One of my goals this year is to attend a conference.
Last month, I had the opportunity to attend the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Women’s Business Conference in Austin, Texas.
It was my first time in Austin. I decided to arrive on Friday so I could spend all day on Saturday doing some sightseeing and tasting some amazing BBQ!
I had so much fun exploring the vibrant food and music scenes with my fellow NAWBO North & Central Jersey sisters.
A few highlights of Austin:
✈️ We had ice cream at Amy’s Ice Creams – the Mexican vanilla ice cream with Oreos was delicious!
✈️ We indulged in mouthwatering BBQ at Terry Black’s BBQ.
✈️ My favorite part is treating myself to a maple bacon donut bar at Voodoo Doughnut. It was heavenly.
✈️ We explored the trendy 2nd street for some shopping. The street was lined with a variety of shops, offering everything from boutique clothing to artisanal crafts. It was a shopper’s paradise!
✈️ To top it all off, we were lucky enough to witness a spectacular eclipse during our time in Austin.
Overall, my trip to Austin was a perfect blend of delicious food, vibrant music, and unforgettable experiences. Highly recommend visiting if you haven’t been to Austin!
Then it’s off to 3 days of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) Women’s Business Conference.
A few highlights and takeaways from the conference:
🌟 I’m proud to represent NAWBO – North & Central Jersey Chapter as the Communication & Marketing chair and share this experience with my fellow leadership team members.
🌟 We are so happy to gain two recognitions during the Annual Meeting – 70% retention in our chapter and 2022 Fall Membership Drive winner.
🌟 I had some great conversations with NAWBO members and women business owners from all over the country.
🌟 The exhibitor booths were an excellent place to explore new offerings, products, and services. I met so many other creatives as well!
🌟 The keynote speakers at the conference were truly inspiring. Their stories and experiences motivated me to strive for success and overcome obstacles.
🌟 The variety of workshops was fantastic! The skills I learned will help me with stress management, avoiding burnout, delegation, systems, and so much more.
🌟 And of course, the food and swags are amazing! Thanks to all the amazing sponsors.
I’m so glad I invested in myself this year to attend this conference. It provides the opportunity to learn, grow, and connect with others.
I can’t wait to attend another conference next year!
