Even though we can’t be together in person for the conference, that doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected with one another! Complete the challenges outlined below and share your progress with us on social media. We’ll be sharing each time an attendee finishes a challenge on our insta stories so we can feel like we’re together during this time. We can’t wait to see what you do!
Make sure to DM us a picture of completed challenges on Instagram @bitbybitnyc or email firstname.lastname@example.org in order to get a shoutout on our Instagram or website!
