    Thanks siri.

    I am doing some research while considering going to the conference in Las Vegas. It is only 9 hrs drive and would coincide with the ending of my current contract, kismet?

    Well siri, I did it. I booked the reservation. I am not sure if I will be driving down to las Vegas (9 hours from home) or some other method. I may just take the bus (also 9 hours)... Let's just say, I remember Frito breath on the bus ride home and it was not pretty.

    Now I need to figure out financing for the program. I should be able to figure that out by next week.

    Thanks for all your help...

    I would not mind sharing the two bed hotel room with someone to share costs.. Maybe I will connect with someone via VMI.

    Congratulations Nightngale!!! I know how hard this decision is. If it weren't so expensive, it would be an easier decision. I got my beginner pack late this afternoon from AALNC and have started scanning the material. I'm anxious to get started.

    Nightngale,
    I kinda wish I was going too. It would be nice, but I'm not quite ready to make that decision.

    I understand and respect your decision, totally. The forces were with me on this. It just fell into place. I hope that means it is a great thing to do. I am so ready...

    I'm sure will do very well. i just wish I could get my act together. Actually, it would've been good for me to go to the one in Atlanta.......just 5-6 hrs from me. But it just takes me awhile to make these decisions.

    Hello, I am also attending the VMI in October. From my research, it is definitely the way to go! I will be staying at the seminar location.

    It seems MARKETING is the #1 tool. And, I must admit, I am not experienced at all in that field. YIKES!

    Perhaps we will meet up in Vegas.

    Siri, How many attend the seminar on average?
