Senior Online Summit 2020 (BS)

(referred by Brittni Schroeder)

$199

A note to attendees:

2020 has been a heck of a year and it’s not even over yet! With all of the world on lockdown, small businesses like ours in the senior photography industry have not seen a lot of forward movement. We sat with our planners, journals and notebooks at the end of 2019 and wrote down all of our dreams and aspirations for 2020 only to be met with having to push those goals further and further back and for some of us, without a deadline at all.

Last year, I introduced our industry to the Senior Online Summit not knowing what 2020 would bring. Over 700 of our industry photographers joined us at SOS and I am even more excited to offer it this year. Why? Because I consider this year’s SOS forward movement… even if it’s the only forward movement we’ll see this year. It’s our chance to attend a conference (even if it’s from our couch), our chance to come together in a like-minded gathering space (even if it’s in a FB group), and our chance to be inspired to create goals once again.

2020 has been dark… and I’m hoping that this year’s SENIOR ONLINE SUMMIT will be a light in our industry until we can meet and be together in educational events again. So without further adieu, I would like to introduce you to the 2020 SENIOR ONLINE SUMMIT speaker & program line up!

TESTIMONIALS

“THIS WAS BEYOND AMAZING!!! More than I could have ever asked for for the price! I have taken MANY summits and this one by far was the best I have ever “attended.” As a single mom, I am limited on funds and time and I cannot travel, so summits like this are the core of my educational foundations.”
