This is going to be short and sweet because I’m in Boston for a huge conference with a super busy schedule. I’ve seen Malcolm Gladwell, Tom Ashbrook, Shiza Shahid and a few other amazing speakers, met a inspiring ton of new international educators and had a couple of adventures along the way. The weather is amazing too! I’m looking forward to heading up to Buffalo tonight to spend some time relaxing at home.
On another note, I there’s a new instant download in my Etsy shop: 120 Actionable Social Media, Blog & Other Small Business Promotional Ideas for Makers – June 2015. It was fun to put together, so if it’s of interest to you, enjoy!
What are you up to this weekend?

What an amazing list of speakers!! Hope you’re having a great time. This weekend, I’m laying low and trying to avoid all pollen. My allergies are killing me this year! I’m going to the Flower House in October with a couple friends. So excited to see it in person! xo
