What's the best investment you can make? Is it Real Estate? Is it in the Stock Market or Bonds? (not today, that's for sure!) Nope - it's an investment in Yourself! You will always get the highest return when you make an investment in your business and YOU!
That's exactly what I did last Friday (and Thursday evening) when I made the investment of time and money in attending REtechSouth 09! It was priceless!
A one day event with great speakers(Jeff Turner- RESpres, Dave Jenks) fantastic classes(Social Media 101, Twitter, LinkedIn, SEO) an opportunity to network with some of the best in the industry (Missy Caulk, Jim Crawford, Debe Maxwell, Connie Harvey, Lane Bailey), and learning about some great new technology companies! (RealtyVid, ViewThisHome)
Let me tell you...this was not your regular real estate conference. It wasn't a sales pitch, or a big rah-rah event! It was all about sharing technology, sharing information. Matt Fagioli and Brad Nix did a phenomenal job of creating an environment where learning was fun... and real!
Lots of Ah-Ha moments, ideas and technologies that I can start using in my Virtual Assistantbusiness, today! (I'm updating my website and profiles this week!) And I have some cool ideas that I can share with my clients to help them incorporate these new technologies into their real estate business! Who knew that Flickr was a Social Network? And it's free! (Jeff Turner, I guess!)
Start investing wisely... Make an investment in yourself! The dividends are high and the payoff is endless! Attend REtechSouth next year! See you there!
