On October 6 I decided quite spontaneously to fly to Edmonton to attend a conference. That week-end I spent preparing all the orders of bags, embroidered the bags with the names of the new customers with their names and packing my suitcase. On the morning of Tuesday, October 11, I was sitting in the plane to Canada.

It was a pleasant short trip to the other side of the world, but unfortunately I didn’t see much more than the two shopping malls where I did a presentation of my bags. The rest of the time I spent at the conference, where I learnt a lot about the economy, sales, investing and real estate.

It was so nice to meet all my Canadian friends again after a couple of months and spend a lot of time with them.

I am very grateful to Darren Weeks for making it possible for me to attend this conference and creating another opportunity to present my backpacks on stage to a couple of hundred entrepreneurs.
