It's Friday, and that means a new "blue-plate special" from the SCU Diner. Today's lunch special has a little different purpose than many of the past. While it's a tried and true recipe from a couple of past Fast Food Fridays, I've added a few new "sides" to choose from.
Remember why I started this series - to give you more ideas to build a stronger business. As right-brain creative types, you'd much rather be clicking the shutter than checking your earnings. You'd rather be working in post-production on yesterday's shoot than working on your marketing plan for the rest of the year, and forget about thinking about what you want to be doing in 2020! LOL
So, here's what's being served today - with ClickCon coming up in Chicago, August 5-7, I want to give you some new ideas on getting the most out of the conference, and at the same time give you a few repeats from past posts.
The picture I kicked off today's post kind of says it all. So many of you let stress get the best of you before heading off to a conference.
The idea started after two phone conversations and a barrage of emails and Facebook comments from attendees who were close to hitting the anxiety button because this is their first conference. They're worried about missing something; not getting into a class because it's already full; picking the right instructors, etc.
Well, what better place than the SCU Diner to serve up the recipe for success at ANY conference you attend?
A Little Planning and You Can Stop Worrying!
A while back, I wrote about getting the most out of a convention, in fact there are at least three posts over the last few years, but today's is tied more directly to the technique of maximizing your time during a conference.
Here's the bottom line - have fun! That means work hard and play hard, and while, for some of you, it might be your first conference, it's the start of an incredible series of experiences.
What a kick!
ClickCon was AMAZING!
It's rare that a first year conference has the power that ClickCon brought to the industry last week. Great speakers, a busy trade show and 1300 attendees loaded with a passion to learn and grow. Put the show on your radar so you know the dates for 2020 when they're announced!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
