Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Massachusetts Conference for Women. Over 5,000 women flocked to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center to listen to some fabulous people and help get motivated and inspired to take over the world (or at least the Common Wealth). And an added bonus? There was.. SHOPPING!
My favorite speaker by far was Suze Orman. I might have even left the event with a slight crush on this leather jacket fiercer than Sasha Fierce woman. I can see why she's so popular, she really does make you get excited about personal finance! It was great to hear her story about how she hit rock bottom and that it was such a blessing in disguise. Only bad thing? No book signing with Ms. Orman, so my dreams of grabbing a pic with her quickly went Kaputttttt. I would like to thank her though for making me update my 401K accordingly. Roth IRA's in the hizhouse!!
I enjoyed hearing our Governor's wife, Diane Patrick talk about her experiences since they (not just her Hubby) won the election. Marcus Buckingham presented a lot of great theories and observations of today's woman and how she can reach her happiest state- even more interesting since he, is obviously a man.
I'd seen many of these ladies on Television before, but up close and in person? They are absolutely gor-jas!
The biggest shock was seeing so many uncomfortable high heels make an appearance at this event! I saw 4 ladies stumble in their heels as well. This is a total Glamour Don't in my eyes!
