10 Ways to Boss Up
(Lessons from Byob Retreat)
In this day and age, when people of color are perceived as bottle throwers and threats to Starbucks, it was refreshing to spend this past weekend with brown people who are dedicated to making their own dreams come true at the Build Your Own Brand Retreat (BYOB Retreat).
Over this past memorial day weekend, I attended the first BYOB Retreat held in Washington, DC. It was a life-changing 2-day experience full of melaninated and impeccably dressed dreamers and doers. We heard inspiring talks, grew our network, gained clarity on our goals and ‘masterminded’ with our peers. Basically, it was a weekend of plotting, a little bit of twerking and learning how to be dope, fab, and innovative BAWSES.
It was as if Afropunk, Forbes, Essence festival and Grits and Biscuits all had a baby- and I was there for the birth. Now, I’m here to give you the play by play.
