Imagine the Places Your Business will Go: So Much More than We Imagined

Our first live event for family-focused business owners, "Imagine the Places Your Business will Go," held on February 24, 2014, ended up being so much more than we imaged it would be.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs gleaned advice and inspiration from speakers that included; Andrea Barthello and Bill Ritchie, Co-Founders of ThinkFun, a global toy company; Jill Smokler, the New York Times Best Selling Author and mom behind the blog Scary Mommy; Eric Knaus, better Known as The Great Zucchini; Ben Johns, President of SCOUT by Bungalow, the wildly popular lifestyle brand; and Jamie Ratner our founder and CEO here at CertifiKid.

Sponsors provided products, talents and support for the event, making it a truly unique experience. Sign design and printing was provided by Speedpro Imaging of Silver Spring, stage and meeting area decor was artfully created by Tru-B-Loons Events.

Attendees got to show their fun side at XoXo Photobooth Photography & Events.



Everyone was treated to sweet suprises from Tasty Image, Baked by Yael and Carmen's Italian Ice & Cafe. Networking was held over a gourmet lunch featuring the famed sandwiches from The Bean Bag Deli & Catering, which were given some extra pop from a side of PopChips.

Aha! Concepts and Dottie Millwater Photography documented it all for us, and we thank them for sharing.
