The purpose of INBOUND 2014 is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections any aspiring writer and marketer needs to transform their career.
Why INBOUND 2014. I made the decision in November 2013 that I wanted to pave my own path – in two days, I accepted a job, packed my bags, said goodbye friends and family, and flew to San Francisco to join the startup movement. I quickly learned that there’s no standard way of navigating the trenches of forced flexibility, but there are amazing people out there to help your cause. When you’re starting out as a writer, you realize that you’re only as good as the connections you make and the stuff you publish. Enter INBOUND 2014.
INBOUND 2014 is an amazing opportunity not solely because of the profound insights and information from respected speakers around the world, but also because it’s a chance to share ideas with other aspiring writers and marketers while making huge connections.
Who knows? Maybe I find my next client, my next employer, or my next mentor. Or maybe I just throw my two senses into a conversation where Simon Sinek and Malcom Gladwell are shooting the shit about what truly motivates people. Either way, I’ll leave that conference with more knowledge, more understanding, and more wisdom about what’s happening in the world of inbound marketing and writing.

As renowned writer and moralist, Luc de Clapiers, once said:
“The greatest achievement of the human spirit is to live up to one’s opportunities and make the most of one’s resources.”
I fully intend to do so. This is a chance for me to learn how remarkable the INBOUND experience, and especially its content, truly is.
Gratitude. I had a recent conversation with a friend and fellow entrepreneur about the struggles of trying to make it in startup life. After mentioning a few highs and some lows taking place in my life, he said to me, “There are no lows, only highs. It just takes you awhile to figure that out.” And so, I am thankful for the experiences that have shaped me – the mentors, the guides, my family and friends – and for the fresh new perspective I too often miss.
