This presentation was delivered as the opening keynote of Exceptional Women in Publishing (EWIP's) 2015 annual conference. I gave it to tell my own story of Publishing/Media Geek turned Entrepreneur and to also share my thoughts on the digital publishing world in general--how it has evolved and where it will evolve.

After years of thinking that the blog I started in 2004, called Pause, was lost forever in the Internet ether, my friend and business partner found it in a cached version and sent me a link.I am amazed, reading words that I wrote 10 years ago, before Co-Founding BlogHer, how "ready" I was to start my own venture.
