Once I got off my three hour Delta flight, I was met by my Club Mobay representative and escorted to a small bus, which took me on a breath-taking journey of 140 miles, filled the greenest trees (Acrocomia – to be exact) I’ve seen in a while, beautiful clear ocean water, and people celebrating their culture. This is how I was introduced to RTS Weekend.

During my journey, I found myself sitting across from a beautiful woman, Jody Prendergast. As an inquiring mind, I asked her if she was attending the same event. She confirmed she was, and it didn’t take long for her humble spirit and laid-back ways to quickly intrigue me. I came to find out she was the CEO for her own home healthcare agency and the founder of Essence of a Boss Weekend. Later on, I learned she would be one of the brilliant speakers who would be highlighted during the conference.

After about an hour and a half drive, we arrived at the Moon Palace Resort. A group of helpful staff members greeted us with a flower and fruit drink, and then assisted us to our rooms, kick starting the weekend! The moment I finally entered my gorgeous ocean front room – with a king size bed, brightly colored with an array of green, brown, and white, not to mention the exclusive dining, drinks, and access to everything on the resort – I realized Mrs. Jodianne Murdock, the founder and CEO of Zedoj Events & Weddings, was in fact going to show me an amazing weekend.
