Carving out a profitable niche in the competitive entertainment/event services industry has never been more challenging. While friends and family often question the mental stability of those of us with chronic entrepreneur syndrome, we seldom care—we just go on doing what we do, and hoping it makes a difference.
Building a business takes patience, persistence and what often seems to be super-human effort. However, when you step back for a moment, it all breaks down to three things: 1) Doing more with less 2) Expanding your list of products and services 3) Maximizing your marketing efforts.
As simple as that sounds, unless you are a born natural business person, you can’t go it alone. You need help, and while there are plenty of books and videos available, nothing is more inspiring than being face to face with someone who has accomplished much and is eager to share. So, with that as the underlying theme, here’s a preview of the professional development seminars being offered to key pass holders at the upcoming Photo Booth Expo. Watch for more information as t becomes available—and if you haven’t yet purchased your key pass, do so today. The price will never be lower!
