The Tops of SXSW for Me

After wanting to attend SXSW for the last few years and purchasing my badge in September, I cannot believe it is actually here. There will be plenty to do and see, but overall here is what I am most looking forward to in Austin. 

Will you be there? Let’s connect! @StephanieFlo; 

Seeing great friends in person. 

After connecting through Twitter, Britten Wolf and I have had a standing weekly phone call for the last 3 years. We’ve talked through a lot of life together and were the go-to support network along the path to landing jobs in our dream cities. The unique part of our friendship? We’ve only seen in each other in person 3 times. Here’s hoping our serious 7 day hang turns out for the best for this friendship. 

I came to admire Stephanie Wonderlin through the stellar recommendations from those in our online circles, her episodes of Tweetheart TV and her fantastic ability to leverage the 140 characters of a tweet – turning Twitter into a dynamic conversation tool. I knew I had to have her on my team and fortunately she has been in my corner the last few years. Wherever we go we bring the #stephaniestyle and I have to remind myself we haven’t actually met in person. Here’s to changing that.

Being a “student always” for an entire week.

Keynotes and sessions and workshops – oh my. Yep, this is the stuff nerds live for. As a first time SXSWer, not knowing what to expect is intimidating, but also very exciting. I cannot wait for the information overload.

  1. That’s an amazing way to meet someone (Twitter) and keep a friendship going. You guys must have really related 🙂

  2. Thanks so much Cat!! I view Twitter as the ultimate way to be like-minded people together. Have you made the big move?? : )

  3. Hey Stephanie! Yeah! I made my move to Hawaii a week ago! And today… I got a job offer from back home that sounds appealing. I’m really unsure of what I want and I made the move to try and figure it all out. It’s beautiful here on O’ahu, but I don’t think it would be sustainable for the long term. So many decisions! I did meet some cool people out here already and I’ve got to make sure I stay in touch with them.
