World Domination Summit, Portland, OR

As I mentioned in the Portland post, we specifically planned our travel route for this Adventure around the World Domination Summit. For years we have been wanting to attend this event, but have never been able to make it happen because of the timing and photographing weddings! This year, we were making it happen!

Ryan went to Jonathan Field’s session and I went to a session on becoming an author and getting published!

Wowzers! That meant that we were speaking in front of over 3,000 people! Did I mention I have a fear of Public Speaking!?!? ;) Ohh well- it was happening! And what an incredibly AMAZING opportunity! This is what the run through looked like the day before.

Sharing our story in 2 minutes on a stage in front of 3,000 people was so nerve racking, but probably one of my favorite moments of 2015! Fear of public speaking conquered! ;)
