This Thursday I leave for Type-A Mom Conference in Asheville, NC and I have a some questions! I know Type-A is considered a “small” conference but it is the largest blogging conference I have been too so it is big to me. I am thankful that HotelsCombined.Com sponsored my conference pass but to be honest the hotel and plane ticket have drained my business bank account and put a large dent in our family account.
Things I still need to figure out:
- How much money do I need for food and what restaurants are in walking distance for the meals that aren’t included in the conference?
- What to wear? Do I need dressy clothes for the evening events?
- What do I need to bring? laptop, business cards, notebook, pens…what else?
- If I can’t find a ride to and from the airport…what is that going to cost me? I think I have a ride from the airport…anyone leaving Monday afternoon? I have a 4:25pm flight.
I know I should probably just relax but a) I am a planner and an organizer so having this many loose ends drives me crazy and b) I honestly have no clue where any “extra” money is going to come from cause hubby hasn’t been paid in months and I don’t get paid again until the first week in October.
Other than the questions I’ve listed above, I am soooooo looking forward to seeing some old friends and making lots of new ones. I am excited to meet some online friends in real life. I can’t wait to learn new things and grow as a writer, reviewer and business owner.
Have you been to Type-A? Are you going this year? Can you answer any of my questions? Are you a business that wants to partner with me, (see my sponsor opps page). Please leave me comments, help me de-stress and prepare for a great weekend of networking with my peers.
