Influence Conference

This week has been such an eye opener for me. First, because I am seeing just how vast and beautiful the Influence Network community is. So this week, I listened a bit in on the Influence Conference simulcast for info about the conference. I didn’t really expect that I would be going but just like listening to these women and wanted to hear in. ;)

So here I am listening, and suddenly, I REALLY WANNA GO. I mean, I wanted to go before, but y’all…I WANNA GO BAD. lol! I just found myself longing to be with these women. To listen to them, see the faces of the ladies I have connected with through the network, and make friendships deeper. I have been praying the past week for a time away. Alone. A refresher of sorts. I have seen other friends do a silent retreat or time away without their families [have I mentioned that I LOVE my hubby and kids and don’t want it to seem like I want to escape them??], and I have longed for that refreshing time. A time of quiet. Peace. Eating my food while its still hot. Not having snot crusted to my shirt or a bubble of drool running down my leg. A time where I can have normal conversation [or none at all and just quiet]. A break away.

So I have been begging the Lord for it. And when I listened in on the simulcast, I realized how badly I wanted and needed it. So here is my call for you guys. PRAY. Please would you pray that the Lord blesses me with this trip?  That He provides in miraculous ways?

I also have a way for you to get involved but in a way that benefits YOU. Because the likelihood of you straight up buying my conference pass or plane ticket is kinda low. Right? Maybe I’m wrong… ;)

So here is the breakdown of the cost for the trip:

  • Conference Pass: $231.62
  • Round-trip ticket from Phoenix, AZ to Indianapolis, IN: $279 (lowest I’ve found yet)
  • Hotel accomodations: $100 (if I room with three other women, possibly with my friend Carrie ;) )
  • Meals not included in conference pass: $60 (dinners for up to three nights and food while I travel)
  • TOTAL: $670.62

This doesn’t include transportation to and from the airport [not sure on that cost] or any other unexpected expenses [i.e. I don’t know if I will check a bag or not]. But anyway, $670.62! That’s quite a bit and yet not much when you think about attending a conference. SO, here is how you can get exposure and I can make my way to the conference. Each of these ad options will run through the END OF THE YEAR on my sidebar. That’s up to 6 months of ad space! These ads will be placed directly under my welcome image in the sidebar before pretty much everything else over there :) Read each opportunity below :)


My stats are as follows:

  • Total social media accounts (Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram) reach: 2000+
  • Average over 13,000 pageviews a month and 6,000 unique pageviews a month
