I was a panel speaker at my very first work conference, so I guess that officially makes me a "real" business woman. Putting real in quotation marks because honestly, most times I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. If I've learned anything since graduation, it's that confidence is key. Be unique, trust your gut, pretend to know what you're talking about, and you're guaranteed to knock people's socks off.

But in all seriousness, I felt like a total boss lady for the three days I was in NYC. And, I totally pretended I was living the lifestyle of the rich and famous while staying in this sweet hotel. I even went to a Knicks game by myself because why the heck not?
