No, I can’t afford that.
That was the first thing that came to mind, the first time my primary business informed me of an event that they were having. Wow, was I ever wrong! I had it backwards. I couldn’t afford not to go.
One of the best investments you can make.
Remember, that you have a business you have to treat it as such. Not Like a hobby. And when you look at it this way, you have to remember that when you start and operate any business you will have to make investments. If you’re not willing to make certain investment and sacrifices towards your business is suggest that you stick to your J.O.B.
It doesn’t matter if you’re business is in network marketing, multilevel marketing or internet marketing they all have company events and I strongly suggest that you attend as many of them as possible.
My personal experience.
Okay now, so finally after hearing over and over again and a friend of mine telling me that he’d better see me at the event. I made the decision to go, and another reason why I went was because it was close to home, just a few hours away by car, and I do love driving my car. So, what the heck? If I don’t like it, I’ll just get in my car and leave.
However that was not the case, because I loved it, the speakers, the atmosphere and the camaraderie that comes with attending such an event is absolutely invigorating.
Then I attended one hosted by my primary internet marketing community Carbon Copy Pro and Jay Kubassek. All I can say is “Oh My God” now I’m sitting side by side having breakfast, lunch and dinner with Jay and the income earners from my company and were talking fun, family and business just as if we were friends for ever. I just couldn’t believe it, these are people that I just see in blogs and hear in webinars but never did I think that I could be sitting by a pool in a 5 star Arizona resort.
Now here’s another event. The My Lead System Pro Live the Dream II event in Disney’s Coronado Springs resort. I’ve never been to Disney, or Florida, and neither has my wife. So guess what? That’s right now we have. So not only did we get to do something we’ve always wanted to do. And while my wife was out playing with Minnie and Mickey. I was getting some of the finest training that anybody can get. I was rubbing elbows with the owners and founders of MLSP, Norbert Orlewicz and Brian Fanale. Not to mention, Jairek Robbins (Son Of Tony Robbins) Top producing internet and network marketing pro’s like Todd Falcone, Mark Hoverson, Tim Erway, Ray Higdon, David Woods, Deagan Smith, Rob Fore, Tracey Walker, and Diane Hochman. These are the people that are the top earners in their primary company, be it internet marketing, network marketing or multilevel marketing. These are the people that I always wanted to meet but didn’t know how. Well this is it! Attend your company events.
8 reasons why you should attend events.
- Stick with the winners. You are surrounded by your company’s top earners.
- Get exposed; let the people that you wanted to know get to know you.
- Get connected with other like minded people and make new friends.
- Receive to most current and up to date information, marketing strategies and business tactics.
- Not only do you see who’s on top, but you also get to know who’s moving up. This way you know exactly who to connect with.
- Discounts on training, info products and future events.
- Build your reputation as a leader by taking pictures with these leaders and if you’re really ambitious ask these leaders to give you a video interview that you can use on your blog, website or even as a product or free offer.
- Fun, these events are not all business. They are fun, exciting and empowering. When you get back home from these events you are ready for action.
The Bottom line…
Is that I was wrong. I can’t afford not to attend these events. And Even though business events do cost money, between airfare, hotel fees and food they do add up. However as entrepreneurs we have to consider this as a necessary business expense. With the proper planning and budgeting attending business events can and will becomes not only one of the best investments you can make towards your business, it will also be one of the most rewarding. I can honestly say this because I know this from my own experience. Now my biggest challenge is, not over doing it because just like anything else we need balance in everything that we do. And I can see myself going to more events and getting less work done. I have come to love these events, and I am absolutely sure so will you.
