800-CEO-READ Author Pow Wow – Update and Thank you

Earlier this week, I attended the Author Pow-Wow event organized by 800-CEO-READ. When I signed up, I didn’t know what to expect (I had not attended the first such event last year) but I knew it was going to be great. I think GOD saves the best for the last. I have to say that this was by far the BEST event I attended this year.

When the conference ended on day two, the only sad part was that it ENDED.

Here are all the people that attended and my thanks to all of them for being there and giving their best
