Making a Marketer

Optimal Confusion, Events Progress, & Awe & Wonder…Lessons from Life & Business with Megan Powers

April 20, 2022

My solo shows have been quite popular and work well with my schedule (having to schedule just me!), so this is the third and final one of those in season five.

Every Monday, with one exception since February 8th of 2021, I have posted a “Monday Musing.” These musings are typically a story that include what I see as a business lesson. Sometimes they are just about something interesting intended to get people thinking! In this episode I talk about two that have really resonated with people on social media, and I also talk about progress and recognition in the meetings and events industry after two difficult years (the meat of this "sandwich").

Optimal Confusion 

Have you considered confusion can make you smarter? That it might fire-up a part of your brain that might have been dormant? This will get you thinking!

Events Progress

We are absolutely NOT where we were in 2019, nor should we be. We have had our challenges, but the progress the meetings and events industry is making AND recognition of those in it is important to talk about! There is data to support the progress--more can be learned on this episode of the Trade Show Talk Podcast - Episode 7 with Doug Emslie -- CEO of Tarsus and Kai Hattendorf -- CEO of UFI.

Awe & Wonder

You might not believe in symbolism, but you'll probably still think what happened to me was pretty cool. Do you ever just sit with yourself in the quiet? Amazing things can happen, and when they fall in line with a book you are reading? Even better! This resonated with a lot of people.
