Shift. It’s a cool sounding word, and can conjure up the image of a couple different things: shape-shifters, seismic shifts, a swear word with an extra letter, someone going shhhh and then phhhht… you get the drift. But what does SHIFT have to do with social media, blogging, the environment, and food? Well, it’s shifting the way consumers ( that’s you and me) interact with companies and brands (that’s them) to create a healthier world… and that’s being done at Shiftcon Media in December!
Two years ago, April attended Shiftcon while I was at my bestie’s wedding. She raved about the jam-packed swag bag, but more importantly, she raved about the things she learned that were pretty eye-opening in regards to her approach towards health. Things like how certain chemical compounds are obesogens — chemicals that actually contribute to the rise of the obesity epidemic, commonly found in foods and personal care products. Or how you don’t really *need* to buy organic bananas because they’re protected by a thick skin but strawberries need that organic certification otherwise you’re basically eating pesticides in a berry. She learned more about her food allergies and even got to try a natural deodorant. It sounded awesome, and this year, I’m going! I’ll be volunteering at the conference, and hope to learn lots more about what I can do to be my best, healthiest self.
Now through June 1st, you can get $50 off the price of an influencer ticket with code VDOUBLECHIN. That makes your admission just $199 — a steal for three days of knowledge, networking, fun, and New Orleans mischief.
In full disclaimer, I’m not a totally “green” person. I’m what I’d consider light green. I’ve slowly shifted from buying processed crap to more wholesome, whole food products, and I buy organic when I can (my daughter’s food is 100% organic). Matt and I recycle about four times more than what we throw out, I have a compost pile, and I’m all about reusable bottles and containers. While there’s more I can do, I’m slowly shifting my mindset towards a more healthful one, and I think that’s what Shiftcon is all about — making a healthier environment and self more accessible.
Have any questions about Shiftcon? Ask me here, and I’ll find an answer. I’d love to have you join me in December <3 (April is going too!) Whadda ya say? Use code VDOUBLECHIN now!
