I’M GOING TO NEW ORLEANS!
Yep! This trip was literally planned one week ago. Crazy, right? But when my friend Kait told me about Entrepreneur Magazine’s Growth Conference, I knew I had to jump at the opportunity to go. This year,the free conference is being held at the New Orleans Convention Center and features speakers such as Amy Cosper, the EIC of Entrepreneur Magazine as well as other Entrepreneur staff members and many other leaders in the industry all ready and willing to help the young entrepreneurs of America grow and learn how to really make it in this crazy world of ours. I figured this would be the networking opportunity of a lifetime — and it’s in New Orleans. For a foodie like myself, that alone is enticing enough!
So while I’m off exploring this amazing city full of art, music and food, I asked some of my blogger buddies to take over for me. I love being part of such a great community of bloggers; we all help each other out whenever we can.
Today I’m excited to introduce you all to another Florida blogger! Betsy writes the blog Desserts Required and she also runs this really cool group called “Road Trips for Food” where she organizes meet-ups at various restaurants in Florida. Want to hear a funny story about Betsy? I’ve mentioned how my mom’s best friend is a massage therapist down here in FL, right? Well, Betsy goes to her for massages! Somehow the food and blogging thing came up during her last massage with Jeanne and the connection was discovered. South Florida really is a small world…
Betsy obviously LOVES dessert and never ends a meal without something sweet, so of course that’s what she is sharing with you all today. Enjoy!
