Going Solo, the conference for freelancers and small business owners in a digital world, was awesome – great keynotes, great crowd. But I really made the right decision to stay over for the weekend: since the conference itself was chock full of keynotes and panel sessions (which is great), I could use the following day to hang out with really wonderful people such as Thibaut ‘people over 25 don’t get social media’ Thomas, Stowe Boyd, Stephanie Booth, Stephanie Troeth, Laura Fitton, Caroline Maerten, Martin Röll and others.
That was actually just as inspiring and fun as the conference itself (which makes sense, since most of them were actually speaking at Going Solo). Caroline and I even recorded video interviews with Stowe and Stephanie, which will hopefully be posted soon. I feel very lucky that I’ve been able to spend time with these great people, I’m still buzzing with excitement.
It was especially fun to watch 99,999 balloons go up into the air. Lots of them who were released from a lower part of Lausanne; they flew over our heads, but then descended upon us because of the weight of raindrops, and we actually could pick them out of the air, shake off the water and re-release them into the sky. Photos are here, my other Going Solo pictures are here. Links to more coverage at Going Solo. Below, you can see conference organizer Stephanie Booth releasing a balloon.
