The MissAdventure Festival Speakers are carefully selected female professionals, wonderful strong women who went against the odds and made impossible happen. These women have been thorough it all and yet they chose to define their destiny, to build a future on their own terms, to go against the flow, to risk it all. Being your own boss/a digital nomad/an influencer is a dream of many, yet not for everyone. Learn what worked for them, what didn't. Hear what they had to face. Be inspired with their journey. Learn how to create engaging content, a personal brand and how to establish successful cooperations with brands. Connect and become a part of a strong network of supporting women worldwide. Their is nothing more empowering than real women with real life paths. #iammissadventure
