Sometimes I read things on Facebook that just get stuck in my head and I can't get them out. This is an example of one of those times. This question and the constant loop of the old song lyrics "lookin' for love in all the wrong places" got stuck in my head. Bonus points if you know that song! Seriously message me!
Anyway, I think people often look for the answers to their challenges in the wrong places. The operational side of running a real estate team or a brokerage is something that you are not going to learn at a conference. You will learn about systems, software, ideas, strategies, etc. but what you won't learn is how to piece all of those things together in your personal business.
So go to a conference for all the other great reasons there are to attend a conference. But don't go thinking you will magically find the fix to your operational challenges. That fix is going to take time, planning, implementing, documenting and refining.
So as the song goes, don't go lookin' for love in the wrong places.
