The conversation turned to work. Someone complained she was being underpaid but didn’t know what to do about it. Should she [...]

Back To Bullish Conference 2013

The 2013 Bullish Conference feels, simultaneously, like it was just yesterday and like it was a million years away. On the one hand, I can’t believe how clearly I remember everything about it – the workshops, meeting Bullicorns from around the world, the beautiful pool and beach, running down Collins Avenue to find bottles of [...]

Bullish: Should I Learn to Code at Age 27?

I’ll get to the point. I was raised to be a wife and mom ONLY and had zero clue about how careers work. I was foolish enough to get a home health aide job right out of high school, lured in by the eleven dollar an hour paycheck. It turned out to be the black [...]

Jen’s BullCon Photo Diary

The 2014 Bullish Conference is in just 156 days! Photos of BullCon2013 by our conference photographer Julie Lavoie are here. But here I’d like to share my personal snapshots from last year’s glorious (and gloriously productive!) trip to Miami.
