    I missed it too! So sad. It was such a great place to go and reflect, unwind, relax. We all need to remember to put how much we missed it when we do our conference survey.

    For the past few years they've had a place they called the Dream Room. There was a path that had large posters with ideas for dreams--trips, new levels of achievement, etc. After you walked the path there were comfy chairs to sit in and dream. People were waiting near the exit for you to tell your dreams to. It was nice, and it was a good place to get away from some of the noise and chaos.

    I realized it wasn't there. I can't say I was horribly disappointed it wasn't there, but I enjoyed it when it was.

    Budget cuts? That wasn't the only thing cut from previous years.

    For first-timers, it was an area near the booths that was like a big indoor tent. It was kinda dark inside (low lighting), soft music, with inspirational testimonials from people, cozy chairs for nappy and dreaming. I buzzed through it so my memory is faulty. It was supposed to get you inspired and to figure out what your "why" is and where you want to go with your biz.

    We should be getting an email for a survey after conference. Make sure you let them know!

    Yeah, I wondered where it was too.
    I figured it was probably due to budget cuts as well.
    I skimmed through it last year, but I was kind of hoping for it this year, since we didn't do the HO tour, but got there early to hit the Merrill booth - I was hoping for a place to relax!! Oh well.

    I never used it to "dream", but it was a nice quiet place to go and sit in a comfortable chair and relax/nap!
