For a very long time, I’ve dreamed of placing on a convention that’s much less about “getting free journeys to journey the world” and extra about high quality writing, branding, entrepreneurship, search engine optimisation, advertising, video manufacturing, and product creation — the matters that assist create a long-lasting enterprise that delivers worth to folks and stands the check of time.
I like the online, however in-person occasions are ten instances higher for studying and networking. There’s one thing about assembly one other person who bonds you a lot greater than following their lives on social media or by way of their weblog posts. Nose to nose connections is the place you may make probably the most lasting connections and relationships — I’ve met a few of my greatest associates, coworkers, and mentors at conferences.
I don’t assume my weblog can be practically as massive as it’s at the moment had I not stepped away from my laptop and began attending conferences and occasions in actual life. Now I am going to 7-10 conferences annually to satisfy folks, enhance my web site, and be taught new abilities.
And that brings me again to TravelCon….
