Get On The Rocket or Get Out of The Way, I'm Lighting the Match

Okay, folks, we're just about done with the second week of the year. You made it through the holidays. You went back to the gym. You've completed the beginning-of-the-year chit chat.

Now it's time to put on your steel-toed butt-kicking shoes and get this year GOING!

I promised myself I'd lay low and not do any travel until March 1st. My first big project of the year was to finish my part of the big Zenith Video. Done. Their planes took off yesterday and away they went.

So now I look up from my desk and see . . . The future is here!

I'm already hearing so much buzz about events in 2010 that my ears hurt. For the first part of the year I have the following events on my personal calendar so far:

Waiting for a point to all of this? Here it is. The future is now. Get on board. Attend at least one of these events. The networking is amazing. The content changes all the time. Even if you think the topics are the same as last year, the actual content is totally different.

You cannot attend these events without learning a great deal.

If it were up to me, our profession would be like accountants or others who have to go through a certain number of educational events each year. If this is your business and not just a hobby, please join me at one of the great events this year.

P.S. There are many other great events. For the most complete list I know, check out my weekly email. SMB
