Priority Pursuit


Jul 6, 2022

I just had the pleasure of both speaking at and attending The Graceful Gathering—a boutique wedding photography conference—and I’m feeling pretty lit up. 

While I used to prioritize attending a couple conferences or workshops a year, COVID prevented these gatherings from happening. And, as a result, over the last two years, I got out of the habit of making conferences a priority. 

But, The Graceful Gathering was a beautiful reminder of (1) why these events matter and (2) the fact that conferences and workshops have been the inspiration for some of my biggest and most profitable business moves. 

I truly don’t believe Victoria Rayburn Photography would be what it is today without conferences and workshops. And, as a result, in this week’s episode of Priority Pursuit, I want to discuss three reasons creactive entrepreneurs should go to conferences and discuss how you can decide which conferences are right for you. 

Four Reasons Creative Entrepreneurs Should Go to Conferences

  1. You don’t know what you don’t know.
  2. You’re given an opportunity to be introduced to new softwares, products, tools, & even mentors.
  3. You give yourself time & space to work “on” your business instead of “in” your business. 
  4. Conferences are an opportunity to build community with people who understand your goals & struggles firsthand. 

How to Choose the Right Conferences for You 

  1. Look for conferences or workshops that are specific to your goals.  
  2. Attend diverse conferences.
  3. Choose conferences that speak to your goals & values.
