Have you ever been to a conference? If you are in direct sales like me, then you might have. Some direct sale companies have annual conferences. It is a great time to meet other people that have the same interest as you. It is also a time to re-energizer you for your business. This was my first year at conference, so I will tell you day by day what I did. It was an amazing experience. Without further delay lets start with the first day:Thursday: I roll over and my alarm on my phone was going off… beep beep beep… I get up and wake up my son and my hushand. I tell them both get dressed we are going to have breakfast before I leave. I get ready and it is literally taking the boys (Randy-husband- and Ethan-son-) FOREVER. I have the car packed, I am dressed, brushed my teeth and I am in the car waiting and waiting playing on my phone. So, I go inside to see what is taking them so long. They are looking for a hat.. a hat because Ethan’s hair is a mess! We decide its not a big deal and we go eat breakfast at i-hop. Breakfast is one of the only meals that we all enjoy eating and can eat together. We spent some much need time together before I was on my way. I drove a few hours and listen to all of my favorite men! Justin, Bruno, Justin, Ed, Jay Z, Sam. I heard new sons, old song and just enjoyed being alone and able to sing out loud! Now, if you know me you might know that I cannot and I mean cannot sign. Not a single tone what so ever! Sometimes I joke around with my son and tell him if he is doing something I don’t want him to then I say now, “do you want me to start singing?” So, if you have ever drove down in Chicago you know there are tolls. Tons of tolls. I had to have about $10 in change for it. There was a lot of rain the week before and leading up to when I left. One of the roads when I was about 20 minutes away from the hotel was closed off. Why was it closed because it flooded! I had to turn around and go down a different street and if you know about GPS then you know it said, “turn around when possible” Well I turn around a few different times then it took me back to the same street and so I had to turn around again and try to find a different way. Once I got to a road that had tons of cars on it, but it was moving! Then I come up and there is water accross the road and everyone was going through it! Now, that made me nervous and gave me tons of anxiety! Since there were cars behind me and in front of me and to the side I could not turn around, so I decided I would go ahead and go through the water! I made it to the other side without getting water in my car and I made it safety! There was only about 15 minutes left of driving. Once I made it to the hotel and parked! The hotel was big and fancy!! I walk up to check in and there are tons of windows. Of course I am looking through them. Then I see someone I know, her name is Julie and she is my upline! (The person who recruited me to start clever container.) I knew who she was because we do zoom’s which is where we can see and talk to each other! I was so very excited to finally meet and talk to her in person! I walked through the door and she met me and we hugged and started talking. I went and checked in with the home office and received a bag and goodies inside! (see photos) I checked in with the hotel and got a room key I took my goodies upstairs and then unpacked the rest of my car. Once I was done I went back downstairs and talked with Julie (my upline) and checked out the clever store. Inside the store there were shirts, products and discounted shirts! I decided not to buy anything yet, but would later. I went back up to my room because I knew that Friday I had to dress up and I still needed to paint my nails/toenails. I was still doing my toes when my room mate showed up and we hit it off! She is a sweet girl. We went and got subway and watched Big Brother together. Chatted all about big brother and clever container and how we are excited to be at our first conference together. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog more to come!
