An incredible community of online entrepreneurs recently gathered for three days in Louisville, Kentucky. The event sold out in one day months ahead of time, but you can still follow the event by following the hashtag #ces3KY on social media. Join the Facebook group for the event and scroll through to catch a glimpse of the energy.
In the audience of ~550 were some of the most successful, giving, friendly, powerful leaders, students, authors and experts in the world of Internet business.
I can’t hope to express in a simple blog post the mind blowing impact that these kind of event have on every attendee. I feel strongly that we are raising the standard of what an Internet biz conference should look like.
Last year, in his opening comments, our keynote speaker Rabbi Daniel Lapin had us on the edge of our seats – and one of the biggest take aways for most people was the fact that in life as in business and in all other arenas, we are NOT meant to be alone. Solitude is poison, and as Internet entrepreneurs we have to resist the urge to “hide” and try to “go it alone”. Relationships matter in internet business – arguably more than in “real life” because we can be tempted at times to sit behind a keyboard in solitude as online marketers, but that’s NOT OK!
There’s something powerful about face-to-face meetings like CES. Because the core of our audience is made up of such passionate, caring, giving people, the atmosphere is always alive and quite emotional even at times. It’s hard to explain, but from the pics and comments that were posted last year, you can start to get a feel for the impact of events like this.
