This video reminds me of the past 2 & 1/2 days I spent at SAM 2012. The group of people, the hopes, ideas, business opportunities, learning and sharing that took place at Park City, Utah this weekend.
Everything was possible when we were young. Our imagination had no boundaries no limits. We had an idea and made it happen because we believed. Our creativity was limitless because we believed.
Then we started to grow older and we started to doubt our creative, imaginative side, our abilities. We experienced a few set backs and even some failures. Maybe we should just be like everyone else. Get a job have a normal life. Maybe we even did that for a while, but always in our minds were parts of our creative side sticking its head out here and there.
Finally no longer can our younger-self ideas be pushed back, hidden, again our creative side emerges and our entrepreneurial self is free. A new Entrepreneur is born and attends SAM 2012 and SAM 2013 next year.
I met some genuinely talented and aspiring entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Everyone came away from SAM 2012 with new ideas to carry out in their current business or hopeful new business adventure(s).
I will in the coming weeks and months be featuring some of these people and their talents in articles on this blog. Below is a small sample of the speakers and singing talent from the second day.
Looks like we spent the day being entertained by some truly talented musicians and we did, but there was tons of great information. It was styled after Ted Talks, only these talks were 21 minutes long and after every two to three talks we were entertained by a variety of artists.
It really helped with “information overload” which always happens at conferences.
SAM 2012 was hosted by Andrew Lock, Ryan Lee and Chris Farrell and I have to give them a hardy round of applause. SAM 2012 is by far the best event of this type, actually any type of event I have been to. I have been to some high dollar splashy events, but this event was bar none. There was no VIP section that only VIP’s had access to the speakers and hosts, everyone had the same opportunities, plenty of networking time and just an all-around feeling that this was for the attendees and not for profit, not how much can we make off each person that attends. They said they wanted to give something back and they did. Chris Farrell even hosted a coffee on Sunday morning, we sat around talking, networking and learning about each other.
Andrew, Ryan and Chris, I and I’m sure every attendee is saying the same, “Thank you for all the hard work and time you have spent getting SAM 2012 accomplished. I really appreciate everything you have done and I just wanted to let you know it didn’t go unnoticed”.
I for one have my tickets already for SAM 2013 and can hardly wait the twelve months to return to Park City.
