Size Overrated Week.jpg

Update: 08/07/2020

This year has been one heck of a year with Covid-19.  With the ongoing health, and safety concerns, plus recent restrictions that started August 1st in the Hampton Roads area implemented by our governor, we have decided to switch our conference from being in-person to now being a virtual event on September 12th.  This means we will not be having the show at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.  Instead you will be able to enjoy the amazing event from the comfort of your homes!  Our line up will be as follows:

·         We will kickoff the event with DJ Bobby D on the turn tables. Plus we have other great entertainment in store throughout the event

·         "You Hold The Power" keynote message will still be given by  author and motivational speaker Florenza Lee!

·         We will be acknowledging all honorees and having them make their acceptance speech.

·         Panelist will kick off the discussion about Love, Life, and Health in today’s world.

·         Be on the lookout for upcoming social media contest all the way up to the event that will include prizes and giveaways!

·         You will have the opportunity to interact with us during the event by engaging in our live chats, polls, and more!



Q:  With you not having the event in person, will we be refunded?

A:  Yes, we will be refunding attendees their money back.

Q:  How long will it take to receive our refunds?

A:  Give us 14-20 business days to issue out refunds.  If you paid your registration fee through Eventbrite, the refund process will go through them and money will be issued to the payment method you used through them. 

Q:  As an honoree will we still be receiving an award?

A:  Yes, we will be either delivering or mailing out your awards to you. On show day (September 12th) we will be honoring you all and you will have the opportunity to give your two-minute speech live.  If you are an honoree please email me your mailing address no later than August 21st. 

Q: Will there be a fee to be a part of the virtual event?

A:  The first 100 guest that register will be able to be a part of the virtual event free.  After the initial 100 people registered, there will be a $10.00 registration fee

Q:  Can anyone register to attend the virtual event?

A:  Yes, the awesome thing about going virtual is that anyone from around the country can watch if they register.

Q:  How do we register?

A:  Since you have an existing registration, we will start the transition and register everyone starting August 13, 2020.  So be on the lookout for emails and updates around that date.  

Q: How do we watch the event on September 12th

A:  To experience this event please download Zoom to your laptop, desktop, or mobile device by going to  The Zoom link will be distributed to registered attendees starting 2 days prior to the event.



As we adjust and get use to new norms we pray that you all stay blessed and safe!  We look forward to having you be a part of our first ever virtual event on September 12, 2020 starting at 3pm!

Hello to all!

This email is to inform you that with Trump declaring a National State of Emergency today due to the coronavirus outbreak, The City of Hampton has shut down all government buildings for at least the next 10 days.  This means our event scheduled for next Saturday March 21, 2020 had to be rescheduled to a later date. We are making an exception to our refund policy.  If there is a schedule conflict with the new date we will offer refunds for the next 30 days until April 13th.  After April 13th no refunds will be given.  You can contact us via email with your request.    


The new date for our SO Conference 2020 will now be on September 12, 2020.  All registrations will be transferred to this new date.  We are expecting to still have a phenomenal show that will be even better!  We look forward to having you be a part of this new date.  We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding in this matter.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us!  See you in September!   


With Warm Regards,


Ariel Cary
