I am so glad I had the opportunity to go. I met some amazing people, made some friends, had some great networking opportunities, learned about some new products, listened to some great speakers, learned a lot, felt inspired, and the amount of swag that they give you is pretty crazy. The picture only shows a fraction of all of the stuff that I brought home.
They also had a little service project going on during the conference. This year they chose to do something for the Ronald McDonald House. I had the opportunity Thursday morning to go with a group of people to tour the Ronald McDonald House here. It was a neat experience to see everything that they do and to find out ways to help. At the conference we made cards for the families to use while they are staying there. That is something that I had never thought about people needing while staying someplace like that. I hadn't thought about how you might be missing birthdays and other things that you mind need a card for. McDonald's had a room set up at the conference where you could go and make cards to be donated. It was another fun opportunity to sit and do something creative and we got to do a service for someone at the same time.
