Pictures from Willie Crawford’s Birthday Event, Pt 1

Hey all.

So far I have access to only a small portion of the event photos, but, since SOME OF YOU (you know who you are) ๐Ÿ˜‰ — are bugging me about posting them…. here you go:

Elizabeth Ashe (Diva through and through!), me,
Bob the Teacher Jenkins, and Lynn Terry


Elizabeth Ashe, Tracy Roberts, and me.
Kathleen Gage (the book launch queen) is in the background with the cool hair.

Three of the sweetest people you'll ever know.

I appreciate shares and I adore comments! Please share your thoughts.

  • Arika

    You look GREAT! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just like a ROCK STAR. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Everyone looks like they had a wonderful time – so laid back.

  • Mummy

    I see a Rock Star!

  • Joel Osborne

    It looks like you had a great time there Nicole!

    I wish I was able to make it. Here’s an idea… do YOU want a big birthday bash next year for your 25th?

  • Bob The Teacher

    Hey Nicole,
    Boy what a treat it was to meet you in person and hang out with you over the weekend.

    I had to confess to you earlier, before the event I had no idea you existed. And how quickly did we figure out how closely aligned our values and long term visions are.

    Those pics are a lot of fun – thanks for sharing them, and especially thanks to our friend Elmer Hurlstone for making us look good ๐Ÿ™‚

    Bob (The guy offering you the cake above)

  • Corrie

    Nicole – those are great pictures of you guys. Looks like you had so much fun!

  • Elmer Hurlstone


    “I may have pay him off to delete the originals. Hazard pay! EEK!” My PayPal Addy is… ๐Ÿ™‚


    Anyone over 5′-6″ is a “freak of nature.”

  • Sharon

    Woo hoo!! I see Rock Stars Nicole and Tracy!! Looking good ladies ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Lexi Rodrigo

    OMG, Nicole, it looks like you had sooo much fun! I admire your bravery for rooming in with someone you have never met before – even though it is the lovely Lynn Terry. Imagine, both of you in the same room – two of my most favorite and most admired mentors ever!

    Nic, I never imagined you to be so tall, LOL. I’ll meet you in person someday. I just know it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Elmer Hurlstone


    Forgot to say, “You’re welcome”, for your nice comment.


    Now you’re four(?)comments shy of 1,000?

    @Elizabeth Ashe,

    Remember, Lynn Terryโ€“the lady with two first namesโ€“puts on her whatever’s the same way you put on yours. Carefully and stylishly.

  • Nicole

    Lexi –

    I was shaking in my SHOES! I told Tracy “What if she HATES me?” lol.

    After that original moment, we felt like old friends right way. And, yes, the brainstorming pretty much took on a life of it’s own — one of the uppermost Affiliate Marketers on the planet rooming with a pretty awesome Affiliate Manager — with the entire weekend to pick each other brains. Hmm… there’s an infoproduct in there somewhere. lol.

    I’m 5’7″ — not as tall as I look. Tracy’s just that SHORT! ๐Ÿ˜‰


  • Tracy Roberts

    I’m petite not short – lol ;-)and I had on heels, too. I think you did, too, Ms. Nik which made you absolutely amazonian.

    Besides, Elmer took the picture in such a way that surely being in the background made me “appear” vertically challenged.

    Thanks for the luv!

  • Nicole

    lol @JoelOsborne – Uh… you’re late. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And, I can’t lie about my age, because my mom is reading my blog… She was kinda there.

    Thank you my sweet friend! How about we throw a big bash next year to celebrate you reaching your goal of big money by 2010. I have faith in you!!!

  • elizabeth ashe

    Yes, the event was a blast! I have not had that much in a long time. It felt as if I had already known everyone.

    When I met Lynn my hands were shaking at the lunch table, then after that it was all fun.

    I would do it again any day.

  • Arika

    Ya’ll are crackin’ me up over here! So wish I could have made the event, but there’s always next time. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Nicole

    @BobtheTeacher – I felt like we were twin souls the moment we met and you smiled. Your presence just lights up the room. Thanks for calling today. I know that we’ll make the internet a better place — together. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Tracy_Roberts – I can so take you! lol.

    @ElmerHurlstone — Thank God he knows how self conscious I am. He promised to do much editing if needed. I may have pay him off to delete the originals. Hazard pay! EEK!

  • Shannon Smith

    I’m pretty sure hazard pay has to be deductible right? After all it would be a business expense in this case. LOL

    Great photos. Some day, some how, I’m going to meet a few of you. I just know it.

  • Nicole

    @Elmer — I resemble that remark.

    @Shannon – Come on the cruise with us. It’ll be so much fun!

  • elizabeth ashe

    @Elmer – Why thank you Elmer.

  • Tracy Roberts

    I don’t know about anyone else but I’m ready to do it again.

    Cruise anyone?

  • Yvonne Lyon

    Hey Nicole! You say the nicest things. Great to see myself labeled as “one of the sweetest people”. Thanks!

    The weekend was almost as awesome as the people I met. Can’t wait to see you again!

  • Wyteria Jacobo


    This is too funny. We were at the same event and I just now realized it. I think I sat in front of you on Sunday.

    Hey whaddya mean anything over 5’6″ is freak of nature?? Just kidding. I’ve been called Amazon a few times.

    I will definitely get out to more live events in the future. So glad I attended.

  • Jill Pfefer

    Hi Nicole,

    You are so awesome- I love getting your information practically every day! It has helped me with my business tremendously!


  • Gail J Richardson

    I was at Willies BBash and I am just now realizing how many people were there that I didn’t meet. The pictures Elmer took are great and now I have them so I can pick people out.I meet Lynn Terry but was scared to bother her. I am going to NAMS in Alanta and I will not be so backwards about introducting myself to everyone because I want to meet everyone and learn learn learn. See you there
