On AWAI Bootcamp:
“I’m a big fan of using the web and social media to build my freelance business. It’s what I’ve been doing for almost 20 years now. But if I do the math – and I have – I’ve built more business relationships, picked up more clients, and made more money through the one-on-one contacts I have made at live events. It’s always been this way for me, and it’s still just as true each time I go to Bootcamp. I meet people face to face, develop new relationships and attract more work. And it’s not just because I’m a speaker. I see it happening for attendees all the time. The point being, a thousand “virtual” connections will rarely deliver as much value to your business as a single face-to-face encounter with a prospective client or partner.”
