Biggest #INBOUND19 Takeaways

With five people of diverse backgrounds, you're bound to find different takeaways. Here's a list for you:

  • Anese Cavanaugh's lesson on presence and showing up how you want to show up (with purpose), not how you think you're expected to show up.
  • "Anese radiates an aura of awesome." - Jackie
  • Doug Davidoff in the Westin lobby - and all the conversations we had.
  • When you're at INBOUND, lean in during conversations.
  • The only way we'll get better in life or business is by leaning into "the market."
  • Elizabeth Gilbert's challenge to people: Stop making excuses for not doing the things you want to do in life.
  • What are you willing to give up to have the life you're pretending to want? 
  • This "sales and marketing conference" ends up with so many great life lessons if you're open to it.
  • The hard work that the entire Impulse Creative team and our supporters is paying off. We heard a LOT of "Yo Impulse!" in the hallways. It's good to look up from our work and take in the impact we're having.
  • Dharmesh Shah's vulnerability in his keynote was inspiring. (Watch the INBOUND19 Dharmesh keynote)
  • We have a responsibility to take care of each other, online and offline. Geraldine DeRuiter spoke on surviving harassment that starts online. Women face a huge portion of it, and we need to stop it. 

Favorite #INBOUND19 Moments

INBOUND is like a family reunion combined with the biggest education and inspiration event each year. It's so hard to pick just one favorite moment. 

For us, moments of connection topped the list. Inspiration was next. Education followed inspiration. Those are the general moments that bring us joy from #INBOUND19. What else? 

  • Brian Halligan joining us on the couch in the Westin lobby for an impromptu chat among friends.
