I’m quoted in a GetBullish article about automation (aka bae):
At the 2017 Bullish Conference, speaker Emily Chapmanwill talk more about tools, systems, and processes (full talk title: Tools, Systems, and Processes: A quietly profane, rambling ode to keeping as little stuff as possible in your head because you might get hit by a bus or just not want to think about it).
One of the tools Emily is “ride or die” for is Zapier, which moves information between web apps automatically, and which we use here at Bullish.
The application connects to hundreds of different sites, profiles and apps that we use for our shop, social media presence and subscriber lists. Then we get a nifty email each week about how many “zaps” (haha, robot talk) were completed. Automation + Quantifiable Results = the kind of efficiency one needs to do All The Things (and a baby, and having time to more or less maintain my biceps).

I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been accepted as a speaker at BullCon17, a conference for ambitious, feminist women.
The conference takes place November 2-5 in Washington, DC. I’ll be speaking on Tools, Systems, and Processes—basically a loving ode to TextExpander an scheduling recurring events on your calendar so you can devote your brain space to Polyvore collections and/or SQL.

A personal endorsement: I attended the first two BullCons, and I can absolutely say that the professional and personal connections I made with the women there have been the most beneficial connections I’ve acquired since I left school. It is incredibly worth the money and I am very excited to attend in addition to speaking.
