I am so looking forward to attending this year’s Creative Freelancer’s Conference in San Diego!
I attended last year’s inaugural conference with a bit of trepidation. Who else would be there? Even though I learned who the presenters would be (professionals like Ilise Benum and Peleg Top from Marketing Mentors) and what topics would be discussed, would they really be helpful to someone like myself who had been in business for 25 years? Would I make friends or would everyone keep to themselves and feel “competitive”?
I’m more than happy to say that my fears were unfounded. There were almost 200 attendees, and everyone was so friendly and supportive, eager to share their experiences, and unafraid to talk about their mistakes. I attended every seminar, roundtable and informal conversations I could, because it turns out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! I returned from the conference energized, with new ideas and renewed passion for what I do. (And a fair amount of swag, to boot!)
So I have high hopes for this year’s conference and I’m sure I won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to seeing people from last year and making new friends, too! I’m confident that I’ll bring home more new insights and ideas on running my business, with the result that I will be better able to serve my clients and help their businesses grow.
