The Best/Worst Thing About Business Ownership: Being Your Own Boss

Apr 14, 2016

Idea XchangeEntrepreneurship can be exhilarating and crazy-making all at once. The great thing is, you’re your own boss. The rough thing is, you’re your own boss; when you run into an issue, there’s no one to ask for advice.

Or at least it seems that way. The fact is, hundreds of business owners have been right where you are and have resolved many of the same unique challenges that arise in this industry. You just might not know where to find them when you need someone to bounce ideas off of.

The Idea Xchange at CEDIA Business Xchange was designed to solve precisely this challenge. This session brings home tech business owners together for organic peer-to-peer conversation and problem-solving around topics selected by YOU. Topics could include areas such as training and talent management, sales and marketing, and operations.

Here is what just a few of the 2015 Business Xchange attendees had to say about this unique session:

  • "You cannot buy or read anything that compares to the value of discussing business successes and failures with your peers."
    — Sean Ruth, Redi Systems

  • "A lot of us, no matter how big or small, have the same issues and the same questions. So to come together as a group and try to figure out the answers to those questions is really a priceless tool."
    —Heather Sidorowicz, Southtown Audio Video

  • "It’s in an uncompetitive environment, and it makes a lot of sense to learn from people who have been exactly where we are right now."
    —Craig Colvin, Branson Design Group

The Idea Xchange is just one component of an event that’s designed to help you solve your biggest business challenges. At this year’s event, you’ll discover how to find and keep great people through content that’s tailor-made to help you build a dynamic and committed team. Learn more about the event schedule.
