…and you don’t have to get ready!  IYKYK.

I attended a live event.  Yes…I actually left the house.  It was in Brooklyn, so I didn’t have to go far.

I’m excited to have seen a familiar friend and met some new ones, with whom I expect to work in the near future.

Part of my event prep routine (read: process) is to research the event.  My attendance is based on my perceived value and ROI (return on investment), which may not always be immediate or monetary.  This is a long game.

Once the decision is made, the real magic begins.  As old-school as I am, I have ditched the formal paper business card for apps that serve the same purpose.

As a techie, I like to be aware of options, so I signed up for several apps.  BTW, they are free, as is LinkedIn’s QR code, so don’t sleep!

One part of my process was to make sure I had them handy on my phone, whether the app or a screenshot on my home page.  I was more focused on my ticket than the apps, so I dropped the ball on that one.

Update your contact information across your virtual real estate and use your free QR code from LinkedIn or apps like HiHello or Blinq (the newest one ’cause a new friend put me on last night!)

Let the moral of my story remind you to stay ready so you don’t have to get ready!
