Whew! The past five days have been quite eventful! I flew to Florida to speak at the Social Media Summit on Thursday afternoon.
I love speaking on the topic of Monetizing Your Platform, so this is always a fun session for me to share. And the attendees were so engaged and interested in the topic — which always makes it even more enjoyable!
On Friday, I had the privilege of giving two different presentations (Say Goodbye to Survival Mode and 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life) at the Florida Homeschool Convention. I loved getting to meet so many of you after the sessions and at our booth!
One of the highlights of the conference was discovering that FlyLady was there! She was at a booth near ours, so I was excited to get a chance to meet her and thank her for how she’s impacted my life over the past almost 12 years!
On Thursday evening, as we were heading to grab some dinner, we had this crazy idea that we should see if we could go to Disney World on Friday evening.
As we looked at our schedule for Friday, we didn’t think it would work since we wouldn’t be finished until around 7 p.m. However, since we were staying so close to Disney World and I’d never been before (My only experience at a Disney park was when I went to Disney Land once when I was two years old and I don’t remember it at all!), we decided to look up the hours for the park.
Well, guess what?? They just happened to be keeping Disney World open all night long on Friday evening!!
So I told my amazing team that if they hit a really ambitious sales goal at the Florida homeschool conference on Friday, we’d go to Disney World on Friday night after we were finished at the conference.
Want to know where we ended up from 8:30 p.m. until 2:30 a.m. on Friday night/Saturday morning??? 😉 Let’s just say, my team was highly motivated… and I’m SO glad they were as we all had a blast at Disney World!
Me with my wonderful road manager, Liz, on the train at around 10:30 p.m. We were slap happy by this time, but having so much fun. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I laughed so hard!
I LOVE this picture! It was taken around 2 a.m. in the morning. We were tired, but just so happy for all the fun memories we’d made as a team that night!
On Saturday morning, I gave two more presentations at the Florida Homeschool Convention — on How to Slash Your Grocery Bill Without Clipping Coupons and One-Hour Freezer Cooking. Afterwards, I headed to the airport and hopped on a plane back to Nashville to be reunited with my family. Oh how I always miss them when I’m away from them!
I slept for 11 hours solid on Saturday night and it felt amazing! After church on Sunday, we headed to Historic Franklin as a family.
We tried out Mellow Mushroom for lunch and were very impressed with it. My kids especially loved that they had inexpensive arcades. 😉
Then we walked down Main Street to Sweet CeCe’s for some delicious frozen yogurt. This was our first time to this adorable shop and we loved it! I have a feeling we’ll be back often. 🙂
We also walked around to some historic sites… In light of Memorial Day, it was good to be reminded of all the brave souls who gave their lives for freedom in America.
