As many of you may know, this last weekend marked my first PB and Friends Weekend Event. To say that I am happy with the experience would be an understatement. Not only did I enjoy the wonderful feedback from my guests, I also loved learning so much about all of them, from both their struggles and concerns to their successes as well. I went to bed with a smile on my face and woke up even more determined to construct the best possible program for future attendees. In the coming weeks, I will be continuing my Up Close and Personal Series and highlighting those who attended the event.
I have been speaking a lot on the topic of mentoring and education as it is of such importance to me. I believe that by collaborating and sharing, we all become stronger as an industry. In the spirit of transparency, I will also be launching my new “Behind-The-Scenes” series tomorrow which will offer a candid look at what happens at some of our events. It is my hope that we can all share our experiences and continue our education though learning from one another’s mistakes (I have plenty to share) as well as encouraging one another to be our best. Lastly, we should never be threatened by the success of those around us, but rather, be inspired by it.
