2010 Women’s Conference Main Event is Today

October 26, 2010

We totally enjoyed yesterday’s session of the 2010 Women’s Conference in Long Beach, CA. We didn’t get tickets again (last year we missed out, too) so we are logged in to the White House blog site to get the streaming from the main day of the women’s conference to our conference room at work. You can do so from here. I have enclosed the blog from the White House here: Women’s Conference Live Streaming

I hope you are able to watch at least some of it because it is truly an awesome experience.

Unconditional Love – Warren Buffett Credits His Father

July 8, 2010

One of Grandpa Ron’s most favorite people is Warren Buffett. I also thoroughly enjoyed his comments at the 2008 Women’s Conference. He is another person who stands out as a mentor and teacher for more people than he’ll ever personally know that he’s helped. This interview posted by Willow Bay (Anna Robertson and Erin Green produced the interview for Yahoo! News.) highlights his attitude and approach for life. In an exclusive interview with Yahoo! News and The Huffington Post, “he credited his father for teaching him how to live, and explained that all parents can make a “better human being” by offering their children unconditional love.”

Enjoy! Buffett Recounts the Best Advice He’s Ever Received

No Tickee, No Attendee

June 23, 2010

We never got into the site to get a ticket for the Women’s Conference! Three of us tried separately at 9 am and patiently awaited the magical moment when the auto-refreshed screen would tell us our place in the queue but none of us got into the queue! By the time I noticed my url was dead (and so was Leslie’s) and I went to another computer to try again at 9:50 am, the Main Event (Tuesday) was already completely sold out!

So we are signed up one more year for Monday only. Guess we’ll reserve the conference room for the webcast again. I’m actually not as upset as I was last year about not getting tickets because the webcast option is excellent. We still get the main stage presentations even if we don’t get to choose the side sessions that get televised.

It looks like they tried their best not to overrun the servers by shutting down the rest of the site (the links and all) but I bet they still were swamped given what happened to us…. oh, well….

I’m In The Picture!

June 22, 2010

Hey, cool! I’m in the picture of participants for the Day of Transformation at last year’s Women’s Conference. I hope to be one of the lucky ones tomorrow to get in to the Women’s Conference site to get tickets for this year’s conference. Even though it is shortly after our wedding, I want to attend. Every year that I was able to participate has been so totally awesome! The speakers are always so insightful and totally special people! The webcast was so good last year that I will still look forward to that if I am not able to get tickets for the main day.

I feel lucky, though, because the theme is the same as our wedding theme: “It’s Time!” Also used frequently are the good words about nurturing Mind, Body and Spirit – and Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too won the Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit category of the International Book Awards and was a finalist in the Children’s Mind/Body/Spirit category of the National Best Books 2009 awards. It feels like a good omen for success!

What is a Minerva Moment

May 7, 2010

I received an interesting and thought-provoking email from the people behind the Women’s Conference and I decided to share it with you. I really, really like the Women’s Conference website. I really respect Maria Shriver and all she does to better the world we live in.

From the email:

What A Great Day!

November 6, 2009

Today is a very special day for me! I received a gracious thank you note from Maria Shriver for giving her a copy of Grandpa, Do It! I Do It, Too! at the 2009 Women’s Conference! If you follow my blog, you will see here that I think she is a very special person. I am so honored! She liked it!

Kudos to womensconference.org

The 2009 Women’s Conference is (for yet another year) a totally awesome experience – even as a webcast!

Yesterday was fantastic -we were there in person. Today is/was as well! We are watching the webcast from a conference room at work. The conference attendees are moving to their breakout sessions right now, so the webcast is on hold. This is after the very moving story by Maria Shriver about her mother’s last days and the panel of Maria, Elizabeth Edwards, Susan Saint James and Lisa Niemi (Patrick Swayze’s wife) about grief, healing and resilience. Wow!

Check out the website because there are lots of clips, photos and streaming available!
