  1. Oh this is amazing, V! It’s going to be so fun to follow along and get a bit of insight into such an amazing and, from the sounds of it, a very enriching event. Thank you for making it so easy. Now I just need to make sure I’m awake and ready to go at 8am! (I’m very much not a morning girl. Shameless.)

  2. So excited for you doll! Should be done with work and all by the time you go live! I think I’m at least 6hours ahead over here! Sending more hugs to you to share with everyone else when you see them!

  3. I will be eagerly awaiting your panel lovely! I think it starts at 3am my time, so I’m going to have a catnap and then I’ll be watching IFBcon 🙂 I feel so excited haha 🙂 I don’t know if your bag arrived, if not you will get it when you arrive home, I popped a few more goodies in it for you x

  4. Brilliant job Vahni! I unfortunately only caught about half because I had to go rescue a friend whose car wouldn’t start, but you were incredible. You are so poised, well spoken and looked as beautiful as ever. You’re a real inspiration V! Congrats on a job well done. x

  5. Thank you all so much for your sweet comments! I am so flattered. The conference was incredible…gotta get cracking on a post for it now!

  6. Vahni,

    You did a wonderful job from what I saw of the conference. I had to work so I was only able to see part of it. You looked great and did an awesome job moderating and I wish I was able to take notes because the panel made so many good points.

    Does IFB have a place where you can view a replay of the conference on video on their site? I was looking and didn’t see anything.
