In 2018, the name of the game is leveling up.
Whether it's your love life, your social life, your finances, or your career, your intentions for the year should revolve around prioritizing yourself as an investment. As we cultivate our ultimate lives, the seeds that we plant in the soil now could very well predicate how lush and alive your garden is in the future.
When it comes to the pursuit of success, the road less traveled is sometimes exactly where you need to be. And while reading every book your favorite mentor in your head has recommended, and keeping those business podcasts on deck to listen to daily are great proactive first steps, it's important to do the work towards your dream job in other ways as well.
Some aspiring entrepreneurs might not see the value in conferences, but they are there. You are surrounded by like-minded people that give you the ability to network around you, you gain a wealth of knowledge from industry giants, and you can even rub elbows with some of the people you hope to have a seat at the table with down the line of your career trajectory.
The value is unquestionable.
Increase your network and your net worth and level up the right way by making room in the budget to attend retreats, summits, and of course, conferences. To get you started, click through the gallery below to learn more about our selections of the ten conferences you should invest in this year.
