Looking to kick your career trajectory? Plan to attend one of these four conferences
Forbes Under 30 Summit, Sept. 30–Oct. 3
The Forbes Under 30 Summit attracts thousands of millennials celebrating other millennials who are doing something great in the world. Held every year in Boston, this summit includes more than 200 speakers, a music festival, food festival, bar crawl and networking events.
Girlboss Rally, Nov. 17
The well-known Girlboss brand brings together women from around the world to network, learn and listen. However, this conference isn’t only about growing your career — it’s also about growing yourself as a woman, with resources for your health and lifestyle.
Create & Cultivate, Aug. 25
This Chicago conference features panels, workshops, “power hours” and more for women with side hustles, full-time businesses and an entrepreneurial attitude. Made for the modern working woman, it’s a “one-stop shop for the millennial creative business woman.”
MCON, Sept. 6
Designed for millennial leaders, activists and social entrepreneurs who want to make a change, MCON is great if you want to work for a cause-driven organization, want to get involved in a cause, are looking for a bigger purpose in your career or just want to better use your untapped talents. The Washington, D.C., event takes place on the National Geographic campus.
Guadalajara’s vibrant atmosphere and delicious foodie scene made it one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. With incredible options around every corner, it’s difficult to nail down the best of the best, but we think these restaurants come pretty close.
Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.
Sometimes it can feel like splurging on books is more expensive than it should be. Prices for novels are high and, for some, unaffordable. Even older titles, considered classics, can cost more than someone bargained. Many turned to reading books online or downloading audio files because it’s a cheaper alternative to physical books. However, what about the population of readers who love to read from paperbacks and hardcovers? Thankfully, there are companies like Thriftbooks that make it possible to afford books.
Bleisure — it’s a term we’re all familiar with these days. After all, millennials drive the rising trend, combining business and leisure trips regularly. Take a few days to decompress in a new destination after a hectic schedule of meetings and business.
Scrolling through social media, reading magazines and seeing images online of far-off destinations just feeds the need for travel. Some of us have a healthy dose of wanderlust already, but the added visual reminders can really set plans in motion — or at least plans for a plan.
