“How does B+B stand out against other content creator communities?
Whitaker: I don’t look to the right or to the left at other communities. To me there’s no competition because there is enough room at the table for everyone. Our biggest thing is less me, more we. I think it’s all about the team and the core values. Does the team live it out in their own life? Do they walk it out? It’s all about good leadership.”
During the Build + Bloom Houston 2018 free workshop, the team at ‘Not So Cool Podcast’ asked Jessica Whitaker to come and share about B+B and the free workshops we put on, as well as the start of it all in 2016.
“A plethora of free resources are provided during and after the event and attendees are encouraged to network with the other creators from their city after the panel ends. Professional development aside, it’s also an extremely positive environment that will leave you feeling more inspired and empowered than ever.”
