Behind the Scenes Organization
When you watch a Broadway show, you never know all the work that goes on behind the scenes to make it a success. Even with world class actors, without the director, stage managers, musicians, lighting designers, set designers, and costumers, the show could not go on!

Similarly, being a blogger takes countless hours of work that your reader never sees. In fact, it’s like running a magazine, but doing it all on your own gets overwhelming. You probably feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to keep up! We’ll walk you through action-oriented things you should be doing to track, manage, and strategically plan every aspect of your business…past, present, and future, and we’ll teach you how to organize all it all without losing your mind!

Breakfast and Keynote
Pair the most important meal of the day with some inspiration; you're off to a great start to your day!

First, we will be entertained by Cheri Magill. Cheri is a singer/songwriter, mother of three, and retired blogger. Back in her blogging days Cheri attended Snap in its very first year as a speaker. She ran a blog called “I Am Momma Hear Me Roar” and loved the online community of makers. After blogging a few years she stepped away. She continued to create and share her work but in a different way, by returning to her musical roots. Cheri recently released an album called “Tour Guide.” The album is like a musical documentary about motherhood, with songs that will tug at your heart strings and songs that will make you laugh.

Then hear from Shelbey Lang, Artisan and Programs Manager for Craft Lake City, a non-profit arts organization based in Utah. Craft Lake City's mission is to educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art. In her role, Lang curates community craft workshops and manages hundreds of artisan exhibitors at the Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival, Utah's largest, three-day, local-centric arts festival. Lang holds a degree in Art History from the University of Utah and has been working in the nonprofit arts sector for more than a decade.

Dinner with the Boise Boys
Best friends and home renovation experts, Clint Robertson and Luke Caldwell, are breathing new life into Idaho’s capital city one home at a time in HGTV’s hit series Boise Boys. Often referred to as “the Odd Couple of home renovation,” business partners and entrepreneurs Clint and Luke are an unlikely pairing that just works.

In 2014, Clint and Luke met through a mutual friend. The duo immediately hit it off and soon after they purchased a home together to renovate. After a few successful remodels, their partnership was forged and Timber + Love, their realty and home design business was born. It is headquartered in a 14,000 sq. ft. warehouse in downtown Boise along the iconic river.

As partners, the pair’s personalities and skills complement each other perfectly: Luke approaches design with fun, spontaneity and a talent for gracefully marrying the past and present, while contractor Clint is a can-do real estate businessman who keeps a firm eye on the construction and budget bottom line. The guys’ chemistry is a hit with viewers: during its first season Boise Boys pegged impressive viewership numbers and helped HGTV consistently rank as the No. 1 cable network among upscale women 25-54 in the Thursday 11 PM time slot.

After a successful Season 1 produced by High Noon Entertainment (Fixer Upper, Cake Boss), HGTV ordered 13, hour-long episodes which follow the pair as they renovate dilapidated properties into resale-ready homes. While their business is booming, family always comesfirst for this dynamic duo. The highly anticipated Season 2 of Boise Boys will premiere in April 2019.

Podcasting is one more thing that we're "supposed to do" as business owners, but it is intimidating. Come remove some of the intimidation factor by visiting with two podcasting veterans: Winter Redd and Sharon Titus. They'll be covering 1) the variety of basic podcasting equipment, 2) recording with workshop attendees a mini-podcast session, 3) discussing about how to edit with a couple of editing softwares, and 4) how to go about publishing that episode using a podcasting host. Beware, they love to challenge our attendees to set a goal launch date for their own podcasts!
