I am a firm believer that empowered women empower women. I am also a firm believer that when you fill an entire room of powerful women, the result is pure magic. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to experience this kind of magic during Kyshira Moffett's Hustle HER Way Summit in Pittsburgh, PA. Moffett is also a certified girl boss, with a variety of titles such as Brand Strategist, Business and Lifestyle Blogger, Author, and Bombshell to her brands, which includes: HER Movement, The KSM Group, Life of a Bombshell Cosmetics, and Hustle HER Way.
Moffett is such a kind and humble person, both inside and out. If you're thinking about attending Hustle HER Way next year, definitely read on!
1. Don't get caught up on what to wear
Prior to the Summit, I definitely spent a ton of time thinking about to wear, what to pack, what not pack, etc. Although I do think it's important to dress your best, I think it's important to be realistic about several things 1) your finances, 2) your level of comfort, and 3) everyone has their own style. If you're considering attending Hustle HER Way next year but are not sure what to wear, I suggest looking at pictures from previous years or simply ask a friend what she's thinking of wearing to get some ideas.
2. It is crucial to SLAY in your LANE
On night one of the Summit, PR maven Lola Sims talked to us about slaying in your lane, what it means, and why it's important to do so. "Slaying in your lane is owning who are. No one is going to think the way you think," she said. No matter the variety of moves she made and currently makes, Sims also mentioned that she was able to bring things she learned from one lane and apply it to another lane.
3. Be mindful of who you roll with

4. Every FAB Hustler must have:
- Fresh perspective and clarity
- Authentic presentation
- Biz Bestie (aka accountability partner)
- Build your squad
- Get digital house in order
- Know they goals
- Own your story
- (What is the story behind the brand?)
- Do your research
- Nail your pitch
- Dust yourself off (and try again!)
