Goals & Mindset
Why did I want to attend? What were my goals and expectation? What did I hope to learn or accomplish or take away from Podcast Movement 2017? Networking Clarity Knowledge & Education Inspiration & Creativity Travel/Fun/Social Interaction
The definition of networking is: interacting with other people to exchange information and develop contacts, especially to further one’s career in business. I am going to meet people face to face…vendors, sponsors, podcasters, online friends, people I follow, people who follow me, listeners to this podcast… My networking strategy? I am armed with uniquely designed business cards and I have practiced my elevator pitch and brand story. Who am I? What do I do? Who do I help? Etc. Listening is a big part of networking so I am thinking of questions to ask in order to get people to open up and talk while I can listen and be interested.
I am looking for help and advice in the direction of my business. My clarity strategy: To watch and observe and listen and ask a lot of questions. What are other people doing right in their business that I can apply to my own
Knowledge & Education.
I’m a tech nerd and a student of everything. I am looking to learn new technology and gear and tools to help me create better content. My strategy: Attend a variety of sessions, workshops and learn from the vendors….
Inspiration & Creativity.
I am looking to recharge and energize and refresh my creative juices. I am attending Podcast Movement for motivation and inspiration to move my business forward. Inspiration and creativity strategy: to seek out people with similar skills and interests and rinse and repeat.
I love to travel and explore and looking forward to hanging with a bunch of podcasters and creative geeks
I am attending Podcast Movement 2017 to learn, create and move forward. Wish me luck. Cheers, Mike
