Shayla A. Houston, Texas

Everything was nice, detailed, and giving . Each speaker has given and poured into us. My confidence and drive has been restored after attending this conference. Personally, I've enjoyed every presentation. The conference gave us the what to do and ended what how to keep doing what you're doing on a business level. My favorite has been the scientific explanations from Zuri and Melissa related to technique and pigments. I just loved everyone's presentations not to point one person out or leave anyone out. I'm beyond grateful and proud to have been of the first annual PMUCON .
