I just got back from my company’s convention in Dallas,Texas ( is that the hottest state in the union or is there one that’s even hotter?) and I am so pumped! I think that recharging your entrepreneurial battery and reconnecting with your “people” are two of the top reasons why we attend conventions. It most certainly isn’t for the rest and relaxation as we stay up late into the night and roll out of bed early in the morning.
This year our convention was titled “Family Reunion ’09 ” and you know what? That is exactly what it was like, I have been to many events in the past and it really was like coming home. The faces were familiar, everyone had a smile or a hug for you, and we all had something in common didn’t we? We are just ordinary people taking a chance so that we can live extraordinary lives.
The best part of convention this year was meeting all of my Facebook friends – like my sister from another mister Catey who is just the sweetest, tiniest person it will ever be my pleasure to know. I was also inspired by the young people – the under 30 crowd – who are setting goals, achieving them and setting new ones; cocktail waitresses and single Moms who have created or are on their way to creating a monthly multiple comma income. And then there is my roomie and new BFF Waple Michelle, who has vowed to stay on this ride with me no matter what!
What did I learn this weekend? Well I learned that I definitely chose the right company two years ago. One that has survived the economic downturn and is still focused on helping people to save money and make money. I won’t bore you with the details, awesome though they may be (you can check it out on my website ).
I also learned that you absolutely cannot stand still, say a couple of prayers and hope that God hears you and sends abundance and prosperity your way. God hears you all the time, and is just waiting for you to act, to move, to set your foot on that path and keep going no matter what. Life is all about the jorney, but most of us keep praying that we get air lifted to the destination.
Stop trying to hit your target and hit it already! Leave a comment and maybe tell me about your convention experience.
