Skeptic to believer
"I have to admit that I came to this retreat a little skeptical. I've been to a lot of conventions over the years. My feeling has always been that if you learn one new thing, then it was worth the money and time and I figured I would have at least one takeaway and it would be worth it. I feel this past week has been transformational (if that is a real word). There were so many things I learned - about my business, about myself, and what I am capable of. The unique format made learning easy and the availability of the instructors made asking questions and follow-up easy. Thanks, Joette Meyers Giardina for a great learning experience."
Debby Levi, Inflated Creations
You are worth it!
"If you are not sure if you should come to a Summit, I encourage you to set aside the time, set aside the funds to come to the next event. It's powerful, the people that you meet, the lessons that you learn, the skills that you get to take away are worth it, You are worth it, Invest in yourself and your business."
Stephanie Cofield, Celebration Creations
Changed my business & life
"I rarely share much, but I woke up this morning with the intention to post this. Almost 2 years ago I attended Summit after only being in business six months and it completely changed my business and life. Not only in two years did I start and grow a successful balloon business but I tapped into a side of me that was dormant for so long, creativily.

Leaving Summit I was very clear about my target customer....schools and universities. Although I took on other jobs as a way to survive social distancing, I kept my eye on the prize.

Tomorrow I will proudly sign a contract for my largest gig to date. My company will officailly become the event decor provider for a local universities football games for the entire season. This deal will officially push my company over the 200K mark for this year and we still have a quarter to go.
