Camp GLP, short for Good Life Project, is a 3-and-a-half-day excursion to Iroquois Springs Camp in Rock Hill, New York.

    Camp GLP sounds interesting. I am also as excited with Author Marketing Live as it is an event that showcases talent.

  2. Wow seems like interesting seminars are coming up to help small businesses grow faster, as these events shouldn’t be missed, rather all enthusiasm needs to shown to be a part of such mega events.
