Today I share my takeaway from (of all places) the spy novels featuring Jason Bourne, made even more famous by the action flicks starring Matt Damon. I also share the 3 biggest challenges I've faced since "going solo" in my own business, and how being self-aware of our own tendencies can keep us coping habits that can adversely affect our business.

Live events are important both for our personal and professional development. But attending any kind of event requires both a large investment of time and money, and as such it should be treated like an investment.

This episode gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the steps I use to prepare for attending a live event and ensuring I know my "why" ... my purpose for attending. When I'm clear on this, nearly every event I attend becomes a success.

  2. Why is accomplishing this purpose important?
  3. What would be the ideal outcome of attending this event?
