Maegan, Owner | beyondthebandaids.com

"The presentation was a one man show by Lou Mongello of WDWRadio.com and yes, it is what you think it is, Walt Disney World Radio, or as I like to call it, the Walt Disney World Radio EMPIRE. Dude knows what he is talking about! He has built his empire from the ground up successfully. It was an informative and inspiring talk!" -

Elizabeth, Attendee | CFBlogCon

Lou’s presentation was titled “Quit Your Job and Do What You Love Full-Time.” Even though I never intend to make blogging a full-time job (I already have a job that I love!), I found his presentation to be full of honesty, passion, and humor. In a former life, Lou was a lawyer. Now, Lou is a Disney expert. He has his own radio show (about – you guessed it – Disney) and has published a million things (I might be exaggerating) about the theme parks. Now, I didn’t necessarily leave wanting to quit my job, but I did leave inspired and energized – ready to befriend everyone who reads my blog — and fill my brain with endless amount of information. I had no idea what I was in for.

What a motivating way to start the conference! Lou Mongello is the man for all things Disney. He left his career as a lawyer to do something he loves, talk about Disney. That passion of his turned into blogging, podcasting, books, TV, radio, and more. What I enjoyed most about his talk was his sincerity about pursuing a dream. It’s hard to come up with one important thing I took away from it, but I really enjoyed The 5 P’s… Passionate, Prepared, Patient, Persistent, and Positive.
