Surtex 2010 pix

Every trade show feels like a new adventure and Surtex 2010 was a GRAND ONE! My "aunt" Sandy (which no one could believe) accompanied me to New York to help in every way with Pink Light. From Wednesday night to Wednesday night.....we worked hard, laughed often, ate lot of yummy New York food, carried large boxes through busy streets, had lovely meals with treasured clients, made wonderful connections with clients and other agents, met old friends and made new friends, and were basically non stop for 7 days! I can't wait for next year. Perhaps Surtex should be twice a year....:)

Enjoy the pix and thanks so much to "aunt" Sandy. I definitely could not have done it without you!

This picture is very deceiving because it would appear as if we effortlessly arrived at the Javits Center.....Let's just say that the adventure started well before this picture and we had smiles on our faces every moment.
The booth in progress....I love seeing it come to life. All the effort is TOTALLY worth it!
Velcro...duct tape....double sided foam....however we can get our displays to stay up...we tried it all!
Waiting....waiting....waiting...for our shipment to arrive so that we can finish the rest of the booth. :)
End of day 1...waiting for a taxi

Day 2: Wall displays are set....package had arrived...samples displayed...and we're ready for business! :)

I can't go to New York without enjoying a delicious meal at Asia de Cuba. It's my FAV!
Last day of the show...we're all packed up, package is ready for shipment..and we're power shop!!!!

Surtex 2010 Success!

Hello to all of our loyal fans and FABULOUS artists! I just want to say Thank you Thank you Thank you! for all of your support and encouragement this year!!! Surtex was a HUGE success! I am thrilled with how beautifully our artist's work was received. I feel very fortunate to have such a great team of talent!

Every show brings new knowledge and wonderful connections and they are so much FUN!!!! I truly cannot believe it is over and I'm back home! The best word to describe the last week is a "whirlwind"!

I am going to take the rest of May to follow up with clients and artists and we will be back in June with more beautiful posts from Maryah, artist highlights, and stories of successful businesswomen to inspire us all!

Here's a quote I found on one of my "Happy Thought cards" which I always pass out at the shows. It felt perfect because I have felt very blessed the past 6 months to connect with other very successful artist agents who give me great advice and offer their invaluable knowledge. One even mentioned at the show that she is happy to share her advice as she knows there will be many whom I will pass my knowledge on to for years to come. It's about sharing and encouraging. It's truly what makes everything worth while!

"Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well." --Voltaire

A thought...

What matters most in life is not what we's how we do it.

A pink happy thought...

May we do everything with love, ease, and grace.

As I embark on my second year in business, this is my intention.

Thank you to everyone who has supported Pink Light this past year. It has been a great journey and without a doubt, the most intense year of growth and change that I have experienced thus far. I am so grateful.
