Let’s face it. This conference will bring tremendous opportunities to pimp Love Trips: A Collection of Relationship Stumbles as well as my career as a relationship expert and writer. I have to be prepared and stand out. I have to go, go, go…with purpose.
So, here’s how I will prepare for the #LATISM 2012 Conference in Houston. Maybe these tips will also help you!
- Business cards are essential. Luckily, I just revamped mine. I added my website and book title, as well as social media links. Twitter is so important now, especially when attending a conference where social media is not only celebrated but utilized to spread awareness on Latino issues. Now, I just have to print. Vistaprint, that is. It’s a great tool to order business cards and other promotional tools at a low (or sometimes free) cost.
- Get your promo cards. Because there are often brands and companies at conferences. This years #LATISM Conference has huge sponsors, like Johnson and Johnson, Univision, and Toyota. My promo cards will highlight my relationship expertise as well as my book, Love Trips. Who knows? I may get a sponsorship or TV deal out of it! A girl can dream!
- What to wear, what to wear? That is the question on the minds of many trendy females. I want to be comfortable while showing off my sassy, girly, and energetic personality through fashion. Of course, there’s also the need for party outfits. LATISM will have two events where we will salsa and merengue the night away. I cannot forget my dancing shoes and my
freakumsexy yet age-appropriate dresses.
So far, I think I am on track. My business cards will be here next week and I already have an outfit in mind. Cannot wait to go to Houston and make things happen. A girl can dream, but this girl always brings her dreams to fruition.
Tell me, in what ways are you preparing for the 2012 #LATISM Conference in Houston?
