In less than an hour, the ALT NYC conference, hosted by Martha Steward Living Omnimedia, sold out. I’m grateful to be going. I need to go. Having penned this blog for nearly 3 years (how is that possible?!), I find I’m craving creative energy. Inspiration. Motivation. Ideas.
Have you found that whatever you do (or want to do) for a living …writing, painting, parenting, owning a business, styling, banking, interior design, real estate….that sometimes you’re on fire? And, other times you don’t feel so much in the flow? I think we all do.
That’s why I feel it is so important to connect with like-minded people. In person. Feel their energy. Learn from them. Recharge.
For those of us in the blogging community, ALT is an incredible gathering that is held annually in Salt Lake City. This past year, they also came to New York. But, I missed it. Too slow to respond. So, this time, I set 2 alarms on my phone. Logged on from my car and entered my information, only for the system to crash. Thinking that I’d have better luck on my desktop, I drove like a mad woman down I-95 and after several misfires, I finally got through. 20-something minutes later, it was sold out. Whew!
For those of you on the West Coast, ALT SF is also coming your way. The signup is on March 15th…and take it from experience, you better be online the minute registration opens.
If travel just isn’t in the cards, ALT has created a channel where you can take online classes, just like the ones at the conferences. There is a host of great ones on tap right now.
If you’re a blogger, have you been to an ALT conference? What did you think? How would you advise I make the most of the opportunity? And, if you’re attending, I’d love to know so we can connect before June.
Whatever you do in life, we all need to learn, grown and recharge, so look around at the opportunities that are out there for you. It may be just what you need to springboard to your highest potential!
