Last week I attended Elevate Austin by Design, an interior design conference here in Austin. I was excited to go, but a bit worried because I wasn't sure what I would get out of the day-long event. But my worry was for naught because I walked out at the end of the day inspired and full of new knowledge.

Sometimes it's doing the things that baffle or scare us that will bring us the greatest rewards.

Here are five things I learned at Elevate Austin

: Word of mouth is everything. You can have all the best marketing in the world, but if people talk negatively about you or your services, it will hurt you severely.

: You can store PDF's in iBooks.

: Everyone is affected by the physical space they live in, whether they realize it or not.

: Sometimes having an inspiration board for a project or room will be more harmful than beneficial.

: Always have business cards on hand!
