You know the phrase “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”?  Well I am going to break that rule, and share with you some of the top tips I learned from attending the Charles Poliquin Bio-Signature Conference in Las Vegas.

OK, so this is not really exciting when it comes to all the ‘badness’ in Vegas, but hey, I am a fitness nerd. 🙂

This was the first Bio-Signature Convention and Charles brought in a wide variety of speakers on a different topics.

It was a fantastic weekend.

I learned a ton of new information I can use in my life, with my clients and in my business.

I wanted to share with you 10 tips from each expert so that I can share the information I found helpful with you.
