Et Tu, SXSW?

Monday, October 17th, 2016

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-6-26-26-pmToday, I was rejected for the second time by SXSW2017.  Both panel pickers (the other rejection came a while ago for SXSWedu) were a big fat NO from the organizers for next spring’s big shin dig in Austin.  Considering thousands of panelpickers were submitted for consideration and only hundreds were selected, the panels were kind of running against crazy odds in the first place–but for me, this was a bucket-list item.

But that’s not why I’m writing this post–to share yet another of my fails in a big and ever-growing pile (trust me, there are many, MANY to choose from!)

I’m writing this post to ask you–when was the last time you failed? Like massive, epic, public, defcon-level-1 failure?  My fails this year have been big in scale and proportion.  These 2 are tiny compared to other whoppers I’ve made this year–some I’ve shared, some I have not. (Yet.)

My point: if you’re aren’t failing big, you’re not taking enough risk in your life.  You’re not growing, and you’re not pushing yourself enough.  Those who ultimately achieve big great hairy audacious things keep pushing, moving forward, failing, experimenting more, and trying again.  I know in the realms where I was professionally educated–law and pharmacy–we’re trained that failure is something to be shunned and avoided at all costs, because failure in these realms can mean big, bad things like death and/or incarceration.

On the other hand, if you keep succeeding and never face failure, what are you going to do when it DOES finally arrive? (Oh, and it will. Guaranteed.)

I’m not afraid of failure.  What I am afraid of is not trying…and most worrisome of all: regret.

So, celebrate that next big fat fail!  If you’re failing, you’re trying and pushing yourself.  Go on with your bad self, you rockstar, you!

P.S. If you were kind enough to vote, share and tweet about this and the other panel picker over at SXSWedu earlier this year, THANK YOU for your support during our panelpicker voting!  We could not have gotten this far without your support!!!!

It’s About to Get Obnoxious Up in Here…

Friday, August 5th, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 8.32.19 AM…she’s on her STEM princess bandwagon again….(not that she ever stepped off).

But my friends, I’m about to get obnoxious with my asks this coming month, but I’m also going to  need YOUR help from 8/8-9/2.  I’m trying to get the #STEMPrincess project in to SXSWedu in 2017.

SX, if you are not familiar, is the holy grail of cool meetings.  Apps are usually kicked off there.  Authors give away advanced copies of their NEXT book projects at this event.  It’s the FUTURE, TODAY – which you all know I LOVE to be in the middle of!

So, in order to weave through the morass of 4600 other panels submitted for talks at SXSW, I’m going to call on you, my Fab 14 friends, to help me VOTE and spread the word on the Panel Picker for SXSW with the STEM Princess project!

Help Erin Get the STEM Princesses to SXSW17:

Step one: You have to register with SXSW in order to be able to vote.  Here’s where to register.

Second: I’ll send links to the 2 panel pickers I’ve submitted and put them in this post when I have them. Here they are:

http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/60048

and

http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/59975

Third: VOTE. Voting my the crew counts for 30% of the final decision on getting selected.  So I’m really, REALLY going to need your help in stepping up here.

Fourth: SPREAD THE WORD.  If you vote, then I’m going to ask you to pass it on to 3 other friends to have them vote.  The only way we’re going to get girls talking STEM at SX is to create the only presence NOW.

That’s it for now.  But I’ll go ahead and apologize in advance for the posts/tweets and groveling between 8/8-9/2.  Remember–I’m doing it for the NEXT generation of girls to turn into STEM rockstars.  Even though the bandwagon may be loud and squeaky, YOU CAN BE WHAT YOU CAN SEE!
