Conferences are way more than the speakers on stage, they are a lifeline to others just like you- others who are passionate about the same topics, and are quite possibly in the same stage of their career or entrepreneurship journey.
I’m a builder by trade. I help people and companies think outside the box when it comes scaling their businesses. It is, and will always be, my passion. That said, it’s really hard to find people who are in the same mindset that I am all the time.
Don’t get me wrong, I did 9 years at one of the biggest communications firms in the country, and totally understand the value and security that having a title at a firm provides, but having friends who all do that makes it really hard to find creative energy when you need it. Conferences, mastermind groups, mentorships, coaches, are all my lifelines to step outside the bubble that surrounds in my day to day live.
