    I adore this woman but too many work and mummy commitments to go.

    Did anyone take the opportunity to attend?

    What were some of the highlights, learnings?

    Hey, I didn't attend unfortunately but some colleagues did. She talked about her story. My colleagues thankfully came back driven to widen their options in life. I saw them enrolling on to courses that would take them in different career directions, and looking at options to be more in charge of work decisions.

    Too positive for my taste. I prefer a good Jerry Springer incest special.

    Damn - people are saying she was very good but I was hoping for specific insights from one of the richest women in the world right on this forum.

    I am simply a fan because of her background, how many people come from poverty, black, female and achieved what she has achieved.


    She has also made many people rich along the way.....let me think, here are just some
    Dr Phil
    Dr Oz
    Her cook... Rachel xxx (written book, own show, promoted by Oprah)
    many, many more, cant recall their names though..damn

    MTR:)

    Yeah...um; easy to say when you are richer than God.

    My best life would be; with a 100 sq mansion on top of a cliff, infinity lap pool with spa, pool house and all the other whizbangs, overlooking Port Philip Bay from the Heads around to Mt.Martha and beyond, no neighbors for at least 50m in any direction, a 50 ft cruiser moored at Martha Cove and a few $bill in the bank, a DB10 and an Audi Q7 in the driveway, maybe a Landcruiser for serious off-roading, a coupla Harleys and jet skis for fun, etc, spend days helping the needy, playing golf, sailing the cruiser and throwing lavish parties on board; or maybe back at the pool house?

    Not quite living my best life.

    I'm going to this on Saturday in Sydney @Xenia - my partner idolises her and listens to some form of Oprah most days and tells me the latest and greatest on whats going on with her.

    She doesn't know that we're going - i may need to get some protective headgear and ear drums, am pretty sure she'll turn 13 again, start screaming and tackle me to the floor in genuine excitement when she realises where we are. I wish i could somehow score a personal meet - now that'd be some present!

    Will report back on how it goes (hopefully without scars!) :)
