at RWA's Literacy for Life book signing charity event
"I try to attend RWA every year, when I can, because it’s such an enriching experience. The workshops are inspiring, educational and uplifting. Admittedly, I didn’t get to as many as I’d like to have this year, but I did walk away with some juicy bits of knowledge and empowerment.
I also love the friendships I’ve made at conference. Reconnecting with old friends and making new ones is such a joy and this year, in particular, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent visiting with people.
Every year I seem to tap into some kind of personal theme, a message I come home with. In year’s past it’s been hope, persistence, goal setting, etc. This year’s conference theme was all about getting real. I feel like I got a clearer picture of my goals and what it’s going to take to achieve them. Sometimes reality checks aren’t fun, but they are necessary and I feel more focused and driven because of it. I also feel very blessed and fortunate to have my book release weeks away. SLEEPLESS comes out September 2nd and this is a magical time for me. Conference was my first taste of the excitement coming my way and I can't wait for more!"
