I had the privilege of speaking at BlogHer 18 this summer. Before the event, one of my colleagues reached out to me and asked if, as a speaker, I had access to extra tickets. She saw the incredible lineup and wanted the opportunity to attend the conference. I asked on her behalf and found out not only could I get her a ticket, I could invite four more people to attend the event. By her asking for herself, she gave four other women the chance to advance themselves too. Opening a door for yourself allows other women access to the room.
