“Create a list of all possible events to attend, along with the costs associated (travel, etc.). Then prioritize the best shows and the best people on your team to attend, and make it happen! Have a list of what you want to learn and who you want to meet before you attend and then debrief those who attended after the event to compare the actual outcome to the plan.”

“Do your homework. Look for things coming up in your business or part of your strategic plans for the next 12 to 18 months. You can’t do it all. Seek counsel from others in the industry with specific questions you’d like to have answered to help your business grow.”
