I just got back from # VWISEKC I want to encourage all my sisters to attend if your dreams of the future are entrepreneurial - Do this one thing for yourself and attend. It is an experience in layers.
The information taught in and of itself, is a layer and a well received one. The women I spoke with, another layer. For myself I felt the quality of instructors and information was excellent. Another layer was the sense of empowerment received from the wonderful speakers. Saving the best layer for last was the women attendees themselves - wow. They just blew me away. Excited, energetic and eager to learn and to connect and support each other. I'll ride the high of meeting and being in their energy for sometime.
