Had a GREAT time and was happy to see some familiar faces. The speakers were interesting enougth to want more information when they were finished. During the first conference, a listing of MSPA (?) companies were distributed. A thought to do that again, especially the 'shoppers' who presented, unless it is confidential. Cannot wait for 2011 (I hope to swing both - FLA and LV.) THANKS AGAIN!!

It is most likely those who received two were on the organizing team as well as present and learning at the conference.

I did not think I could afford to go to this as I really don't that much extra money from shopping. But I thought about it and I have decided I really want to go and I am going to pay for it with my "extra" shopping income. I have started taking extra shops that I otherwise would have turned down and even though these are shops I really do not enjoy doing, I think throughout the whole process "This is getting me the money to go to the IMSC."

The whole time some salesman is blathering on about all the features on his cell phone, I just hum the "It's a small world" song in my head and think about going to Disney with the money I am making.

If you are looking at the conference fee and hotel rates and thinking you can't afford it, just divide that number by how many $7 shops you would have to do and then divide that number by how many weeks there are between now and the conference. It can be done and I'm so happy I realized that.

My hope is that I will learn enough at the IMSC to start getting some better jobs and hopefully beating out my local competition for the good stuff. Then I will never have to take these junky jobs again.

see ya,
Amanda
