An Encouragement

Whew!  As you can see this post is a day late.  I’m still catching my breath and catching up on my missed emails from being at She Speaks.  After thinking last year that it really can’t get any better, it was the most fabulous one ever .

Honestly, I’m telling you, start saving your pennies for next year.  I was so thrilled to have one of the women in my speaker coaching group stop by the Next Step table to chat.  She told me how her initial reaction at the cost of the conference was a little shock , but then she continued, “Now that I’m here, I’m shocked at how much I’m receiving.  Everything is excellent–the breakouts, the keynotes, the food, the hotel.  This is worth every penny.”  This is a woman who then told me that she’s on a fixed income, so it meant the world coming from her.

AND…you never know who will be there…and will be in your speaker coaching group…


 Me and Mandisa

Next week, I’m going to share my favorite reminder from a breakout.  It’s the one thing that’s key to an effective message, so don’t miss it!  But now go open your special savings account.  I want some face-time with YOU at She Speaks next year.

  1. I sure enjoyed meeting you at SheSpeaks and you can bet I am coming back to
    SS2014, Lord willing! It was phenomenal! (truly one of the highpoints of my life)

    I bought Andy Stanley’s book about communication because of your
    recommendation and it is phenomenal.

    I love the new look of your website.

  2. Amy, it was MY pleasure to meet you at SheSpeaks 2013. I hope that I can work with you soon – I so appreciate your website and helpful hints. Blessings to you!

  3. Ditto! It is an investment to go to She Speaks. And a terrific follow up is Next Step. In fact, I love what Tanya shared…that her hubby gave her Next Step services as a Christmas present last year. How awesome is that! In addition to being a bunch of smart, talented, generous coaches, you’re some of the nicest most encouraging people I know. What a blessing!!

    Hey Amy! I’m right there with you, trying to regroup after the amazing weekend. It was great seeing you and I’m glad we got to meet in person this year. How cool that Mandisa was in your group!

    For the ladies who have never been to She Speaks, I wholeheartedly agree with Amy. It is worth every penny, and if you are an aspiring speaker or writer looking for tools to equip yourself with on the journey, this is an investment that will pay dividends all year long. Start saving now, ask for contributions to your She Speaks fund instead of birthday or Christmas gifts, etc. It really is the best gift you can give to yourself and your ministry.

    Already counting down the days until She Speaks 2014. 🙂
