Okay I’ve been screaming for years about the people claiming that live meetings are no longer necessary. They like to talk about them as “old school” and infer that they are an old-fashioned process that is no longer required to build a group.
They would have you believe that you can simply sit home in your bunny slippers and build online, or watch “The Secret” and “attract” prospects to you.
That’s just plain silly. The business is built with relationships and events. The people telling you that meetings don’t work any longer or that they are old school are not people that actually build networks. They make their money by “mining the miners,” selling their leads and systems.
There is nothing that can replace the social proof that happens when people gather together in one room. And there is some new research out that shows the benefits of live events versus just tele-seminars and conference calls. You can check it out here: http://su.pr/2KkxaN
Are you building through live events? Do you really get this?
