How To Make The Most At Wreath Makers LIVE!
I’m sharing some tips from fellow wreath-makers that think will help you out when you come join us at the next Wreath Makers LIVE! conference.
Bring Your Business Cards
Like any other conference, you want to make sure people you meet can connect with you when they return home. So get those business cards printed and ready, and make sure to have a stack on hand when you go to conference events. (Denna H.)
Network, Network, Network
You made the financial investment to be there; now make sure you make the most of it. Meet other business owners who want to grow just like you. Networking makes the journey far more interesting, especially when you develop a micro-community that cheers each other on. (Denna H.)
Get Out There And Introduce Yourself
It doesn’t matter if a person you want to talk to is a presenter or a person that you absolutely admire; go say hi! Hang out during the breaks and at lunchtime. You’ll make a ton of new friends and helpful contacts. (Debbie D.)
Have An Extra (Empty) Suitcase Handy
There will be incredible vendors at the event with incredible items for sale that you won’t want to pass up. Bring the extra room with you so you can bring goodies home from Wreath Makers LIVE! (Gary F.)
Ensure Your Phone Has Plenty Of Photo Storage Available
Trust me; you’re going to be taking a LOT of pictures. Make room on your phone ahead of time for all the pictures you’ll be taking. We’ve all been guilty of trying to snap a photo, and BOOM, no can do because the memory is full. Prepare ahead of time! (Carol W.)
Keep A Portable Charger On Hand
Wreath Makers LIVE! is an action-packed event, and you do NOT want to be stuck in the corner charging your phone. Bring a portable charger (or two!) so that you always have enough power and don’t need to be running for the nearest outlet. (Carol W.)
Sit With Different People Every Chance You Get
Play musical chairs at each session. Not literally, but you know what we mean. That way, you get to know different people throughout the event. (Marguerite P.)
It helps in between meals. No one wants to hang out with Mr. and Mrs. Hangry! If you bring extra for your table, it helps make a great ice breaker, too! (Kaycee L. & Mari B.)
Dress In Layers
You’ll likely find that sometimes conference rooms get chilly or are warm. If you dress in layers, you can add more on or peel them off so that you stay comfortable. (Mary R.)
Come To Wreath Makers LIVE! Ready To Learn
The entire experience, from start to finish, is designed with one goal in mind: to help you learn how to grow your business. It happens in multiple ways, from business coaching to design inspiration and networking. Every single aspect of Wreath Makers LIVE! is designed to help your business grow and improve.
Come with an open mind and be ready to take notes on everything you learn so you don’t forget it as soon as you get home! (Bobbie C.)
