Alternative Conferences

September 14, 2009 at 10:01 am Leave a comment

I watched the New York conference for Social Good on Live stream on August 28 from the comfort of my desk – no charge. The TED conferences are simulcast for a fee that is considerably lower than the in-person fee. Streaming your live conference allows people to attend who wouldn’t normally attend because of travel or registration cost. Your focus is on the live conference and the streaming happens around that.

Teleconferencing and video conferencing are options where the presenters and the participants are at their own desks listening and/or watching through their computers or phones. The conference is designed around the feed, the feed is part of the message, to paraphrase Marshall McLuhan. There are many free and fee based services.

Other options include:

Creating content and posting it on a blog, Slideshare or Audible.

Setting up a social network on one of the platforms such as Ning or Bebo.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
