USA ADHD Conference – Here I come!
Have you ever had a time that you just get up one morning and then decide to do something crazy? Well I did about 8 months ago and I put myself out there to apply to be a speaker at a big conference in the USA. My heart and stomach nearly jumped though my mouth when I submitted the application.
A few months later I received a reply but unfortunately, I wasn’t chosen to be a speaker. That’s OK, I decided to continue with the goal of being an international speaker another time but go to the conference anyway. I took it as a great learning opportunity and then changed the outcome for the good anyway, something we should teach our children to always do.
Fast forward to yesterday and I boarded a flight to LA ready to attend the conference.
After a long 13 hour flight with only about 2 hours sleep (I am terrible sleeping on planes) I eagerly arrived in America ready to register for the conference.
I diligently picked up my registration pack and started highlighting all my sessions. After getting excited about what I had registered for those many months ago, I decided those that I would share that excitement with you can give you a sneak peak of what I am attending and what I will share with you over the coming weeks.
