SPI 240: Tips and Tricks for Getting the Most Out of the Conferences You Attend

Conferences can be a thrilling, unforgettable way to connect with fellow entrepreneurs and learn from the online business community. But which conferences should you go to? How do you meet other people once you’re there? And what on earth do you talk about? In today’s episode, I’m answering all these questions and more.

From my first experiences at Blog World Expo to my recent trip to FinCon, I’ve learned how to navigate the dizzying number of opportunities a conference provides—even as an introverted newcomer. I’ll share my tips for striking up conversations, making introductions, connecting with folks who have shared interests, minimizing anxieties, and having a truly meaningful time. You’ll also hear my shortlist of favorite business conferences to attend, as well as where I’ll be speaking later this year and on into 2017.

Are you ready to start having unforgettable conference experiences?
