Thursday through Friday (March 26-27) of last week, I attended Social Media Examiner’s Social Media Marketing World conference in San Diego. I want to share the six key takeaways I found most important and actionable for improving your business.

At the ASM4 Live Event, Amazing.com was honored to have Sir Richard Branson as a special guest. Matt Clark and Jason Katzenback interviewed Sir Richard Branson, and he shared a wealth of knowledge, business advice, as well as beautifully rich stories from his past. At the end of the interview, he invited two people to ask a question, and surprised them by allowing them to come on stage. Here is the story of Liat Shamash, one of the lucky two invited to ask a question (story found on her blog Baby Mushroom):
Our team was touched by this wonderful thank you card from an ASM member, Deb, who attended ASM 4 Live Event in Las Vegas. Jason Katzenback said, “Gotta love this kind of feedback!” and we completely agree. Inside the card it says:
Dear Jason and Matt,
I was at the ASM Event at Las Vegas in February 2015. I wanted to thank you both for hosting a first class event. While I’ve eaten at the West Point Mess Hall with 4400 cadets, but never attended a training event as large as yours. It was run in a way to impress everyone, not only for how smoothly and well executed, but mostly the great attitudes of all. You two really set the tone for a supportive environment. Thank you for making it such a worthwhile event on many levels. When you’re ready to enjoy Paradise in Hilo, Hawaii, please let us know. We’d be delighted to host you.

One of the most rewarding parts of what we do, is actually seeing the success entrepreneurs, such as yourself, are having in this business! Last month we received a letter from ASM member, Patrick Maioho, which told the amazing story of how he got started!
Hearing Patrick?s story brought up so many great points about what it means to be an entrepreneur and reminded us of what it takes to get where we are right now. His story was so moving that we wanted to share it with all of you, as well as catch up with him to see how his business is going right now.
One question I received recently asked me…if I had it all to do over in business, what would I have done differently? Looking back, there is definitely one thing that stands out. Watch this week’s video and find out what it is!
Let me know what you think in the comments. Thanks!
