ABC Business of Bride’s Conference 2009

Kudos must go out to the Indiana contingent of the Association of Bridal Consultants for a truly enjoyable conference. I think we Phoenix people must have brought the good weather with us, I didn’t have to wear a jacket the entire time I was there.
Indianapolis is certainly a lovely city. I was pleasantly surprised at the lovely old ornate buildings mixed in with the eclecticly designed newer glass and steel buildings and the lighted tree lined streets. Very picturesque.
Of course the main reason for being in Indy was the conference and the learning and networking associated with it. It reinforced my decision to blog as well as helped me form a better idea of how to use the internet and all of it’s wonderful social networking to my advantage.
I also attained the designation of Master Wedding Vendor (1 of 4 in the world) while I was there. Much like finishing my Thesis in College, I felt as if I would never finish with the compilation of credentials and my portfolio. Presenting and defending my portfolio frightened me initially, but having been in the business as long as I have gave me the strength and knowledge that I could do it. 7 out of 14 people submitting their portfolios are now Masters. I was the only Vendor, the rest are now Master Bridal Consultants. Congratulations to all of you on your hard work!
I only mention that not everyone was able to attain the Master level because I think it is important for everyone to know how difficult it is to become a Master. But have heart! Determination and skill will have the others with us soon.
Thanks to Indianapolis ABC and the ABC National Committee for a great conference. Can’t wait for next year in Phoenix where the conference will be hot, HOTT, Haute!
