Going to the NSA Conference

NSA is National Speakers Association. I’m a member of the Virginia chapter. Fortunately, because of the Pat Asch fellowship, I can afford to go. I haven’t been to a conference out of town in years. That’s the thing about selling a successful business for a startup. Sacrifices.

So I will be in Aurora, Colorado and staying the first night with my friend, Tamara. Next month she is going on a big backpacking trip that is very intense. (Camping to me is staying in a bed and breakfast.)

So wish me luck. I’m meeting a lot of other speakers and learning from them. I’ve had some good conversations this week about speaking at Virginia colleges. And for the banquet night at the conference, I’m wearing head-to-toe sequins. I love my dress bling.
