Good Afternoon Everybody,
Things are really hopping here at Photoshop World! My program "Lightroom For Wedding and Portrait Photographers" last evening at Photoshop World went very well. It was then off the the Peachpit author's reception for an adult beverage and some snacks. It felt good to have the break.
Next it was off to the big bash at House of Blues with Scott Kelby's band rocking' the house. We wrapped the long day about 10:30 p.m. and are out early again today. I did a small segment for Photoshop User TV this morning with Dave Cross. I'll keep you posted as to when it will run.
I have one more program this evening and two booth programs this afternoon plus I have a trade show booth as wee so it is going to be another busy day. If you get a chance, come on by and say HI.
On with today's post....
Expensive Education Or Best Deal Ever!
Today's post is a more “food for thought” post. Here's why - we're here at Photoshop World with over 3000 other attendees, and instructors enjoying the experience. But in talking with some of the attendees, I'm a little surprised by what I hear. "Oh my gosh, the programs start early today!" "I think I'll sleep in and catch a later one."
Why would someone spend BIG bucks, somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,600 or more to head to a mind blowing educational experience, AND THEN SLEEP IN? I'm just amazed by that type of thinking. I mean, go to bed when you get home. Soak in every single piece of information while you got a chance!
Attendees can make that $1,600 be the educational bargain of the century by filling every moment of the day by attending as many programs and booth presentations as possible. The more you attend, the lower the price per learning experience.
Sleeping (not using your time efficiently) only increases your educational costs tremendously. Why would anyone want to make that kind of choice? My advice, spend every waking moment soaking up every ounce of info that you can. Enjoy all the extracurricular activities on the convention agenda, make new friends and exchange ideas with them. Make every minute count - make your next educational opportunity be the best value in the world! It is the ONLY way to go. I love seeing so many attendees doing just that - you can always sleep when you get home ;~)
By the way, our "Captured By The Light 2010" tour [link] is shaping up to be one popular program. I suspect we will have 200+ in both Phoenix and Houston, and over 300 attending in Dallas! WOW! We are looking forward to seeing EVERYONE next week.
You can still register right here. Please be sure to use PROMO CODE CBLDPT10 (ten) to save yourself $20 off the $79 registration price. That brings your cost down to only $59 for one BLAST of an evening!
Hey gang, I've got to be hitting the road, so how about see everyone tomorrow for another episode of "The One That Got Away". Have a great one and I'll see you then.
