When I was leaving Austin to attend the Teachers Pay Teachers Conference, my husband dropped me off at the airport and gave me these words of wisdom, "Remember, the Hangover was a movie." In fact, I was having second thoughts. This was my first time to go to Las Vegas and my roommate had to back out because a sudden death in her family.
Remembering Jen Bengal's experience at the airport, I looked around for other people with teacher-like descriptions. Little did I know, I would be sitting on the plane next to four other Austin area TPT sellers. Then, I knew I would have no problem in making connections and establishing friendships at the conference.
Meeting My Blogger Friends
I'm a member of Upper Grade Memoirs blogging group. I had only met one member of our group before the conference. (Jennifer Smith Sloane) I have to say, these ladies are amazing. We visited like we had known each other for years. I also met up with My Reading Crew friends. I can't wait until our next link-up. It's going be fantastic.
I hope to write a personal message to each person on these business cards.
Can't believe I won in two separate raffles. Thank you to Ashlyn from the Creative Classroom for a $25 gift certificate to spend in your store and thank you to TPT for the Skinit for my computer. And, I won $98 at the slot machines. My friend Jennifer Reynolds won over $400.
My Take-Aways From the Conference
- Improve content on my blog
- Work on my brand
- Stay connected with sellers I met
- And, I had lunch with Rachel Lynette, listened to her wonderful keynote and attended her very informative session! I love her!
Now, I've got to get to work!
