I was fortunate to be able to take part in the inaugural Inspire Smart Success Experience held at the swanky W hotel in downtown Atlanta.  Stacie Francombe from Get Married.com fame has launched a new venture called Inspire Smart Success (ISS). ISS is a mentoring program geared toward the wedding industry professionals. For the experience, Stacie brought together a team of experts that will leave you in awe! The panel provided great information on how to get published in print and on TV.  As most event industry professionals, we all want this inside info and it’s even sweeter coming from some of the best the industry has to offer.

The panel of experts included the following:

Stacie posted on my facebook wall.  “So glad you were able to come! so great to see you and I hope you are inspired to be smart on your journey to success!!!”

Yes, Stacie!!! This was definitely an experience that I have learned from and will use the tools provided to build the LHE brand.  I was definitely inspired to be smart on my journey to success.  Another step to empire building.
