4 Reasons Why You Should Attend a Business Conference

“The capacity to learn is a gift, the ability to learn is a skill, the willingness to learn is a choice”

by Brian Herbert

As an Entrepreneur, I use to feel I had to do everything by myself, but those days are over.  I went to Houston Texas for a business conference, with the expectation of learning new skills for my business, but boy did they over deliver.

Here are my 4 Reasons Why You Should Attend Your Business Conference:

1. You get a chance to learn from the best 

It is such a privilege to be a part of the Team NEOS Family, which stands for “No excuses only solutions”. No one is perfect, we all make mistakes, but people share these experiences, so you can avoid those mistakes.  You are equipped to make better business decisions because people are so willing to share.  There were millionaires who talked to you during breakfast, outside on breaks, even happy hour.  Golden nuggets.

2. You make connections and build relationships

This is truly the best time to chat with other business people.  You can build relationships that can last a lifetime, extended family or future business partners.

3. You learn about the industry you are involved in

Whatever business, you never want to be caught by surprise or feel unprepared.  This industry I’m involved in is E-commerce, changes happen all the time.  You can learn how to plan for seasonal purchases, where to get your inventory, how to scale up your business.

4. Inspired to take action

The biggest benefit is the inspiration you get from hearing the stories of other Entrepreneurs.  The struggles as well as the accomplishments will give you new ideas that you implement, as soon as you get back to your room.

When you get back home, it’s on!

I learned, I cried, I laughed.  I made new friends, and re-connected with old friends.  Ready to take my business to the next level.

Mastering Your Craft Brings You Wealth For a Lifetime

I wanted to post my results for 2016 sales, showing what can happen while learning to master your craft.  There are fees for doing business with Amazon, my profit was 50% of the product sales, so worth it because they do so much of the work for you.

Looking forward to tweaking my skills for 2017 with my E-commerce training.

This is my tool of choice for pursuing my passion, and its just the beginning.  I will continue this journey and grow through the process.

How Do You Find Your Passion and Fuel It?

passion

 

What brings a smile and makes you feel happy every time you do it?

What natural, effortless talent or skill do you have?

What is the one thing you could do every day, and not get tired or bored doing it?

If you can identify the answer to these questions, it will lead you to your passion.

Since you have now identified that talent or skill, take a few minutes and think of ways to monetize your expertise.

You can talk and share your expertise through blogging, videos, ebooks, and the process of fueling your passion into profit begins.

People are looking for things like, how to take better iphone pictures, how to properly apply eye shadow, how to plan for early retirement, how to cook low fat meals.  You can be that person with the answers.

This is just a quick overview, to get you started on this wonderful journey of finding the ultimate plan for living your passion, and getting paid doing what makes you happy.

From personal experience, I had to take an early retirement, from teaching, to provide home care for both of my parents. Searching for ways to supplement my income, I took my talent of photography and my love for shopping to start a business from home.

Its a great feeling to share the shift that has taken place in my life, because so many people are looking to do the same.  This will always be a work in progress and you must continue to perfect your craft, whatever it is.

Just know that its all up to you to figure it out, conquer the fear, and take the first step.  We are here to help you.
