This week I received an email that told me I fulfilled a professional goal – getting a panel proposal
I'm a huge fan of the conference Phil has created and grown so to have this be my first public speaking gig is fantastic.
What makes this opportunity even sweeter is the supportive and knowledgeable bloggers that will be on the panel.
We are all excited to be a part of this conference and want to help others any way that we can.
I want to say thank you to everyone who helped me and that especially includes all of you who are reading this site and/or listing to the podcast.
