After attending a conference recently, I am back and brimming with energy and ideas. See this face? This is the face of a happy, refreshed woman. If you’ve never invested in your own business education, you really should. I can’t say it strongly enough – DO IT!!
It’s hugely energizing to be surrounded by people from all over the world who are passionate about their work. We were all there to learn, grow, and even… *gasp* share! People hold their cards pretty close to their chest around here, as though the pie isn’t big enough, but it was not like that at the conference. People shared information. Strategies. Ideas. What works for them. How they deal with different challenges. It was awesome.
I came away encouraged, and equipped. For one thing, it’s refreshing to benefit from others in your field. I even hear the same thing about this blog. I’m told what I say and do, and my openness about it all, is refreshing and encouraging to those who read it. I get it – that’s how I feel when others are open with what they know too.
Need to be reinvigorated in your business? Attend a conference. Go to a seminar. Invest in your education. (And for goodness sake, get out and meet other professionals! The pie is much bigger than some would have you believe!) You won’t regret it. If it does nothing for your business (which is near impossible) it will definitely do something for you. And that’s an investment worth making.
If you would attend a seminar or workshop, (work related or not) what topic might interest you?
