It is wonderful to attend a conference and still be using the things that excited you a year later. Last fall, I was blessed to be selected as a Social Media Ambassador for Power Up Weekend in Washington, DC .  It was a wonderful experience. I learned things at that conference and started relationships that are still growing today! One of the best things that came from last year’s conference was that I learned:

TAN – Take Action Now

Vision Boarding – a great tool for getting things done
Fashion – The 14 items needed to have a complete wardrobe

Blogging – leave Blogspot and go to WordPress
