Not only did I learn a mountain of invaluable information, but I was so inspired I couldn't sleep. Most importantly I met some of the most amazing, talented, smart, and beautiful ladies (and guys, yes you Brian!) that I hope to be friends and colleagues with for life. I can honestly say that attending Alt Summit was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. 2011 is off to a great start!

HGTV's party was a hit! The dark chocolate fondue was a-ma-zing! Dinner and drinks at Lamb's Grill was a great time to get to know everyone.

So many wonderful sponsors but two of my favorites were: Smock made the gorgeous letterpress menus, and Honda had five cars and five guys getting all of us to and from the airport and all around the city. Thank you!
