Los Angeles, CA--  My philosophy is, It's all about what you do next. We've all had to dig deep the past two years to find new ways of enduring, loving, and thriving, and once you've grieved yesterday, it really is about what you do next.
In that spirit, I am excited to announce our first annual participation in the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles, CA, February 4th-6th, 2022! You can drop by and see us at booth #802 in the Plaza Ballroom and come to our free lecture on "Starting a Conscious Business", on Sunday evening (6th) at 5 PM PST in Century A. Also, we've got several members speaking in lectures, workshops, and panels so make sure you check them out in the guide link. (Everything will be simulcast for those who aren't local.) For those of you in Los Angeles (or members appearing in the expo), we still need volunteers to tend the COVR table so please let me know if you can donate a few hours to the cause. (You'll get free entrance for your trouble.) Or, you can purchase tickets here.

The 2022 COVR Visionary Awards opened for early entries on January 1st and it's been amazing! (Click here for this years categories)

As you know, each year we allow our Visionary Partners and Patrons who've been nominated for awards to send one email to our membership, letting them know about the product up for an award. We ask you for your patience and enthusiasm in receiving these emails as it is an exciting time of the year for all the entrants to showcase their hard work. The "email season" is temporary and you can expect to hear from them through May. We are grateful to you in advance.

As always, if you have any ideas for COVR or needs for your business, please respond to this email with a note!

Warm regards,

Tracee Dunblazier
President, COVR
Omaha, Nebraska--  We’ve had a fantastic start to the 2022 COVR Visionary Awards! It’s exciting to see all the creative work coming in from the Mind/Body/Spirit community. Last year set a record with the number of entries and we’re already on track to shatter that number this year! As you’re considering your entries, I just wanted to offer a couple of reminders.
First, don’t forget that the early-bird entry period ends January 31st. This is something new we’re offering for 2022 so be sure to get the forms and payment submitted soon to take advantage of the special pricing! Secondly, after you’ve submitted the entry form, be sure to get your samples mailed in quickly to avoid getting caught up in any shipping delays.

Select Audio & Visual categories that feature digital-only formats, need only to submit a working link to verify eligibility. However, if your entry is available anywhere commercially in a physical format, then a sample copy will need to be mailed in still regardless of which category is entered. Once your sample is received and verified then your entry is complete.
If you have any questions or need any assistance with the entry process, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at alex@covr.org and I’ll do my best to help. Good luck and get those entries in!

Warm regards,

Alex Fernandez

How Participating in Trade Shows Help Your Business
by Robert Quicksilver, Conscious Life Expo, Los Angeles CA
Marketing your product or service is as important as the product or service itself. Having a great idea for a product, or feeing the urgency to share your vision through lecturing and speaking, is a good starting point, but how do we go from the ‘ idea’ of a new product or service to manifesting a successful business?
