Very good, very well prepared. I appreciated how she demonstrated each skill/tool she was trying to communicate. There was a wealth of information there.... I was inspired by it and created a quiz with a PowerPoint accompaniment, just to try out visual and textual.

Our Time at Haven


Well, I said I would tell you about our trip to Atlanta, so here goes. We had a very nice experience. When we arrived, a limo driver approached us and noted his fare was late, so he took us to our hotel for the same price as a cab. The hotel was lovely, and I really appreciated the mirror that magnified everything by a zillion percent (well, some things weren’t so great to see from a larger perspective).

We each attended some of the seminars that were offered, and I learned about partnering with sponsors, Google statistics, and getting published in magazines. The sponsors were very helpful, and the other participants were friendly. Plus, the food was delicious. Many of the meals were part of the package, and we had the opportunity to eat at Ruth’s Chris one night as well.

The speakers were inspiring. I am not a DIY-er, but I still learned some important tips from Ana White, who was the keynote speaker. The theme of the closing speech was “Do Good on a Grand Scale.” That is a great sentiment, but I believe we can also do good on a small scale. You can read Stephanie’s account of the Haven experience here.

All in all, it was a grand experience. I am glad I had a chance to be on Peachtree Street in Atlanta. Now I can check that off of my bucket list.
