I am excited to say I am participating in my first Blog challenge this month!  After taking some time to recharge over the summer I am now back in full swing with my social media marketing business and decided that doing the Ultimate Blog Challenge with Michele Scism and Michelle Schaffer would be a great way to get me focused on the right things to keep moving my business forward at full throttle! (it’s not too late to join us) So for the next month (the challenge ends at the end of October) I will be posting here at the blog helpful tips, random thoughts, and who no’s what …. to keep up with the 31 blog post challenge.  So wish me luck!

I learned about this great challenge this past weekend when I attended Michele Scism’s “Take Action Get Profits” conference in Orlando.  I had an awesome time and learned a ton from Michele!  Here’s a picture of some of the great ladies I met while I was there!

My favorite part of the event was meeting all of the other smart, genuine, beautiful, and well accomplished attendees!  I met some truely amazing people and it really reinforced to me why attending Live Events is soooo important in this business.  I not only learned a ton from Michele I also learned a lot from the other business owners who attended the event.

I was also excited to meet with the other founding members of the GSMMA.  This is a great group of ladies (and a few men) with a ton of experience and resources for social media marketers and the businesses who need them! I am proud to be a member and it was great to meet some of the other members for the first time.

Here’s a few of my favorite take away’s and quotes from the event ~

  • Give more to get more!
  • Remember Consistent and Persistent Wins!
  • Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there ~ Will Rogers
  • Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle ~ Abraham Lincoln
  • The most difficult thing is the decision to act,  the rest is merely tenacity ~ Amelia Earhart

What’s the last live event you went to that you really enjoyed?  I would love to hear about it in the comments below!  Maybe we can connect at the next one!

To Your Success!
