Hola, Como estan?
A big shout out to all the NAHREP community that was able to make it to the regional conference in Anaheim. It was a blast! The vibe was great. As always I made some new friends, learned a ton and got a great lift of energy from the group. This event made me even more FIRED UP for the national conference in Phoenix. If you haven't booked yet, you should get on it!
Also a big felicitaciones/congrats to the local leadership and national support that helped pull this off. It was a fantastic event!
Some of the highlights were...getting the burst of energy from the one and only Tino Diaz. If you haven't heard this guy speak you are missing out. His presence, content, delivery, passion and knowledge will get your attention. Over the past few months I have traveled with him across the US and heard his presention...each time it gets better! He does a great job of tweaking it to the local market where he is.
I enjoyed leading a session about blogging with Ricardo Bueno. It is funny because Ricardo and I had not met until I came down to the conference. I have followed some things he has done in the social media space and I decided to take him out for coffee. I was so impressed with his knowledge I asked him to lead a workshop with me. He was a tremendous asset to the class bringing a lot of real world (virtual world) experience. Thanks Ricardo for your help and I hope we can do it again in Phoenix.
I also enjoyed learning more about a program that Yamila Ayad, NAHREP advisor has co-founded in San Diego. It is a home counseling clinic called Clinica Hogar. She is a tremendous woman. I had the opportunity to talk with her a bit. I filmed our conversation and I will be sure to post that soon.
The number of subcribers to the NAHREP group is growing. If you know someone that would be interested in joining this group, be sure and add them. We are just getting started! Gracias a todos por su participacion.
