Wow! Convention is almost here. Showtime!! I can’t wait to see your smiling faces there. I can’t remember ever being so excited going into an event with so much to announce and share!
Well It is that time that I personally turn my entire focus to getting people to the convention. You know we have a record number of tickets sold with over 23,000, but with the new 360 degree configuration there are a few hundred seats that we freed up so that new people could get in. That won’t last past this week. But lets make sure there are no unused tickets. If anyone has a unused ticket, please call upline, put it out on chatterbox or your voice mail network and let the events department know because people are looking for them. Read More
