Tales from the Road: CBWS Heads to the Natural Parenting Store Conference

This past weekend I traveled to Chicago, to the Natural Parenting Store Conference. I had an opportunity to teach a few workshops, deliver a Keynote, and attend some great sessions. It was wonderful to dive so deep into the retail sector and to catch up with a few of you. I thoroughly enjoyed our Friday night CBWS Graduates reunion dinner and drinks!

I had so many great takeaways from this conference, as well as some ongoing questions I will continue live with and work on. Retailers can expect to see these things explored in my Retailer Webinar Series in the near future! Not a retailer?  There will be webinars coming up for you too! 

I hope to continue to update all of you on my travels, whether it be to Foundations and Progression trainings or other fun adventures! Stay tuned for more Tales from the Road!

Until then...have a great day!

For the LOVE of a Rebozo with Gena Kirby

I spent a quiet winter day with a good friend and attending Gena Kirby's rebozo workshop for tips on using the rebozo during labor.  Of course I am interested in the use of a long piece of fabric that can be used as a shawl, a birthing tool, or traditionally as a baby carrier, right?! :-)

The Columbus Whirlwind

We arrived late in Columbus and were up even later getting settled, then we started very early in the morning!  That is the way retail owners have to play ya know.  They have to cram as much into their day as possible, so that is what we did!   We had breakfast, lunch and dinner together each day and that was as much fun as the training. ;-)

I didn't see as much of Columbus as I might have wanted too...but where we were was really picturesque.  The SpoutSoup space is really neat and I am glad we had the chance to all share some time together.

Holistic Moms here in Queens, NY

Here we all are at a local event where parents can come and get to know not only the local Holistic Moms chapter but also the providers in the area.  Isn't the yoga studio beautiful?  You
