Nicola’s Turboboost event will be from March 29th – April 2.

This 5-day event is designed to help give a refresh before gearing into the final weeks of the school term. While it’s 5 days, it will only be 3 hours a day (10 am-1 pm EST), and the guest speaker sessions are 15-minutes so they will be easy to absorb.

My session will be on the final day. It’s called:

Reset and Refresh: Tiding Tips for Studio Teachers

Enjoy a workspace that is always fresh and orderly by implementing a simple, consistent, and sustainable tidying routine. Four specific time points, a small checklist, and an incremental (but minimal) time commitment will be your steps for a well-kept studio.


Read more details and SIGN UP for the event here!*

Use the code PANTRY to get a $10 discount ($59 instead of $69)

*Disclosure: I will also get a very small affiliate percentage back but it doesn’t cost you any extra.

  • Thanks for the mention, Amy! I was so torn about “attending” MTNA this year. There were so many sessions that looked appealing, but since I didn’t plan ahead for it and block off time for a getaway in my schedule, I wasn’t sure I could get in enough to make it happen this year. So, I would love to know what you think of the format and sessions and any highlights/takeaways! Also, I love your overview of how you use Evernote for managing conference info! I use Evernote for so many things, but hadn’t thought to use it for conferences yet. Great suggestion!

    • You know what, Natalie, I’m actually like you! I’m actually not attending the virtual MTNA conference this year. It was a hard decision but for me it was the fact that I’ve attended almost every conference for so many years I was ready for a year or two break anyway.

      I’m so glad to hear you’ve found the information on managing conferences useful – yea! I just love having so many things in ONE place with Evernote!
