Last year, I visited Vermont for the first time. I'm always wanted to go to Vermont so you might think it was a disappointment when I finally got there and stayed in a hotel for 3 straight days. If you thought that, you'd be wrong, because I was there to attend to 2008 Conference of Handcrafted Soap Makers and I had a ball. This year, I'm going to their 2009 conference, and once again, it will be at a place I've always wanted to go: Palm Springs, California. And once again, I'll be in a hotel for 3 straight days. But the weather's a little different in Palm Springs so I'm sure I'll be motivated to spend more time in the California sunshine. Either way, I am jazzed to the max. Won't you join me?
If you're a Professional Member of the Indie Beauty Network, the Soap Guild is offering you a $50 discount on the conference price if you register this month! Plus, they will help you find someone to share hotel costs with if you'd like to share a room. There are tons of knowledgeable and enthusiastic speakers, including Yours Truly, live comedy entertainment, and prizes and goodies. Like last year, Indie Business Media (my husband and I) is going to videotape the event so we can create another promotional video. (You can see the one we created last year at this link.) We are honored that the Soap Guild has invited us back again this year. I was one of the very first members of the organization, way back when it was a backyard meeting in the founder's home in Apple, Ohio! While my then full-time job kept me from attending the first meeting, I have been in attendance at nearly every conference since then and I have never once regretted it. So what are you waiting for??! Head on over to the Soap Guild website and register today!! And don't forget to grab your $50 discount this month only! To enjoy the discount, put IBN in the member field area at checkout!
