If you’ve ever thought about attending a live event or conference, it can get quite overwhelming trying to decide amongst the many events taking place.

And given the costs involved for things like tickets, flights and hotels - not to mention the time away from work and family - it can be quite a financial investment. So how can you ensure that you’re getting the best return on your hard-earned dollars when deciding which conference to attend?

In this episode, Michelle Loretta, the organizer of the Be Sage conference, and I are sharing our best tips on how you can go about deciding which conference to spend your hard earned dollars on. We’re talking about how to do your research, what you should be doing before, during and after the event, and even some savvy tricks on how you can start budgeting to attend that conference you’ve been eyeing.

And I’m sharing it in this episode of the Office Talk podcast.

When you get an inquiry from a potential client, you probably send over a proposal or quote that outlines the basic terms of your services, but when the customer accepts and wants to proceed, then what do you do?

Are they supposed to sign the proposal?
