Today, we rode into Boulder Colorado, from different directions, by different means. None of these were on Whit, shiny horses. That’s a certainty.
The towering mountains were almost as lofty as our unified GOAL. Create real change.
In two days, on April 11, we enter what feels like familiar territory, yet it again feels different.
The Restoration Rebels (now known as The Alliance of Independent Restorers) hold an annual Summit. This week will be our third.
We have themed this Summit as a Business Event. This could be looked at as a risky move in a trade that is dominated by technical standards, best practices and outlined procedures. Much of our industry, like many trades, are more blue collar, callous hands, white van driven imagery. Nothing at all wrong with this, minus the fact that this alone will not help us survive and thrive.
We attend conference after conference learning newest techniques, about the most current or advanced equipment or specialty products. While these are certainly an area where one can separate themselves and live up to the branding we so often create , “Quality”, “healthy”, etc....it is becoming more and more evident in this technology driven society that this singular vision will continue to shrink our margins and limit our ability to incorporate financial agility to swerve and adapt quickly.
THIS is the new battlefield. Innovation, AI, Data filtration, Specialty marketing, Understanding Margins, Business Valuation. All things that are generally missing in our toolboxes, but vital to survival and especially growth.
So we devised a plan to bring some of the most professional, successful and relevant speakers and businesspeople to one place. To download two days worth of their successes, failures and truly help paint a picture of what the best of the best are doing consistently to grow. I would also expect to learn what failures they had, and how to possibly prevent our suffering the same.
Our goal is to have almost 200 members leave with an agenda full of actionable and winning ideas, combined with examples to begin finding a way of implementation. Many will need outside help with these adaptations. This is where an adviser or coach can be instrumental. A professional charged with the focused mission of your cumulative goals.
Someone not burdened by the day to day micro-emergencies, not affected by the storm surge, not thwarted by being short staffed.
Literally a partner that will hold the compass and hold YOU accountable. Stopping is easy. Stalling is painful.
So we will provide the absolute best event possible.
I am still astonished at the quality of members, the quality of our sponsors and the professional level of our speakers. An assorted group with one goal. To raise the bar, pay it forward and leave a trail of learned success behind.
