This was an awesome post Aliza. Back in my days of trying to make it in the Web world and understand and figure out my place in it, women like you and your organization sort of helped me to start charting out my path. I'm happy you're back on the grind again. Looking forward to seeing what you have to share.

We're thrilled to have you at BizJam, Aliza. Here's a stat that you and your readers may find interesting: BizJam has an almost equal number of men and women speakers (16 women, 17 men), something I'm told is uncommon at tech conferences.

But then, BizJam isn't really a tech conference, even though the entire first day is devoted to social media. It's an indie business conference, a place where small business people can connect with each other to grow their business faster and make them more profitable. We just happen to believe that technology such as social media is a fantastic way to do that!

I can't wait to hear your talk.

Dear Aliza!
Thanks so much, for sharing this experience! When looking at a bio, you only see the big stations and it all seems so straight, clean - and easy! But that is not the way, sometimes yes, but most of the time there is a big effort.
Keep on walking! And have a wonderful BizJam!

@Dan McComb - indie business conference sounds amazing, and even the gender relations! I have been to so many tech, business events, conferences - and if it was not women-only, there were hardly many women at the stage. The event description sounds promoising. Wish you a great conference!
What a pitty that Seattle is so far from Austria ;-)

I'll be looking for you at bizjam. I feel like I am generally up to speed on the last 8 years of your life and we haven't even met yet.

Thanks for your honesty and authenticity in this post. There is so much they don't tell you in books. Maybe it's better that way because there are a lot of things people wouldn't do if a book told them "It's going to hurt like hell and there's a great chance you'll be horribly depressed for months, maybe years." Yeah, that is not a great sales pitch for anything.

I get it. I haven't had kids, I don't know first hand, but I have witnessed someone go through this.

I like people who tell the truth and bring the humanity back for us all. I think that especially online it's easy to hide out. Thanks for being real.

See you tomorrow! Can't wait to talk with you.

Sorry to be missing you at BizJamSeattle (in Berlin at the moment!) but following your live-twittering of it and it sounds full of awesomeness.

Glad/relieved to know someone was there to bring the humane, personable, accessible side to balance out the over-techey-istic tendencies.

Yay! And tell Dan my duck says hi! Biznik is the bomb.
