My Not So Dirty Little Conference Secret!

Last year on my way to the endless maze that is the Jacob Javitz Convention Center in New York City I ran into a street team passing out 5-hour ENERGY® Samples. They were energetic, enthusiastic and all around nice, so how I could refuse them right?

I put them in my handbag and almost forgot about them. That is until about 3pm, when I realized I had dashed out the door without breakfast, hadn't drank much water and spent the entire day on my feet and still hadn't had lunch. To say I was exhausted was an under-statement. I remembered the sample, but I hesitated. This is the girl who never even tried that little pill that is phonetically similar to 'slow crows' even when cramming for exams in College when it was very popular. I was afraid of the 'crash' I heard these things can cause and as I avoid caffeine on a daily basis (when I do drink soda, it's caffeine free) I was a bit nervous about trying it.

When I realized I was no closer to food and dead on my feet I gave in, and I tried it. I was pleasantly surprised that I found it be very fast acting. I also made sure I stopped and ate something, and bought extra bottled water to get through the rest of the expo. After the expo I had to stop by the office, and after that an evening event, that day was pretty much an 18 hour day, and 5-hour ENERGY® did give me just that extra boost I needed to get through the day without collapsing from sheer exhaustion!

A few weeks later, I had landed an awesome side job, the problem with that side job is that it started late evening, and ran pretty much through the night and I had to be back at work early in the morning. I reached for my second sample and again it got me through a super long day with no crash and no negative side effects. That awesome side job went so well it became a once a week thing for about a year, needless to say I kept myself in supply of my favorite energy drink!

Now I carry one with me every time I have to visit an Expo or Conference, not just at the Javitz but anywhere. I also bring one with me when I have to fly to the West Coast and especially when I fly international to keep myself from getting too tired when I have to be 'on'. Whether it's a presentation or a client dinner. Honestly, even on a vacation with an over-packed itinerary.

5-hour ENERGY® is the first of it's kind that I tried and it worked well for me so I haven't tried any others, but like they say 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it', right?

What's in 5-hour ENERGY®?

The key ingredients in 5-hour ENERGY® are also available in every day foods – like broccoli, avocados, bananas and apples – or already in you. It contains zero sugar, four calories and as much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee. (and for those like me who restrict their daily caffeine intake, there is also available a Decaf Version)

Why try 5-hour ENERGY®?

  • Quick, simple and effective
  • Fast and easy to consume
  • Zero sugar
  • Zero herbal stimulants
  • 4 calories!
  • B-vitamins and amino acids
  • As much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee
  • Also available in a Decaf version
  • Non carbonated

What it DOESN'T?

5-hour ENERGY® does not cure any disease and/or ailments and does not enhance performance. It should not be drank before going to a club/bar and should not be used with alcohol. In addition, 5-hour ENERGY® is not for children!

My Take

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ  - Individual Results Will Vary, but in MY personal experience, it gave me just the boost that I needed. It was fact-acting in my case, and I did not experience any kind of crash after drinking it. I do NOT drink this daily, I use energy drinks very infrequently probably 1-2 times per month, but when I do use them it's 5-hour ENERGY® for me!

Get Social With It!

See you at the BlogWorld New Media Expo Tomorrow!

Last week I co-hosted a Twitter Party (#BWEchat) to help announce that the BlogWorld New Media Expo (#BWENY) was coming to New York City! And soon the big day will finally be here, the Expo begins Tuesday, May 24th and runs through May 26th. You will see Twitter Updates on my Twitter Feed @Tracy_Iglesias and blog updates as time and the wi-fi Gods allow!

For those of you looking for me, my twitter avatar is pretty accurate, except right now I'm sans bangs (Mother Nature is being unusually cruel and cranking up the humidity). I of course will have something 'butterfly' very visible, be it jewelry or clothing. I'll also have my red leather notebook with me, as great as netbooks and laptops are, I still like taking notes retro style!

This is the first time BlogWorld is hitting New York City, and much like last year's BlogHer Conference, I am SO happy to have this conference coming to my backyard! As much as I love to travel, this week I wouldn't have been able to fly out, so to have it here is a huge sigh of relief! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the MTA will be running on time this week, last week with various construction, it took me almost double the time to arrive everywhere than it should have!

I'll be in amazing company, bloggers, writers, podcasters, entrepreneurs and brands and like most conferences, I'm sure it's going to inspire me and turbo charge me into high gear!

The Book Expo is also sharing space with BlogWorld, so I'm looking forward to taking a walk over and checking out The Book Expo as well.

If you are attending and would like to meet up, Tweet Me! (@Tracy_Iglesias)
