We have a special treat for you today. Have you been thinking about the awesome keynote speakers at Alt Winter? Or did you miss Alt Summit this year but you heard how great the keynotes were? Well, we have excellent news, each keynote session was captured. We have the links ready to share:

Our Opening Keynote was made up of four internet powerhouses. You can learn how to Hope for the Worst with Jihan Zencirli. Then, let Luvvie Ajayi teach you to Create a Personal Style That Matches Brand Values. Sarah Michelle Gellar talks about Authenticity in the Age of Social Media and answers some community questions. And you can get a handle on the Evolution of Personalized Experiences with Mariam Naficy. We highly recommend you watch all four.

Next, grab some lunch while Rachel Faucett, Sara Domville, and Jane Mosbacher Morris talk about the launch of Handmade With Love. You'll hear where the idea came from, how it's helping marginalized women around the world, and how you can pitch your own craft kit ideas! Get ready to think about the potential of your business in a BIG way.

The closing keynote had us all in tears as we considered the question: How can I find and follow my true calling? Elle Luna talks about the Crossroads of Should and Must. "Should" is what we feel we ought to be doing, or what is expected of us. "Must" is the thing we dream of doing, our heart's desire. This closing keynote let all the attendees move forward in a direction we're excited about, and we know you'll love it too.
