When it comes to knowing how to make new friends, my kids are the gurus. I’ve watched them for years now on the playground… “Hi! Do you want to be my friend?” So when I went to a conference in Vegas last weekend, courtesy of my new blogger friend Corrin and IZEA, it was that image that I held in my mind. At first, I was a little daunted by the fact that I didn’t expect to know a soul there but I reminded myself that it was going to be one giant playground. I was going to meet so many friends… I just didn’t know who they were… yet!
And now I do. I met such amazing and inspiring people… Gail Goodwin who is flying around the world giving hugs with the Global Hug Tour and Angie Swartz, who publishes Six Figure Moms Club. I met Cris from Project Working Moms and Chris Knight from Ezine Articles, Queen Bee Elizabeth Hannan, and Twitter Mayor, Chris Brogan. How did it happen? Pretty much exactly how my kids do it….
My Mommy Manual is helping to promote Gail Goodwin’s inspired idea of spreading hugs around the world. Read more about it here. That’s me and Gail, hugging!
