I’ve been back from BEECH Retreat for over a week now, and I am still buzzing with excitement from all that happened.
On the way home from the airport I was wound up like an eight day clock, and Jeremiah politely and patiently nodded as I told him about three days worth of continual information concerning SEO, monetization, affiliates, and sponsorship in less than an hour.
I did the same thing the next day as I talked to my dad on the phone, and when I asked my mom later that day, “Did dad tell you what my conference was about?”
She said, “Well, you know him. As soon as you say the word computer, he zones out. So all he told me was you are doing something with a computer and the internet, and you’re gonna change the world.”
Well….. I don’t know if that’s what I said, but if that was his interpretation from all my babbling- I’ll definitely take it.
BEECH was absolutely the conference I needed, and had been praying to go to for a long time. It was worth the time I took to prepare things around the house for me to leave and be away from my family for three days.
I walked away from BEECH feeling like I had doable information and a great list of things to implement here at Santa Beso. It may take me a year to get it all completed, but hopefully as the months progress you’ll see some changes.
I also met wonderful people who were more than willing to help answer any question no matter how embarrassed I was that I didn’t have the answer figured out by now. A special thank you to Jenni from The Blog Maven for letting me literally sit at your feet and learn from you.
Seeing a few old friends from a previous blogging conference was absolutely special, but the new contacts and relationships I’ve built is amazing. I mean unbelievably amazing.
Some people think that the largeness of a crowd means that something life changing is happening as well. But after attending BEECH, and seeing first hand the output of a great leadership team, I am convinced that just because it’s big doesn’t mean it’s healthy.
BEECH was a good dose of medicine and a cure for a heart that needed to regain and rejuvenate hope concerning blogging.
Thank you to all who prayed for me. I am certain that they were answered, and with time you will see them revealed here.
