Hello Everyone — I’ll be connecting to our call on Saturday while driving to Disneyland. I’ll be hindered by cell connection issues but will try my best to stay connected.
My updates for the week include:
I proofed the final version of my book and sent it to be published on Amazon.com. Should be up in about 5 – 7 days. I’m working on uploading a Kindle version.
Two more leads for Growth Curve Specialists that I followed up with and will connect again the week after Thanksgiving. Both seem very interested. I’ve created a power point slide deck that explains the program and it seems to be working. I’m going to make a few changes to it in preparation for our first online Executive Briefings we are holding in Jan. and Feb. These will be free webinars where we introduce the program to people who have signed up and if they want to be trained, they will be a part of our March group training session. Location to be determined.
Landed a new client — referral from one of my Growth Curve Associates — he wanted help with the financial piece of his business so I went ahead and set up several sessions with him to see what we can accomplish. So far so good. Have helped him understand where the company was losing money, how to fix it and now we are on to creating a sales program with sales quotas.
What I’m thinking about asking for input on is setting up the June Fireside Summit agenda. You’ve all been to conferences. You know what you like and what you don’t like. I’d be very interested in hearing what you feel the formula is for the ‘perfect conference’.November 20, 2017 at 3:52 pm #1127Mary Elizabeth MurphyKeymaster
Thank you for posting your updates and your request for brainstorming ideas. My challenge with conferences is the overwhelm of information or the feeling of “missing out”. The last conference I attended I found time to network in a very relaxed manner. We took a break from the crowd and had snacks on the front porch of the hotel followed with dinner with a different group. As a result I enjoyed my time with dear friends while meeting new friends and having the space to deepen and build relationship.
Sometimes allowing for unstructured time can be just as beneficial as filling the agenda with learning and trade shows.
