Forbes 30 Under 30 Summit - Recap
#ForbesUnder30 Summit in Boston was energizing.
I used to be drawn to #conferences for the speakers and panelists, but as I've continued my #entrepreneurial journey, I seek relationships - a very small number of them.
At a conference like #Forbes with 7,000+ attendees, my goal isn't to ensure everyone sees my business card (which they'll probably throw away). My goal is to make real, like-minded friends.
I can often trace #career opportunities back to someone I met at a conference. Usually not a headline #speaker, but often the deep, meaningful connections from hour-long chats with 2-3 people, and the resulting ripple effects.
Quality over quantity.
