If you’re as excited as I am about the upcoming 2016 World Conference in sunny Orlando, Florida, you’re probably already started packing! While getting together your swimsuits and business cards, don’t forget to come truly ready to learn. World Conference is not only a time to celebrate the incredible achievements of our Consultants, but also an important time to network with other sister Consultants, and learn even more tricks of our trade.
This year, I’m thrilled about the First Time Attendee Rally, reserved especially for those who are attending their very first World Conference! We will be welcoming our veteran Consultants shortly after and ringing in the event in high style with “White Party” fashion attire. I’ve been told I know how to throw a great party, and that will definitely be the case as we welcome our Consultants to walk the pink carpet, dance to a headliner DJ, win prizes, sip cocktails, nibble on hors d’oeuvres and more!
I’m especially excited that we have invited Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of the New York Times Bestseller, Eat Pray Love, to speak on Friday, April 1. The book was so popular that it was later adapted for the silver screen for a film by the same title, and both the book and film inspired millions throughout the world. Oprah Winfrey even devoted two episodes of The Oprah Winfrey Show to it.
We will also be offering some unique learning sessions, including everything from Sex in America, led by Dr. Debby Herbenick, renowned author, research scientist, educator, sex advice columnist, blogger, television personality, professor and human sexuality media expert (quite an impressive list!) to Mastering the Art of the Sale, instructed by Pure Romance National Director Lindsay Wagoner and Senior Director Mallory Bohenblust. We will also be offering an optional Guest Golf Outing for Consultants’ plus-ones and well be providing prizes for the golfers who wow us with their best A-game.
World Conference is by far one of my favorite times of the year. When I was a Consultant years ago, I always looked forward to the opportunity to reconnect with others like me, who running their own businesses and balancing family and other responsibilities. It was awesome to pick their brains, ask each other for advice, and just have fun. That was my time to reap the rewards for all of my hard work and celebrate my peers who had worked just as hard. I LOVE seeing that same excitement in our Consultants’ eyes and having the opportunity to still share in this amazing experience.
