Another successful Toss The Bouquet in the books! I enjoyed networking with so many people AND being challenged in different arenas of my business! Can’t wait to see the speaker line up for next year! And a little birdie told me there will be another one! So be sure to check out www.toss-the-bouquet.com if you want to attend next year!

with love,

Kenny
