Episode #85 // Organizing and Attending Conferences & Retreats with Kristy Oustalet

Today we want to talk about conferences, retreats, and the importance of OFFLINE connections! We’re talking about what it takes to put on your own conference or retreat – and we thought we’d invite our friend Kristy Oustalet on to chat with us about this. We first met Kristy when she attended our very first Being Boss Vacation in NOLA. She runs her own conference in New Orleans called VenturePOP and offered some generous guidance to us newbies that we want to share with you all!
