Incorrect info leads to major stress

One of the requirements for running WordCamp is a temporary event license. I needed to get this from the businesses license department of Las Vegas. I went to their website and downloaded the form and was quickly overwhelmed. For some strange reason, instead of tackling the issue, I set it aside and let time roll […]

Building a Las Vegas posse

I think I may be a control freak

I’m not gonna lie, I love to organize events. Normally small events. Poker tournaments, trips with friends to the movies or things like that. But this is the first time I’ve ever taken on an event the size of WordCamp:Las Vegas. If things go well and we manage to sell out, we are talking about […]
