We are in the final planning stages of announcing our (amazing!) guest and planning for the teleconference seminars. We need about 5 minutes of your time (and trust me, there will be prizes given away randomly to some people who fill this one out!)
UPDATE: Due to how many of you are going to be showing up, and a whole lotta other factors (including we don’t want anyone not able to come due to costs involved for long-distance) we are going to now have our seminars via BLOG TALK RADIO. It’s a piece of cake, really. You will listen to it online so make sure you have your speakers on your compute up and running. We’ll send out more details this weekend!
We are interested in knowing how many “real” conferences you’ve gone to recently; if you still go to full-day conferences; why a telephone conference is “cool” for people with illness and approximately how many seminars you plan to attend.
It will help us… (1) PLAN better! (2) Send out a press release about the uniqueness of planning an event for those with illness so that they can stay in their homes and still hear 20 speakers in one week. I mean, really, how cool is that?
This survey is simple (a lot of “choose 1″ choices) so pleeeease take a moment to fill it out.
When someone tells you that you look great, how do you respond? How does it feel? For some odd reason, though we don’t want to be told we “look as bad as we feel” sometimes it can seem like our pain isn’t being acknowledged. It’s hard when it feels like no one understands how much your life has been impacted by this illness.
We sent out a survey last year and we have over 1000 respondents… but we still want YOUR input, because we are going to sned it out as a new press release in the next couple of weeks.
AND… one of you will be chosen to win a copy of Sherri Connell’s book, “You Look So Good!” [link]
