Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #228

11 Jul 2017 Lee's Tips,Seller Resources

There are many reasons entrepreneurs attend conferences. Learning and growing are part of the overview, but you do need to question your expenditures and time away from work. Ask yourself if the conference will help you grow your business.

It’s difficult to put an actual return on investment attached to a conference. Personally, I have always considered it part of my marketing and/or education budget, as well as an opportunity to “sharpen the saw”. Stephen Covey lists “Sharpen the saw” as the seventh habit of highly successful people. It means getting away from the everyday to refresh all parts of your being — taking a break from the work day to in order to renew yourself physically, spiritually, mentally and socially.

The social sharpening is important as well. You’ll usually meet experts and others in your industry who will inspire and energize you. Choose your conferences carefully, so your marketing and educational dollars will be well spent, and then sharpen away!

Advice for the Entrepreneur: Lee’s Tip #90

24 Jun 2014 Uncategorized

As an entrepreneur, it’s easy to become caught up in the day-to-day details of running your business. But don’t become so busy that you don’t have time for professional development. Sign up for that webinar; go to that conference; keep up with those blog posts, Facebook pages and other valuable content. That investment in yourself will pay off.
