I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Create & Cultivate’s Money Matters Conference, well except something great. That’s basically an understatement. It was more than I could consume in one day so I ended up watching the recorded sessions on Sunday because it was so much amazing content.

Favorite Sessions of the Day

Chelsea Handler: Keynote Talk

In this keynote conversation, we chat with someone who has been a trailblazer not only for female comedians, but for all females with her raw, real, and hilarious comedy—Chelsea Handler.

Can I just say how much I freaking love this woman? In this talk with Allison Statter she is talking about her career and how we as women have to work together. When one of us succeeds we all succeed, then when you get up there reach back down and help the others up.

When talking about Life will be the Death of Me, she talks about going to therapy and how to be an adult and work through your shit. I was very fortunate to be able to go to her show and see her talk about it live.

Camille Styles: Vision Boarding & Goal-Setting For Post-Quarantine with Natalie Ellis: How to Grow Your Following Quickly and With Authenticity

Natalie Ellis is the founder of Boss Babe, and she spent the session talking about how to grow your Instagram following through specific steps.

Payal Kadakia: Mentor Session

You know this keynote speaker as the founder of ClassPass.

She’s been featured on Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list, profiled in Fortune, Marie Claire, and Vogue, and (oh yeah) she kicked off 2020 by giving birth to her son And having Classpass become the first billion-dollar company of the new decade.

But all this success didn’t happen overnight.

She had to pivot multiple times while building her now-billion-dollar business—and now, in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, she’s pivoting once again.
