Attending Workshops

It seems every time I turn around these days, there's a seminar or workshop I would love to attend. I know how helpful and motivational they can be. You can always learn at least one thing if you pay attention. Plus, the other marketers you meet are worth the price of admission.

Okay, we know how beneficial it is to attend a live event. But unless you're my rich uncle (and I didn't know I had one, so please contact me) you can't afford to get to them too often. I would love to have gone to Willie Crawford's birthday bash, and the price to get in was more than reasonable. So why didn't I? Because by the time I factored in airfare and hotel, the price was out of reach.

So one solution is to keep your eyes open to events that come to your locality or a bigger city not far from you. And if you can't afford the entrance fee, offer to help in exchange for attendance. I did that for a two day workshop, and all I had to do was give handouts to everyone throughout the day. Go ahead and give it a try. Worst scenario is you get a "no", but at least you tried. And you never know, you might be just the help that was needed!
