To National or Not To National?

That’s the question I’m grappling with these days.

I’ve done three so far – Reno, Atlanta, Dallas. All have been great. I’ve had a wonderful time, learned a lot, networked, networked, networked. I know the networking in and of itself is invaluable, but this year I’m still undecided. The first year I went it was all new and exciting (and Reno was cheap!). Atlanta was worth it because I won the conference registration in a contest and extended my stay to visit relatives in Alpharetta. And Dallas was a yes because I was a GH finalist. This year – San Francisco – is close, but expensive. The conference registration fee is higher, hotel is higher, and since I haven’t sold yet, I’m not sure it’s worth it. In addition to that, as great as Nationals is, the novelty of the whole thing has worn off. Until I sell, I don’t know if it’s worth the money. So I’ve decided to wait another month and see what happens before I make my final decision. I’d love to go…but…but…but…

Yeah. Lots of big ol’ butts in there.

So what about you? Going for sure? Still undecided? Or definitely no?
