Create & Cultivate brings together business leaders and entrepreneurs in one place for a day full of creative inspiration. This highly curated event features workshops, seminars, and panels with top executives in fashion, design, and business. Keynote speakers this year included Emily Weiss of Into The Gloss and Aimee Song of Song of Style. Having attended their inspiring event at the Ace hotel last year, I definitely came to be inspired.
This time, the event had probably tripled in size. The day was separated into two tracks with panels and keynote speaks discussing everything from the business of blogging to Instagram. The highlight of the day was the panel discussion with “The Fat Jewish” His nuggets of reality were hilarious and completely true. He talked about his Instagram life, how companies pay him to give “weird” shout outs to random products, and on not taking life too seriously. He bellowed “It’s 2015. ANYTHING goes.” And “Having a job is so 90’s!” I LOVED his no nonsense, approach to the world, and how he made it his signature. Even his dog had a cult following, supposedly having his own Uber drive him to promotional launches. He was definitely hilarious and candidly inspiring. He was “raw” and “dude like” in a sea of pretty beauty and I appreciated the candor and style. He has like 3 million Instragam followers, and I admit his feed is my favorite feed to add a laugh to my day.
