S I X T E E N D A Y S !
So, today we are doing a fun little Influence Meet and Greet. If you want to hear from a ton of different women on why you should join us at the conference you can go HERE. If you havent already purchased your ticket
Hello, I am Ashley. I am the Influence Conference Manager so I will most definitely be there
2 things you will be sure to have packed in your bag:
- A straightening iron- Its hard to remember since I change it so much but my hair is naturally curly-wavy-ish. So I DO NOT go anywhere without my trusty straightening iron. I use it as a curling iron, too. Its magical and very dear to my heart. Also dear to my heart...
- My husband. Y'ALL.
Hubby is coming to Influence. He is going to be watching Kendall in between nursing sessions and hanging out with the other hubbies and getting his first first-hand look into what its like to be friends with people you met on the internet. I am so excited I can barely stand it. ok he wont be packed in my bag but I still think this counts
- Meeting the core team. All year long I have worked with Lindsey, Rachael, Moriah, Hayley and Jessi. In that time, 4 of the 6 of us have brought new life into this world, one of us is juuuuuust about to and one of us will be pregnant at the conference. We have shared meetings and ideas and laughs and even a few tears. We have prayed for each other, our families and our marriages. These are my girls... I mean my girls. But I havent actually met all of them in real life and haven't seen the others since I was brought on the team (I only met some briefly at last years conference). So to say I am looking forward to us all being together is an understatement
- Watching all of you. I know it sounds cheesy, but this conference feels like my little baby. I have been working so hard on it
and having dreams about itwith the hopes that it will bless all of you. Like I said in the Influence post about preparing your heart for the conference, we've built this conference for YOU and I am so excited to creep all of youwatch you make the most of your experience. I hope you enjoy yourself and grow as much attending as I have in the planning. I am seriously so excited!
