That is me!!!
It started! I’ve started!! This is when I can start saying, “Yes, I do have a business.” Not, “I have a ‘business’?”
Tonight, I walked in the door at 6:30 – on the dot! Nothing like being right on time! (I suppose, if I am going to “Start Smart”, I have to get together my time management.) Anyway, I was greeted by Doug Carleton. Do you know Doug Carleton? You cannot say “hello” without smiling! He invited me to grab a nametag and then I found a seat for the night. At each seat, they already had fun bags filled with goodies waiting for each participant. (My favorite part was the pen.)
It is a small world, for sure! After taking a quick glance at the nearly full room, I saw my neighbor!! Seriously, why does it seem like I always see my neighbors when I am not at home! Anyway, I waved across the room and then I said, “Hello” to Eyvette Turner from Create Xtremes who was sitting in front of me. I got settled in with my iced coffee and began to type what you are reading now.
While we all began to talk and wait for the first session to begin, I realized that some of the participants noticed that the large conference table they were sitting at was facing backwards, so they could not put their legs under the table. A couple of spinning tables later, some laughs and a lot of teamwork… I knew this was going to be a great community!
Well, at this point, my laptop warned me that my “charged computer” (that I specifically charged ahead of time so I could fulfill my “Imbedded Mogul” duties) was at 10%. What? So, lesson learned.
Next time, when I pick up the laptop and think to myself, “I won’t need the charger”… I will probably need the charger! If I can read my handwriting, next time I will blog about what happened next and about some of the content, we talked about throughout the first session.
