015 | The Power of In-Person Events

Jun 10, 2022

In this episode, Jess is talking all things related to the importance and impact of how attending in-person events can shape us as individuals, coaches, and entrepreneurs.

Imagine walking into the auditorium for the first time of a conference you are attending. Do you hear the buzz of the crowd? The thumping of any music? Do you see vendor stalls that have groups of like-minded people that share your passion surrounding them? This is the palpable energy Jess brings to our attention first. An energy that is contagious and fuels your fire to commit to growth for you as a person and your business. This energy is the catalyst that propels you to meaningful conversations and connections.

When making these connections with other entrepreneurs, you are giving them and yourself an opportunity. It is an opportunity to be validated. Let’s face it, not everyone in our lives understands the roller coaster that is entrepreneurship. But, when you are in attendance at such events, you get to meet people that understand your struggles and know the importance of celebrating your wins. As Jess explains, everyone that is attending that live event has made an investment in themselves– they want those same conversations that force growth and change and drive out complacency.

Finally, Jess gives us a call to action. If you are craving an event and notice that it does not exist– go create it. Bring your idea to fruition and run with it.

As always, cheers to your evolution!
