Scott Stratten says YOU have no competition!

by Susan

Janice interviewed Scott Stratten during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and you may be surprised to hear what he had to say.

Scott thinks YOU have no competition! Yes, that’s what he said… take a listen…

IMG_6319Thanks Scott for sharing such valuable and inspirational advice.

And thank you for giving your Build-A-Bear prize to Janice’s little girl Olivia. Olivia will love and treasure that adorable bear.

(Disney covered costs for Janice and me to attend this event. While attendees did pay for the conference, they recognize that it was a greatly reduced rate and appreciate that Disney is again supporting the social media movement with this event. Disney did NOT ask us or any other attendees to write about the event.)

Talk soon,
Susan, co-founder of 5 Minutes for Mom.

What a great video and encouragement. I felt a little overwhelmed by all the Mommy bloggers who had TONS of followers and stuff.
But I’m encouraged by what Scott says and will keep plugging away and going my thing!

Love this video! That one line (the no competition line) is just an absolute GEM!!! Thank you! :D

Another great video interview. I’m learning so much in these little snippets, I can’t even imagine the tons of information that must have been given out at the conference!

I always feel a bit of envy when I stumble upon a perfect looking blog with lots of followers, but this has motivated me to take my blog places only I can. Thanks!

What encouraging advice – thank you! Also, had to comment: that exact Build-a-Bear (Pink tie-dye-esque bear complete with full Ariel garb) is what my daughter picked out for her 4th birthday last week. I think it must just be every little girl’s dream :)

I was really inspired by Scott’s video- I follow him on Twitter and he always offers great advice and encouragement- one of the few I really like to read. It was refreshing to hear his point of view.. and really its super true.. no one like me :)

Scott is one of my favorites. I’m so jealous that you got to meet him! :-)

What an awesome interview! I love his advice, his honesty, and that he was brave enough to go to a “mom’s” conference…that rocks!

He would make a great potential speaker for a future event.
