great conference!! I’ll have to check out the next one.
