I’m just playing around.
Every event is different. Live events are always the hardest, but the best way to connect with others.
I love going to conferences. I love how the unexpected laughter happens when meeting new people. The hard part is getting through the lulls and staying excited. The thing is that too often a couple days of high octane connecting wears me out.
When I arrive back home it takes me two days to recover. The traveling and staying up late is hard on my old bones.
It’s why I love online events. It’s a lot less taxing on the body. You can hang out for an hour, meet a few new people, and go have dinner with my family. I love meeting people in person, but being a family man I can’t travel every week. I would miss my family too much.
Eventually I do end up meeting these people at conferences. They feel like old friends when we do meet each other in person.
I’m curious…what do you think about online events? Do you enjoy them?
