Well… here I am in Fairfax, Virginia – very close to Washington DC. I am spending a week at a conference, 7 Event , to learn some new skills and bring more to my business and clients.I went with Tracey Daviero (A friend and fellow VA) and was a guest participant of Paige Stapleton and Brian Stark – and based on what i have experienced thus far I want to thank all three of them as I would not have heard of this without my connection to Tracey.
Now, most of you have an inkling of how much I use Twitter, , but this conference was different. The leaders wanted us to focus on the message and (rightly so) requested that no laptops or phones were allowed in the seminar rooms and sessions.
So….. I figure I can handle this – my Blackberry is turned off anyhow because of the exorbitant roaming fees. Handle is wrong… as we go through all the fabulous sessions I realize how much I am missing being able to tweet the inspiring words of the people leading us at the event. I am just itching to post stuff! And yes, that was me in the lobby posting tweets and updates during our breaks and as fast as I can so that I can get out and meet some of the attendees and sponsors.
So I do the next best thing – I make note of the most inspiring statements and words of wisdom I am hearing. I have such an urge to share and no means to do so. It`s kind of frustrating but really makes me see how much I love to tweet! I figure the next best thing would be to take my list of handwritten tweets and post them here so I CAN share them with you.
