    Want to hear about some of the behind the scenes moments from BizChix live? Hint: it's not all pretty. I'm sharing some things that no one else knows happened, the fear I experienced right before the conference and the incredible experience of seeing a community I have built over the last 3+years come to life. Dream it. Do it.
