I was to speak at Alt Summit, a conference and community of thousands of women influencers and entrepreneurs in creative fields. But I just couldn’t do it. My husband had decided to tag along, but spend his days at a nude boutique hotel, soaking up rays while I was across town working. Two weeks before we were to leave for the event, I confessed that I had yet to write or even practice my speech. My burn-out had rendered me incapable. He quickly saw an opening and took it. “Don’t do it then. Go to the clothing optional hotel with me instead.” I have never felt so comfortable in my skin since taking the plunge. I’ve never felt so body-positive. And now I want everyone to join me! -Mandy 💋
