Amber Housley Inspired | Top 5 Reasons Why You Need to Go!

As I'm sure many of you can relate, it has been hard to pull myself away from the news these past few days. I've had CNN live streaming all morning while trying to get some work done. All of what I have to do is so trivial compared to what is going on in the world, but life goes on and there is work to do! Prayers being lifted up for everyone in Boston!

On a lighter note, I wanted to share about an opportunity that has played a huge part in my business growth. Last year I had the opportunity to attend the very first Amber Housley Inspired workshop (my recap). As I've said before, in the beginning of 2012 I decided that I was going to make my dreams come true and I was no longer going to think of my business as a hobby. Come March, I attended AH Inspired and it was a huge turning point for me and my business. I've had several people email me asking about it and so I thought I would share my top 5 reasons why you need to attend!

Registration is now open and the earlybird rate ($729) is available through June 15th. There is also a scholarship opportunity and if you are considering attending the summit I highly recommend you head on over and apply!! You will not regret it!

Top 5 reasons to attend AH Inspired:

01. Amber. Not only is Amber sweet as she can be, but she is so willing and passionate about helping other creative entrepreneurs. I have been so blessed to have known her this past year and I'm thankful that I have someone to look to for guidance and inspiration.

02. The speakers. The speakers were FABULOUS when I attended a year ago. I have made so many friendships and connections because of them and just to be in the same room and soak up all of their knowledge was amazing! I've been able to work with Courtney of Pizzazzerie and because of her have had my work featured on the Huffington Post blog! How crazy is that? If you haven't checked out the line up for this year yet, do yourself a favor. My jaw dropped with excitement! I'm hoping to be able to return as an alum because it is going to be stacked with amazing women that I admire and would love to learn from!

03. The content. I was challenged not only to evaluate my business but also to look at myself and what I valued. There were a variety of topics that were covered and the content has just grown and improved since I first attended. The workshop is now two days so it is filled to the brim with helpful and inspiring information. They'll give you the tools and confidence you need to run your business. Amber is on top of all the cool apps and websites that help you smoothly run your business!

04. The Facebook group. This has been such a great resource of information. Anytime someone has a question, all they have to do is go to the Facebook group and ask. Shortly after another group member will have an answer. There are so many talented women who have attended AH Inspired that are involved in all different fields (stationery, blogging, cooking/baking, party planning, photography, etc.) so you get advice from all different angles. It's also a place where we lift each other up when a goal has been accomplished. Just launched your new website? Tell your AH Inspired friends. They will be your biggest cheerleaders. Just to have the support from other creative entrepreneurs is worth attending.

05. The community. I can't say enough about this. I do not know what I would do without the connections I made at AH Inspired that day. I have made even more connections with other women through those that I met through the experience. I now am part of a Stationery Designers of Nashville group that was started by two AH Inspired attendees. It has been so nice to be able to connect with people who just get what I do and who have a passion for it as well. If I got nothing out of the experience except for the friends I made, it would be worth it. Way worth it.

I can not say enough about Amber or her workshop. It really was an important part of my journey and I will always remember it as a huge factor in how I've made (and will continue to make) things happen. If you own a creative business or dream of doing what you love, I highly recommend attending. And don't forget to apply for the scholarship! :)

If I haven't convinced you already or if you have any questions, just shoot me an email! I could go on and on about the whole experience!
