With WPPI wrapping up yesterday, those of you who were there are headed home today. While you're planning on the front end of any conference is important, the wrap up is even more critical! We all do the same thing - we go to a convention, get pumped up with new ideas, return home and then life gets in the way. All that enthusiasm and great ideas get put aside as we put out the fires that came up while we were gone. Next thing you know, they've been put in a shoe box and kicked under the bed!
Here are some ideas to implement right now, because just taking notes and getting excited about new ideas isn't enough to build your business. It's time to implement!
"The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing."
Your follow-up after a convention is just as important as all the planning you put in on the front-end. In fact, in terms of growing your business and your skill set, it's more important. You just invested several days of your time to become a better artist and business owner - don't let the enthusiasm disappear with the day in day out challenges of the business and your life!
