EVO: The Evolution of Women in Social Media!

Me Ra Koh

What are you doing in July?  How about meeting me, plus two amazing Oprah Producers (Jon Sinclair and Andrea Wishom), a few dozen powerful blogging/social media speakers and experts, plus 300 awesome women attendees!  The EVO Conference, a POWERFUL Conference that is all about The Evolution of Women in Social Media, is happening in Park City, Utah!  And I’m crazy excited to be doing one of the three keynotes!

Instead of this being a HUGE blogging conference with thousands of attendees, the EVO Conference takes a different approach.  Last year was EVO’s first year, and Jon Sinclair and Andrea Wishom did the Keynote.  They were so inspiring and awesome that they are back by popular demand, and the authenticity of all the speakers and attendees created an unforgettable conference that was life changing for so many!  Part of the magic behind EVO is that they limit registration to a few hundred (versus thousands) to help nurture some serious sisterhood, networking and CRAZY FUN together!  Seriously, I’m counting the days!  But not just me, our whole family!

Brian and I are going to bring the kids because the masterminds behind EVO (Today’s Mama and Mom it Forward) have thought of EVERY THING that a mom would want for a summer conference which includes the COOLEST DAY CAMP ever for kids!  So while the kids party, dad is going to go explore, hike (pretty much play!) and mom is going to be rocking it with 300 awesome women!

Register Here Today!!

This is the Keynote Speaker line up.  (Yes, I’m elated and incredibly honored!)
