I have been dreaming of this conference for 3 years, ever since we first starting getting requests to host one on the west coast.
And it was a weekend to remember, that’s for sure. Nothing ever turns out how you plan it to. Sometimes it turns out better.
Here are a few of the highlights…
Happy hour… this was our first attempt at a happy hour during this conference and it went so well! We served organic, unfiltered and unpasteurized wine from LaRocca Vineyard. We also announced our winners of the GMO Free USA fundraiser raffle during happy hour on Sunday, which included products like Defender Shield EMF blocking cell and tablet cases! Congratulations to the winners – they have all been notified individually.
We always invite a massage therapist for the weekend and this spring, our magical massage therapist, Brandon Gartner, worked out everyone’s kinks and knots. I had about 5 people come up to me and say “he fixed me!”
Our keynote speakers Dr. Levi Harrison and Bryant McGill reminded us of our purpose this weekend – to adopt a lifestyle that is going to make us happy and return us to health.
An upcoming documentary that follows all of the wonderful farmers who are healing our land called “Revolution: Food” raised their KickStarter campaign from $2,000 to $5,000 over the course of the weekend. You can view the trailer and contribute to the campaign here: Food: Revolution KickStarter
Lisa Bronner, from Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps, spoke on our Healthy Business Stage about how to grow a global natural health product business without selling out. I was out in the hallway taking care of a few things during her talk and when I walked back in, Lisa was receiving a standing ovation. I definitely saw some tears in the audience. I’m going to be listening to her lecture from the collection of conference audio recordings on our website this weekend!
The Green Truck and Hit It Up Food Delivery provided delicious and healthy lunches for sale at the conference. Hit It Up is a new healthy salad / food delivery service in LA that brings your meal to you in 20 minutes or less!
My absolute favorite part of the whole conference is meeting all of you in person. We connect online throughout the year, but nothing beats a genuine in person conversation and a hug.
Thank you all for coming to our first west coast conference.
Keep taking back your health,
