10 Reasons Attending Workshops Can Leverage Your Business

September 20, 2012

You know how the internet makes connecting with people that much easier? Well meeting people live–especially the ones you’re getting to know online can do wonders for you and your business.

Last week I attended Alicia Forest’s, “Online Business Breakthrough Workshop” for the second year in a row and boy was it worth every moment. I will recap some of it for you below but I also want to share with you some really important advantages of going to a live event so here goes:

1. Focused Learning

You get to concentrate on you and fill in the gaps of what you feel is missing from your education or business.

 2. Action and Implementation

You get to stretch your mind, hear fresh ideas and then implement them

3. Building Long Term Relationships

You get behind your computer and meet people you ordinarily wouldn’t. Then you share meals, have long chats and get a variety of opinions about your biz, life and otherwise. Here’s a shot with me and some of the most incredible women–most of them I only get to chat with online but got to really know better in person. Now we’re thinking—which events can we attend together in the future?

4. Rooming with a Colleague

This event I got to share my room with a former client and now colleague. We swapped war stories, offered advice, got great feedback and stayed up far too late chatting.

5. Going with Past and Current Clients

Unbeknownst to me I went to this event where one of my former clients was volunteering. We’d never met in person but it was wonderful to chat, have lunch together and catch up.

6. Getting on the Radar Screen

These are great places to get on the radar screen not only of the host but other influencers. Needing to get in front of someone, why not make the connection at a live event?

7. Getting Away

This one is easy—no interruptions, going some place you typically don’t and just enjoying a hot tub, pool, shopping, a beach, great restaurants–you name it

8. Creating Strategic Alliances and Joint Ventures

Here’s the place to start making them. When you’re open to them you’ll find connections easily

9. Free thinking

Most of us have so much to think about whether it be with running our business, family, job or all. You are in an environment to think creatively and often you’ll find big money ideas will come of it.

10. Having fun and making memories

If you choose events carefully and with purpose you’ll find people who you’ll treasure forever. It can be very benenficial to swap stories and support one a other. Being an entrepreneur or one in the making can be very trying. Why not find people who you want to enjoy the ride with?
