I can’t believe it’s been a year since my first San Diego Comic-Con! I’ve been invited back to speak on some sweet topics -womxn entrepreneurs, niche markets, and how to preserver through the hards times. Getting to speak about my passions next to some of my most admired peers? My good fortune is staggering! The trick, I’ve learned, is to speak on panels you would have gone to anyway.
Below is the list of panels I’ll be on, so if you’ll be at SDCC, come say hey!

As always, you can tweet me questions leading up to the panels @jazzlynstone
