As a solopreneur, I wear many hats, and it can be overwhelming at times. But attending the Revup Shenandoah County Business Summit was a game-changer for me!
I was hesitant to give up a whole day, but it was worth it.
The summit offered valuable sessions on various topics, and I was impressed by the quality of the speakers. I was particularly surprised by how much I enjoyed the Artificial Intelligence (AI) segment taught by A.D. Carter of Retail VR, LLC. I never thought AI was relevant to my business, but now I’m hooked! I’ve already used AI to write social media posts and blog content, and I see huge potential for it to save me time and streamline my workflow.
Other standout sessions for me included marketing advice from Janel Laramie, pricing strategies from John Fogle, and a presentation on becoming a destination business by Katie Mercer and Amber Smoot. I even learned some valuable time management tips from Becky Stickley’s segment on conquering procrastination.
What struck me most was the value I gained from every single session. The summit was a well-rounded and informative event that exceeded my expectations. I’m grateful to the organizers, including the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce, for putting together such a fantastic program.
If you’re a solopreneur or small business owner looking to rev up your business, I highly recommend attending future events like this. You never know what new ideas, strategies, and tools you might discover!
Stay tuned for upcoming events and resources from the Laurel Ridge SBDC and Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce to help your business thrive!
