That button is on the right side of the blog, too. It’s there to show that I am planning to attend Inman News’ Real Estate Connect Conference in San Francisco, the first week of August. It’s important to me as a Realtor and a businesswoman that I stay on top of trends and tools for my industry, and Connect is the premiere conference to make sure that I am doing so. The day before the conference begins, I’ll attend a one day, peer to peer ‘unconference’ called Real Estate BarCamp (it doesn’t involve a bar until later in the evening, I promise. You can click through to the site if you’d like to read more about it.) And the first day of Inman Connect involves a breakout session called Blogger Connect, where I’ll get to listen to and learn from folks who, like me, use blogging and social media as the main way they reach their clients and community.
I attended the conference last summer and the New York version of it in January of this year, and both times I came away with new ideas, inspiration, and knowledge to help me grow my business and be a bettter Realtor for my clients. I’m looking forward to the trip this year!
