“When you surround yourself with so many like-minded people that are so positive, it creates such a radiance in yourself that you cannot help but leave a better person.”
Alice (2:22 - 2:38)
Events are the perfect place to get re-energized.
It’s event season, which is excellent news! If you’re feeling a bit burned out from all the meetings, home parties, and product launches, a company event is a perfect place to get re-energized.
At the convention, you’ll get to hear success stories from people that were once right where you are, and you’ll make a ton of new connections and friendships that you’ll motivate you to take your business to the next level.
“To benefit from the people at the event who are successful and want to make an impact in the world, you’ll have to make an effort to connect with them.” - Alice (5:17 - 5:41)
Unfortunately, that enthusiasm often fades away when you leave the event and get back to your regular life. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Let’s look at three simple tips to help you sustain momentum after you leave the convention.
3 Tips to Help You Sustain Momentum After a Convention
Create a Vision for Your Next Event - Conferences are inspiring. You’ll learn a lot of new information, hear many stories, and you’ll probably feel excited about what’s possible in your business. One of the best ways to ensure that you stay excited post-event is to write down your vision for where you want your business to be by the time the next event comes around.
Connect with Others at the Event - There will be people attending the conference that have accomplished what you’ve envisioned for your business. They tend to have a giving heart and - more than likely - they’ll be very willing to help you with tips and tools to grow your business. But you have to make an effort to connect with them. At the end of the day, don’t simply head back to your room. Instead, seek out other business owners and create a connection with them.
Get Started Right Away - You’re probably going to take some notes at the conference that are full of wisdom and tips to propel your business. Don’t let them go to waste as they sit on your desk and you promise yourself you’ll get to them tomorrow. Start implementing what you’ve learned right away. If you have some downtime on your way home, either at the airport or on the road, that’s the perfect time to start booking some meetings, scheduling home parties, or making a plan to follow up with the connections you’ve just made.
“Before you attend a live event, make a plan for how you are going to take the information you learn there and use it to grow your business.” - Brooke Elder (14:52 - 15:01)
This week, come up with a plan for how you’re going to utilize all the information you’ve learned, the stories you’ve heard, and the connections you’ve made at your upcoming event to take your business to the next level by the time the next one comes around.
Events are incredible resources, don’t let yours go to waste. Let it be a driving force in the momentum that will keep your business moving forward, even in the crazy hectic summer months.
