HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER BUSINESS CONFERENCES
Real advice from real entrepreneurs:
Next time you see a business conference we encourage you to do a quick Google search for the presenters. Normally you find little evidence that the presenters have built a real business and scaled it with real employees. Instead you find a lot of solo consultants, government agency employees, and sales people who have probably read a blog and now want to pass off their sales pitch as quality business information.
All of the information that we teach is practical information you can implement without hiring any of the presenters or signing up some overpriced course at the presentation.
Your network becomes your net worth. Most business events are swarming with salespeople and multi-level marketers, not people who have started real businesses. Being a business owner is tough because less than 1% of the population has created a successful business. Unfortunately, most of our family and friends will give us the wrong advice albeit with the best of intentions. Being around real business owners helps you overcome the natural hesitation to take the bold actions required to win at business.
